Combining the use of volatile phase expansion and modelling using CONFLOW, the plausibility of deep submarine pyroclastic volcanism becomes apparent.
The CONFLOW and volume expansion models presented in this paper only take the pure water system into consideration.
Modelling of the Quizapu Rhyolite using CONFLOW shows that explosive silicic eruptions are capable of occurring in the deep submarine environment (i.
The CONFLOW model is based on a series of equations of conservation of mass, momentum, and energy.
In the CONFLOW model, the flow of magma and exsolved [H.
In CONFLOW, melt composition, conduit diameter and length, and the initial temperature and pressure at the base of the conduit are specified.
