Assessment of the usefulness of lithic clasts from pyroclastic deposits for paleointensity determination

Paterson, Greig A; Roberts, Andrew P.; Muxworthy, Adrian R; Niocaill, Conall Mac

Description

Paleomagnetic and rock magnetic measurements were carried out on lithic clasts found within pyroclastic deposits to assess their potential for paleointensity determinations. The use of multiple lithologies in a single paleointensity determination would provide confidence that the result is not biased by alteration within one lithology. Lithic clasts were sampled from three historically active volcanoes: Láscar in the Chilean Andes, Mt. St. Helens, United States, and Vesuvius, Italy. At Láscar,...[Show more]
