Volcanic gas composition, metal dispersion and deposition during explosive volcanic eruptions on the Moon

Renggli, Christian; King, Penelope; Henley, Richard; Norman, Marc


The transport of metals in volcanic gases on the Moon differs greatly from their transport on the Earth because metal speciation depends largely on gas composition, temperature, pressure and oxidation state. We present a new thermochemical model for the major and trace element composition of lunar volcanic gas during pyroclastic eruptions of picritic magmas calculated at 200–1500 °C and over 10−9–103 bar. Using published volatile component concentrations in picritic lunar glasses, we have...[Show more]
