  Information - GMPV19 Mechanisms and thermo-fluid dynamics of magmatic processes

Event Information
Understanding the thermo-fluid dynamics of magmatic processes and
volcanic eruptions is a big challenge of modern volcanology. Natural
magmas are multiphase, multicomponent materials with very complex
properties, rheology, and phase relationships. Time scales span from the
hundreds or thousands years of magma chamber processes, to the seconds
necessary for rapid acceleration and fragmentation of magma in volcanic
conduits, to the milliseconds of supersonic flow transition during
explosive eruptions. Relevant length scales are as wide as well, from
the kilometers of magma chamber, volcanic conduit, and atmospheric
domains involved, to the microns of crystal and gas bubble nucleation.
On the other hand, the capability to model and simulate such extremely
complex phenomena is strictly required in order to understand the
factors controlling the dynamics of magmas and eruptions, to predict
volcanic scenarios, and to forecast the volcanic hazard.
We invite contributions presenting advances in the fields of
thermodynamics and fluid dynamics of magmatic processes and volcanic
eruptions. New model developments describing the complex properties and
processes characterizing natural magmas and volcanic phenomena, as well
as numerical simulations aimed at understanding the physics, reproducing
past eruptions, or predicting future scenarios, are welcome.
