  • Mantle flow and melting underneath oblique and ultraslow mid-ocean ridges 

    Montesi, Laurent G. J.; Behn, Mark D. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-12-25)
    Mid-ocean ridge morphology correlates strongly with spreading rate. As the spreading rate decreases, conductive cooling becomes more important in controlling ridge thermal structure and the axial lithosphere thickens. At ...
  • Temperature and velocity measurements of a rising thermal plume 

    Cagney, Neil; Newsome, William H.; Lithgow-Bertelloni, Carolina; Cotel, Aline; Hart, Stanley R.; Whitehead, John A. (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-03-04)
    The three-dimensional velocity and temperature fields surrounding an isolated thermal plume in a fluid with temperature-dependent viscosity are measured using Particle-Image Velocimetry and thermochromatic liquid crystals, ...
