Erupting the magma chamber paradigm

electricity volcano magma chambers lightning

The end of localised magma chambers being the only natural power source for volcano eruptions? Natural electrochemistry processes. The formation, storage and chemical differentiation of magma in the Earth’s crust is of fundamental importance in igneous geology and volcanology. Recent data are challenging the high-melt-fraction ‘magma chamber’ paradigm that has underpinned models of crustal magmatism …

Surprising Mars geology InSight

Mars geology surprise InSight

The NASA InSight Mars mission will be full of surprises for geologists and massive modifications of current theories, but not the abandoning of them although a good geology theory should vaguely predict. A seismometer will measure marsquakes and meteorite strikes, using the waves generated by those events to build a 3-D picture of Mars’ interior. …
