Patrick J. McGovern, M. Elise Rumpf and James R. Zimbelman The influence of lithospheric flexure on magma ascent at large volcanoes on Venus Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets 118

Version of Record online: 27 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/2013JE004455

Key Points

  • Flexural stresses influence volcano shape by controlling magma ascent
  • Thick lithospheres can support conical volcanic edifices
  • Flexure on thin lithosphere tends to produce annular edifices (coronae)
