Magma dynamics with the Enthalpy Method: benchmark solutions and magmatic focusing at mid-ocean ridges

Abstract:

Magma genesis and transport link mantle convection with surface volcanism and hence with the long-term chemical and morphological evolution of the Earth's crust. Modeling the dynamics of magma-mantle interaction in tectonic settings remains a challenge, however, because of the complexity of multi-component thermodynamics and melt segregation in a permeable, compactible, and actively deforming mantle matrix. Here I describe a flexible approach to formulating the thermochemistry of such models ...
