Cross Scale Modeling of Melt Migration

Presented by: 
Sash Hier-Majumder Royal Holloway, University of London
Tuesday 12th April 2016 - 14:30 to 15:30
INI Seminar Room 1
The migration of melt over length scales of hundreds of kms takes place through grain edge tubules and films with typical dimensions of a few hundred nanometers to a few microns. The volume fraction, shape, and distribution of these tubules and films exert a strong influence on the effective physical properties, anisotropy, and the trajectory of melt migration in the mantle. In this talk, I will outline new techniques for modeling the microstructure in partially molten rocks,their influence on the effective physical properties, and the implications for large scale magma flow.
