Magma Dynamics, Crystallisation and Chemical Differentiation of the 1959 Kilauea Iki Lava Lake, Hawaii, revisited

Jellinek, M; Kerr, Ross


Using constraints from an extensive database of geological and geochemical observations along with results from fluid mechanical studies of convection in magma chambers, we identify the main physical processes at work during the solidification of the 1959 Kilauea Iki lava lake. In turn, we investigate their quantitative influence on the crystallization and chemical differentiation of the magma, and on the development of the internal structure of the lava lake. In contrast to previous studies,...[Show more]
