LASI V: Silica Flour Crust and Vegetable Oil Magma– Using Laboratory Experiments to Better Understand Ground Deformation, Magma Movement, and Volcanic Eruptions
Note: Dr. Olivier Galland, a senior researcher at the Physics of Geological Processes Center of Excellence at the University of Oslo, presented a talk, “Ground deformation associated with shallow magma intrusions” at the LASI V conference in Port Elizabeth, South Africa in October 2012. The article below is based on this talk and also an interview with Dr. Galland. Over a few weeks, I am highlighting some of the research …
