3-H. LAVA FLOWS [note: pillow session has been combined with broader session on all lava flows] Processes of pillow formation and constraints for eruption conditions and eruption environments Chris Hamilton, Ben Edwards* (edwardsb@dickinson.edu), Meagen Pollock, Alex Nichols Pillow lavas are one of the most common lava types on Earth, and are critical paleoenvironmental indicators for eruptions that have produced lava flows interacting with water. Deposits of pillow lava range in age from Archean to Modern day, and can be formed over a moderately broad range of lava compositions (basanite to trachyte). We encourage contributions from marine and terrestrial studies of pillow lava, especially studies that compare eruption processes in multiple types of environments, studies of pillow morphologies, internal characteristics, and use for documenting eruption environments.

3-K. VOLCANO-ICE INTERACTIONS AND PLANETARY VOLCANISM Ian Skilling* (iskillin@glam.ac.uk), Rosaly Lopes, Christian Huggel, David McGarvie, Hugh Tuffen This session encompasses all aspects of planetary volcanism, including cryovolcanism in the outer solar system, with an emphasis on volcano-ice interaction on Earth and Mars. We are particularly interested in contributions that address any of the following: 1) Interactions between volcanic systems and ice on Earth including physical processes that control eruption mechanisms, palaeo-ice thickness reconstructions, geochemical studies of magma evolution and degassing, glaciological studies of geothermal impacts on ice sheets, volcano-ice interactions in recent eruptions, hazard mitigation at ice-covered volcanoes and the physical processes that control eruption mechanisms, as recorded in erupted deposits or simulated in models. 2) New results from space missions, cryovolcanism as a volcanic process, geophysics of icy satellites of the outer Solar System, magma-ice interaction on Mars, volcanism as thermal and chemical energy sources for potential life, and volcanism and volcanic products as evidence of mantle composition

Session V033 - Physical volcanology of eruptions involving water

"Water in oceans, glaciers, lakes, streams and aquifers lies in the path of magma ascending to eruption over the great majority of Earth, and on some other planets as well. This session invites contributions of all aspects of magma's interaction with water en route to the surface and during eruption."

We anticipate contributions on submarine volcanism, volcanism in lakes, phreatomagmatic eruptions, subglacial volcanism, subsurface interactions of dikes and conduits with country rock groundwater.

The session is co-sponsored with Earth and Planetary Surface Processes, Natural Hazards, and Planetary Sciences.
