Numerical modeling of lava flow cooling applied to the 1997 Okmok eruption : Approach and analysis

  title={Numerical modeling of lava flow cooling applied to the 1997 Okmok eruption : Approach and analysis},
  author={Matthew R. Patrick and Jonathan Dehn and K W Dean},
[1] Throughout February and March of 1997 Okmok Volcano, in the eastern Aleutian Islands of Alaska, erupted a 6 km long lava flow of basaltic ’a’a within its caldera. A numerical model for lava flow cooling was developed and applied to the flow to better understand the nature of its cooling. Radiation and convection from the surface, as well as conduction to the ground, were used to transport the flow’s heat to its surroundings in the model. Internally, a conduction-only approach moved heat… CONTINUE READING
