AiS Challenge Team Abstract

Team Number: 080

School Name: Santa Fe High

Area of Science: Earth Sciences

Project Title: Computation of Compounding Pressure in a Magma Dome



This project will model the increased pressure inside a magma dome to predict a potential volcanic eruption. Pressure build up and its subsequent release mechanism is valuable in predicting the potential dangers to an environment. The variables will be temperature, flow patterns, strata configurations and depth of flow among others. Higher math will be used to model pressure variations. Computers will be used for calculations and analysis as well as to visually model this build up.
