Crystallization Stages of the BishopTuff Magma Body Recorded in Crystal Textures in Pumice Clasts

  title={Crystallization Stages of the BishopTuff Magma Body Recorded in Crystal Textures in Pumice Clasts},
  author={Ayla S. Pamukcu and Guilherme A. R. Gualda and Alfred T. Anderson},
The BishopTuff is a giant silicic ignimbrite erupted at 0·76Ma in eastern California, USA. Five pumice clasts from the late-erupted Bishop Tuff (Aeolian Buttes) were studied in an effort to better understand the preand syn-eruptive history of the Bishop magma body and place constraints on the timescales of its existence. This study complements and expands on a previous study that focused on early-erupted BishopTuff pumice clasts. Bulk densities of pumice clasts were measured using an immersion… CONTINUE READING
