The Q(f, depth) conduit profiles for NMF conditions. We present a comparison between an incompressible profile (following Collier et al. 2006) and a visco-elastic profile, accounting also for melt compressibility. The dashed area for f , 1 Hz indicates that both profiles are a close approximation to their corresponding numerical solution only from c. 1 Hz and higher. The addition of compressibility leads to very different profiles than the ones presented in Collier et al. (2006). Here, we present the lower section of the conduit where compressibility has a major role in the damping properties of the magma.
