Abstract [en]

Gravitational deformation strongly influences the structure and eruptive behavior of large volcanoes. Using scaled analog models, we characterize a range of structural architectures produced by volcano sagging and volcano spreading. These arise from the interplay of variable basement rigidity and volcano-basement (de-)coupling. From comparison to volcanoes on Earth (La Reunion and Hawaii) and Mars (Elysium and Olympus Montes), the models highlight a structural continuum in which large volcanoes throughout the Solar System lie.
