So I was recently thinking about advanced Nature Releases and the combinations that make them up. There are a few canon (and the few filler) releases that don't specify their parent elements. But while I was thinking, I realized a much more accurate way to think about the combinations.

Instead of simply saying two elements mix equally to form an advanced nature, it is more likely that one element serves as the base and the other as a supplement. The second element adds onto the first to enhance it (making it advanced). For example, Water can enhance Earth to form one nature, or Earth can enhance Water to form a completely different nature.

The below tables show the different combinations, the advanced nature they create, and an explanation of why that combination works. This is only done for the canon or canon filler advanced natures, and is not intended to incorporate fanmade nature releases into the mix.

Nature Icon Mud

Mud

While mud is earth with water added, the water is controlling the mixture. Its amount changes the viscosity (thickness) of the mud.

Nature Icon Wind

Nature Icon Ice

Ice

Ice is just a frozen state of water. Wind is involved to lower the temperature of the water to freeze it.

Nature Icon Lightning

Nature Icon Fire

Nature Icon Boil

Boil

Steam is just a gaseous state of water. Fire is involved to raise the temperature of the water to evaporate it quickly.

Nature Icon Crystal

Crystal

Crystal is a mineral substance made in the earth. It forms when certain minerals react with oxygen.

Nature Icon Steel

Steel

Steel is forged iron. Iron is a metal in the earth. Fire is involved to serve as the forging process.

Nature Icon Water

Nature Icon Wood

Wood

Wood is a solid-state substance that grows in the earth. Water serves as an energy/food source for the growth. Thus, the water added to earth can mimic this process.

Nature Icon Dark

Dark

The wind serves as a vortex to absorb other ninjutsu. The fire then serves to burn it down, assimilating it into a blast that can be sent back. When sent back, a flame-like residue of chakra was shown coating the area it struck.

Nature Icon Magnet

Magnet

Some may think magnet should be a combination of earth and lightning. However, magnetism is a force made when electrons move in a specific direction. An electric current can force this to happen, but from an elemental standpoint, wind and earth can give a similar effect. The wind acts as the main source of the current. The earth then serves to buffet the particles around into a uniform direction, creating a magnetic force.

Nature Icon Storm

Storm

Storm is shown to be lightning that move in a more fluid-like way. Water serves to grant this fluidity. It has also been shown as standard storm clouds that produce lightning. The water serves as the catalyst for the cloud production.

Nature Icon Wind

Nature Icon Swift

Swift

Swift Release allows the body to move much quicker than normally possible. Lightning heightens the reactions of the body, while wind serves as a current for the body to travel on.

Nature Icon Earth

Nature Icon Lava

Lava

Lava is when high heat and pressure turns rock into a molten state. However, Lava Release tends to treat it as more of a corrosive than molten substance. Due to this, fire serves as the base, while earth is added to give some structure.

Nature Icon Wind

Nature Icon Scorch

Scorch

Wind amplifies the fire, making it burn hot enough to evaporate the water in a person's body.

Nature Icon Lightning

Nature Icon Explosion

Explosion*

An explosion is a rapid release of energy at a high heat and volume. Fire is a combustion reaction that can be propagated to an explosive level with the extra energy of lightning.

Note: Explosion Release is only suggested as being earth and lightning. It has not been canonically confirmed. Deidara’s earth-based clay must be infused with explosion chakra, thus it is unlikely that earth is actually a component of the explosion itself. Deidara can also run out of clay, implying he may not actually have earth as a nature to create more on the spot. Sasuke's lightning worked by nullifying the clay vessel the explosion was mixed into, thereby diffusing the explosion.
