Abstract In this work we present the results of time series experiments performed by mixing basaltic and rhyolitic melts at high temperature using a device recently developed to trigger chaotic dynamics in a mixing system. The morphology of mixing patterns is quantified at different times by measuring their fractal dimension and a linear relationship is derived between mixing time and morphological complexity. The complexity of mixing patterns is also compared to the degree of homogenization of… CONTINUE READING
