Geology Seminar: "Artificial Spatter Piles: Constraining pyroclastic eruptions in Idaho and on the Moon"
Erika Rader '07, Post-doctoral Researcher, NASA Ames, will speak. The morphological differences seen in spatter clasts at volcanic systems in Idaho have shown that eruption conditions systematically affect characteristics like clast size, shape, and vesicularity. With experimental studies, we have constrained these eruption conditions, allowing to estimate eruption temperatures for Idaho eruptions, and explore the effects of space on Lunar spatter clasts.
