January 2, 2023

The volcanism plays an important part in the mass exchange circle to bring matter from the core of the planet to the atmosphere.

Thus, it is a possible method to research the change of elements abundance in atmosphere by modeling the process of volatiles from volcanism get through and mix in atmosphere, which is the focused point of this article.

This article penetrates from the generation of volatiles, talks about the species, mass, and mole fractions of different typical elements in magma. Then a diffusion progress model of volatiles was built to quantify the abundance of elements with altitude. And the quantitative models of element abundance at different heights are obtained.
