In a new paper, I show that, on basalts, flowpaths, hydographs, and landscapes coevolve over a million years or more.
In the crater of Erte Ale, we can see processes that take tens of miliions of years on a global scale happening in just a few hours.
While the deep, geothermal water of Yellowstone is sexy and merits both the tourist and scientific attention given to it, there’s a largely untold story in the shallow groundwater, where huge volumes of cold water may advect more heat than the hydrothermal features. A paper by Gardner et al. (2010) begins to shed light on this side of the story.
It may have grounded much of Europe’s air traffic, but at least Eyjafjallajoekull’s eruption has a pleasing aesthetic effect on the atmosphere.
My first day at the Geological Society of America conference included lots of beautiful volcano and river photos…and good wine. All in the name of basalt.
