A base surge, first identified at the Bikini thermonuclear undersea explosion, is a ring-shaped basal cloud that sweeps outward as a density flow from the base of a vertical explosion column. Base surges are also common in shallow underground test explosions and are formed by expanding gases which first vent vertically and then with continued expansion rush over the crater lip (represented by
eastern trend of the volcanic belt hosting the old Northern Empire gold mine. The belt is composed of a complex sequence of fine-grained volcanic tuffs, agglomerates, basalts, and gabbroic rocks with lesser cherty iron formations, ankeritic exhalite and slatey tuffs. Clastic sedimentary rocks flank the volcanic sequence on both the north and south.
Multiple soft sediment deformation features from bed-scale to basin-scale are well preserved within the Jurassic Carmel Formation of Southern Utah. Field mapping reveals thousands of small-scale clastic injectite pipes (10 cm to 10 m diameter, up to 20 m tall) in extremely high densities (up to 500+ pipes per 0.075 square kilometers). The pipes weather out in positive relief from the
4. Results 4.1. Description of Clastic Dykes. Bulge clastic dykes of dark greyish medium grained carbonate clastic rock occur on top of surfaces in Nfaitok (Figure 3(a)) and a light grayish medium grained clastic rock at the surfaces in Egbekaw (Figure 3(b)).Locally, they rise 6–10 cm above the bedding planes of the bed-rocks and have a thickness of 11–15 cm.
Dyke Formation consists almost entirely of mafic volcanic rocks, while the Gold Range Formation is largely made up of interbedded clastic rocks. The Pamlico Formation of Oldow (1977, p. 22,3) is also a former member of the Excelsior; it consists of interbedded volcanogenic and carbonate rocks in the Garfield Hills, Mineral County.
Well-cemented clastic rocks and crystalline rocks have a brittle behaviour, thus they may tend to split. In addition, fractures can be enlarged by dissolution, particularly in carbonate rocks. The best agreement between computed and measured thermal conductivity of mudstone, packstone, dolostone and dacite samples is thus obtained for a more

Stratification, the layering that occurs in most sedimentary rocks and in those igneous rocks formed at the Earth’s surface, as from lava flows and volcanic fragmental deposits. The layers range from several millimetres to many metres in thickness and vary greatly in shape. Strata may range from
Volcaniclastics are geologic materials composed of broken fragments of volcanic rock. These encompass all clastic volcanic materials, regardless of what process fragmented the rock, how it was subsequently transported, what environment it was deposited in, or whether nonvolcanic material is mingled with the volcanic …
direction, specifically found in pre-Tertiary rocks. The second structural pattern has an E-W direction that involves a lot of Tertiary rock. The third pattern is north-south (N-S) trending direction and is considered as the pattern [10,22]. In addition, Eocene to Miocene volcanic and clastic rocks latest were also found in Karangsambung .
The North Shore Volcanic Group does not necessarily provide a unique source for the clastic material, as similar material may exist within the Keweenawan volcanic rocks of the Osler Group in Canada (fig. 1), but a likely source present in the direction indicated as the source by other criteria is helpful.
by Feth (1951) to be a volcanic neck. The identification of the peak as a neck is of significance to the geology of this area. It might well have been the source from which much of the volcanic rocks were derived. The purpose of this study was to map the geology of the mountain and to determine whether or not it actually is a volcanic neck.
reversed polarity; stipple, volcanic and interflow clastic rocks with normal polarity. NORTHWESTERN WISCONSIN - NORTHEASTERN MINNESOTA ISLE ROYALE and Michigan, the polarity change from re versed to normal coincides with a stratigraph ic break marked by the presence of clastic rocks (Halls, 1974; Hubbard, 1975) .

Volcanic rocks are developed in most of the petroliferous basins in China with relatively widespread distributions and large thicknesses. The reservoirs were formed by three processes: volcanism, diagenesis, and tectonics. Based on their origins, volcanic reservoirs can be divided into four types: lava, pyroclastic, dissolved, and fractured reservoirs (Table 15.9).
porosity of crystallized plutonic rock is very low, and groundwater flows horizontal and vertical fractures with low velocity. The clastic sedimentary rock unit has weak development of primary pores due to a high degree of solidification by diagenesis. The groundwater forms part of an old associated water body. The non-porous volcanic rock unit
A dike or dyke, in geological usage, is a sheet of rock that is formed in a fracture of a pre-existing rock body. Dikes can be either magmatic or sedimentary in origin. Magmatic dikes form when magma flows into a crack then solidifies as a sheet intrusion, either cutting across layers of rock or through a contiguous mass of rock. Clastic dikes are formed when sediment fills a pre-existing crack.
sequence of felsic and intermediate volcanic rocks, mostly pyro clastic, that interfingers to the west with metabasalts; this sequence has been named the Newton Lake Formation. This unit, which may be continuous with rocks to the east included by Gruner (1941) in the Knife Lake Group, consists of at least 8,000 feet of strata, in
Sedimentary dikes or clastic dikes are vertical bodies of sedimentary rock that cut off other rock layers. They can form in two ways: When a shallow unconsolidated sediment is composed of alternating coarse grained andimpermeable clay layers the fluid pressure inside the coarser layers may reach a critical value due to lithostatic overburden.
Pyroclastic texture results from explosive volcanic eruptions and the resulting rock is composed of a mixture of preexisting igneous rock, mineral grains, and ash particles. These three rock textures may be the most permeable of the igneous rock types, yielding zones of groundwater flow and may be the most susceptible to chemical weathering.
