  1. 1. The dynamic emplacement of felsic magma in the upper crust

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tobias Mattsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; laccolith; cryptodome; magma emplacement; magma flow; magma rheology; granite; rhyolite; pluton; AMS; XCT; thermobarometry; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot mineralogi; petrologi och tektonik; Earth Science with specialization in Mineral Chemistry; Petrology and Tectonics;

    Abstract : Felsic magma intrudes earth’s upper crust through a variety of mechanisms. Magma intrusion growth and shape have mainly been explained in terms of host rock properties and intrusion depth, while considering the magma as an overpressurised fluid. READ MORE

  2. 2. Deformation and fluid-flow in magma-poor margins : A study of the Tasna Ocean-Continent transition, SE Switzerland

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för geologi och geokemi

    Author : Anna Engström; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Magma-poor margins; Deformation; Fluid-flow; Serpentinization; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : In this study, interaction between fluids and deformation during the final stages of magma-poor rifting was investigated. The Tasna Ocean-Continent transition, located in the Swiss Alps, was studied and a large data set was obtained from profiles oriented perpendicular to two detachment faults. READ MORE

  3. 3. Magnetic properties of Neogene regional dikes from east Iceland with special reference to magma flow

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Per Eriksson; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Natural sciences - Earth sciences; Naturvetenskap - Geovetenskap; Tillämpad geofysik; Applied Geophysics;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with rock magnetic measurements on Neogene dikes from the eastern fjords of Iceland. A vast amount of dikes generally striking north-north-east occur as swarms in the glacially eroded lava pile. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dynamic Modelling of Physical Processes in Magmatic Systems: Dyke Emplacement and Flow-Induced Crystal Rotations

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Rémi Vachon; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Numerical solutions; elasticity and anelesticity; fracturing; magmatic plumbing system; sheet-like intrusions; rheology of the crust; physics of magma; solid mechanics; fluid flow; crystal rotation;

    Abstract : The main motivation for this thesis is to develop and improve numerical tools and methods that help further our comprehension of the volcanic plumbing system and its dynamics.The commonly used standard elastic model predicts solutions of dyke shape, thickness, over-pressure and fracturing criteria that do not always fit natural observations.

  5. 5. Magnetic anisotropy and paleomagnetism of precambrian rocks in the Fennoscandian shield

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Håkan Johannes Mattsson; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Applied Geophysics; Tillämpad geofysik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents three applications of the anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) technique, dealing with tectonic and magmatic flow fabrics of Proterozoic igneous rocks in the central and northern parts of the Fennoscandian Shield. Paleomagnetic measurements were performed in attempts to put the different rock units into a geological and plate tectonic context. READ MORE
