2013-10-11 14:49:13

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists say they've discovered a new way to look at the life cycle of a supervolcano at a Yellowstone hotspot. University of Oregon researchers said that crystals of zircon from the Snake River Plain helped to solidify evidence of "recycled" super-volcanic magma chambers. This Yellowstone hotspot creates a conveyor belt style of volcanism because of the southwest migration of the North American plate at about 0.8 to 1.6 inches...

Scoria is a term used by geologists to describe an igneous rock containing many gas bubbles, or vesicules. Scoria forms when magma rich in dissolved gases is vented. As the magma encounters lower pressures, the gasses are able to escape and form bubbles. These bubbles are trapped when the magma cools and solidifies. Volcanic cones of scoria can be left behind after eruptions, usually forming mountains with a crater at the summit. An example is Mount Wellington, Auckland in New Zealand....
