Pour No. 16 on August 26, 2011 using the #700 gas fired tilt furnace operated by the SU Sculpture. The 500lb of melted basalt was poured down a 5 degree slope which transitioned to a 30 degree slope and back to 5 degrees. The lava flow eroded the dry sand, exposing the wet substrate on the 30 degree slope, thus the bubbles. Though interesting, the bubbles presence was not necessary desirable as they obscured the underlying flow.
The SU Lava Project is a joint research venture between SU Earth Sciences and SU Sculpture. For further information please contact Prof. Robert Wysocki, SU Sculpture at email@example.com or Dr. Jeffrey Karson, SU Earth Sciences at firstname.lastname@example.org
