The 2021 Virtual Outstanding Student and PhD candidate Presentation (vOSPP) Award is awarded to Sara Vulpius for the poster/PICO entitled:

Effects on the volatile release from magmatic intrusions (Vulpius, S.; Noack, L.;)

Sara Vulpius is a PhD candidate at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany. The goal of her research project is to simulate volatile cycles on early Earth (mainly H2O and CO2). Together with Prof. Lena Noack, she focuses on the intrusive release of volatiles from the Earth’s interior on the one hand and on the recycling of volatiles back into the mantle on the other hand.

This study focusses on simulating the influence of fractional crystallization on the solubility and the release of H2O and CO2 from magma bodies within the lithosphere. The numerical models demonstrate that volatile release is possible through the entire lithosphere, even at comparatively high pressures and solubilities.
