Sample text

Typical types of pyroclastic rock are agglomerate, but more commonly tuff. Agglomerate is found very close to the crater or the centre of the volcano and will be formed of large angular fragments, typically crystals, that have been formed at depth and have been ejected. It can include other rock fragments and will tend to be surrounded by ash which has solidified. The solidified ash is essentially tuff. Angular fragments, crystals or other igneous rock fragments, define an agglomerate that has formed close to where the eruption took place because such large fragments do not travel far.

The floor of one of these basins is more than 2 km below sea level. The Dead Sea is perhaps the most well known of these basins. It is 400 m below sea level, with water depths exceeding 300 m in places. Alpine Transform System of New Zealand (Hamblin and Christiansen, 2001). This transform boundary connects two subduction zones. Displacement across the transform fault zone has been determined from matching up distinctive rock types that occur on each side. It is about 480 km. This movement has been largely horizontal over a period of 40 million years.

What do igneous rocks look like? Most igneous rocks are crystalline meaning that the individual grains are fused together as shown in Fig. 4. This is easy to see when the individual grains are large enough to be seen with the naked eye or with a hand lens. In fine-grained varieties the crystalline nature is more difficult to appreciate but there may be other indicators such as gas bubbles (vesicles), in basalt for example, that may aid identification. Some igneous rocks are not crystalline but glassy.
