In every InSights issue, ESNO features two of the dozens of tools, modules, and activities that utilize EarthScope data to benefit a wide variety of users (K–12, university educators, informal programs like museums or after-school programs)
(a) Physics-based conduit model.  (b) Some depth-dependent properties inferred by solving the physics-based conduit model.  As magma ascends and depressurizes, the solid volume fraction increases due to crystallization, in part causing the velocity to change from viscous flow to frictional sliding.
