Poster 104: Elliott Gray – Review on Magma Mixing Processes and Future Applications to Hawaiian Samples

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Sarah Lambart

Heavily differentiated volcanic samples collected from Hawaii and Southern Utah, closely resemble samples found in the Canary islands. These samples were all compared using petrographic analysis using a cross polarized microscope. Samples clearly show a sharp visual contact between the mafic and felsic compositions of rock. SEM and EMPA analysis are required to determine if magma mixing is strictly mechanical or includes diffusion.
