Electric Discharge and Surface Formation in Lava?

Unread postby Wedman » Tue Jan 17, 2017 2:24 pm

Last day I watched the video Electric Discharge and Surface Formation by Mr2Tuff2. Watching from 7:53 I came to think about the strange lava formation Dimmuborgir (Wikipedia) close to lake Mývatn in Iceland (see attached image). Dimmuborgir is a circular area with lava pillars and other formations that I've visited three times, most recently in 2015. According to wikipedia the formations were created when a lava lake collapsed. I guess that they think that the pillars are created like underwater lava pillars like these:
Lava pillars (noaa.gov)

I found that hard to understand when I read it so could these formations instead have been formed by electric discharge?

Another type of formations in the Mývatn area are the pseudocraters or rootless cones. Some av them are double rootless cones:
Double rootless cones around Lake Myvatn in Iceland, as analogues to double cones in Athabasca Valles, Mars
These looks much like the crater in a crater at 5:45 in the video above.

The pseudocraters are supposed to have been created by steam exploding through lava. Could these have been formed by electric discharge?

This is close to a rootless cone:
