Presentation Transcript


1. Understanding the Process of Volcanism is Important for Calculating the Probability of Future Volcanism at Yucca Mountain Eugene Smith [email protected] Deborah Keenan UNLV and Geoscience Consultants

2. Main Point It is important to understand the process of volcanism before calculating the probability of future events.

3. Models of Volcanism Traditional model focuses on the Yucca Mt area, assumes lithospheric mantle melting and implies waning volcanism Deep melting model focuses on the Lunar Crater-Death Valley belt and implies that a new peak of volcanism is possible.

4. Traditional Model Focus is on Yucca Mt area
