Multi-Phase Transport controls a number of important processes in the Earth's interior. Unfortunately, most available modelling platforms (and their underlying system of equations) are not well-suited to deal with the MPT nature of geological processes. The aim of this project is to develop a compressible Multi-Phase formulation able to handle the required level of complexity of both turbulent and non-turbulent natural systems. This platform will provide a unique and holistic understanding of key geological processes such as melt generation and migration, core formation, metasomatism, magma-chamber formation, ore generation and emplacement, and secular evolution of planetary bodies.
