[1] The shapes of volcanic particles reflect numerous eruptive parameters (e.g., magma viscosity, volatile content, and degree of interaction with water) and are useful for understanding fragmentation and transport processes associated with volcanic eruptions. However, quantitative analysis of volcanic particle shapes has proven difficult because of their morphological complexity and variability. Here a newly developed procedure for shape analysis based on fractal geometry is described and… CONTINUE READING
