  • Mixing in axisymmetric gravity currents and volcanic conduits 

    Samasiri, Peeradon (2018-09-21)
    The first part of this thesis investigates the mixing of ambient fluid into axisymmetric high Reynolds number gravity currents. A series of laboratory experiments were conducted in which small scale gravity currents travelled ...
  • The 2014-15 Bárðarbunga-Holuhraun magmatic rifting episode: A seismic study 

    Agustsdottir, Thorbjorg (2018-11-24)
    On 16 August 2014 an unusual sequence of earthquakes began near the southeastern rim of the ice-covered Bárðarbunga caldera in central Iceland. Over the course of two weeks a dyke propagated 48 km beneath the glacier ...
  • Kinematics and Dynamics of Continental Deformation 

    Penney, Camilla Emily (2018-07-04)
    In contrast to the oceans, deformation in the continental lithosphere is distributed over broad regions. This dissertation is composed of three separate but related studies investigating the kinematics and dynamics of such ...
  • Magmatic processes at basaltic volcanoes: insights from the crystal cargo 

    Salem, Lois Claire (2018-07-20)
    A plethora of magmatic processing occurs in magma reservoirs, where melts are stored prior to eruption. Magma reservoirs are complex, open systems, and often multiple reservoirs are partially inter-connected from source ...
