Abstract A model that accounts for radiative losses from a partially crusted hotter core can be used to constrain eruption rates of single-lobed planetary lava flows by assuming thermal characteristics are similar to terrestrial flows. Eruption rate can be expressed as a function of the area fraction of core exposed, initial core temperature, core temperature when the flow stops advancing, crust thickness, flow thickness, and the density and heat capacity of the lava.
