    the stability of magma reservoirs we developed new models to test 1 the role of a mechanically layered lithosphere 2 the role of extensional stresses and 3 the ellipticity of magmatic reservoirs on the formation of these radial dike systems To explore these scenarios we used the COMSOL Multiphysics finite element package allowing us to develop 1 2D axisymmetric elastic models made of mantle and crustal components 2 3D elastic models in which an extensional stress was applied and 3 elliptical magmatic reservoirs embedded within 2D axisymmetric elastoplastic models Different tectonic environments were studied lithostatic upward flexure due to uplift consistent with a plume derived origin and downward flexure due to the load of a volcanic edifice Mechanical layering within the lithosphere impacts the location of failure along a magmatic reservoir and the type of magmatic intrusions We observe that shallow magma reservoirs in an upward flexure environment tend to produce radial dikes Regional Extensional stresses in 3D tend to focus the location of failure along the magma reservoir therefore limiting the formation of continuous fanning pattern Finally the elliptical shape of a magma reservoir favors continued expansion and increasing ellipticity because failure at the midsection requires less overpressure as the ellipticity of the reservoir increases These results highlight new physical and structural controls on the formation of radial dike systems on Venus Specifically we can infer 1 potential crust mantle ratios within the Venusian lithosphere 2 the extensional stress regime linked to the formation of specific radial dike systems and 3 the mechanisms of magma chamber growth linked to the formation of calderae observed in conjunction with radial dike systems on Venus Friday February 26 2016 Lecture Hall 3 30 PM Peter James Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University Crustal structure of the South Pole Aitken Basin from
