a1R and a1cL are the longitudinal and transverse parts of bomb A, while d2L and d2cR are respectively the longitudinal and transverse cut parts of bomb D. The white boxes locate the 24 thin sections and the yellow boxes indicate the thin sections chosen for SEM analyses.



Facies definitions

  • HP facies: highly porphyritic, vesiculated regions (vesicularity types 1a and 1b) characterized by microlite-poor glass (Figures 4a, 4c, 4e);
  • HPM facies: highly porphyritic, vesiculated regions (vesicularity types 1b and 1c) characterized by microlite-rich glass (Figures 4f, h, i);
  • HPMd facies: is the HPM facies with deformed vesicles
  • HPD facies: highly porphyritic, vesicle-poor regions (vesicularity type 2) characterized by microlite-rich glass (Figures 4a, c, g);
  • HPDs facies: highly porphyritic, transitional facies between regions poor in vesicles and regions rich in rounded, small vesicles, usually smaller than 0.5 mm in diameter, of vesicularity type 1a, and characterized by microlite-rich glass (Figures 4b, d, f);
  • Mixture: it is the whole thin section with some of the listed facies, without distinction
