13 GALES Developed at INGV Pisa Finite Elements Method Galerkin Weighted Residuals Stabilization: Least Squares (streamwise direction) Discontinuity Capturing (solution gradient direction) Double discretization in space and time Primitive variables (y, p, u, T) C++ programming language Parallel computation (Linux cluster) ~longo/gales/gales.htmlgales.html Accurate, robust, and adaptable Solves from compressible to incompressible flows Suitable for the simulation of the space-time evolution of magmatic systems in a wide domain (from the deep regions of magma chamber to the volcanic crater)

14 MAGMA multiphase, multicomponent separated flow phase- and composition-dependent properties Newtonian to non-newtonian rheology phase changes (volatile exsolution, crystallization) multicomponent gas-liquid reactions (H 2 O, CO 2, S, ) kinetics of phase change wide range of flow regimes (incompressible to compressible, low-to-high-re, ) Red: accounted for Black: future implementations

15 Oblate chamber Evolution of composition

16 Physical properties at t = 7h 45' Upper chamber: Composition: 100 wt% -> ~70 wt% phonolite Density: kg/m 3 -> ~ kg/m 3 Gas content: 6-5 vol% -> ~8-6 vol% gas ~1 km 130 m/h v max ~1 m/s Mass changes (relative): upper chamber bottom chamber v max ~ 0.1 m/s

17 Prolate chamber Evolution of composition Slower convection/mixing lower density contrast larger friction in the chamber

18 Upper chamber ~ 8 hours bars 0 bars overpressure bars -0.2 bars -0.4 bars -0.3 bars overpressure Lower chamber +1 bar

19 ~ 8 hours overpressure prolate oblate Chamber top overpressure prolate oblate Chamber middle overpressure prolate oblate Chamber bottom

20 Mass of shoshonitic magma entering the shallow chamber oblate prolate

21 Conclusions The buoyant magma invading the shallow chamber soon looses its identity as a separate component (in optimum agreement with the observations) The geometry of the shallow chamber has large effects on the dynamics of magma refilling and mixing: Oblate: faster / more efficient Prolate: slower / less efficient The pressure evolves in a complex way, overall decreasing in the shallow chamber, and increasing in the deep chamber At least in the oblate chamber case, the pressure decrease in the shallow system is partially recovered over the range of ~10 hours, letting however a residual negative overpressure of the order of a few tenths of a bar
