Textural analysis of magmatic enclaves from the Kameni Islands, Santorini, Greece

Abstract:

The Kameni Islands have been the focus of historic volcanic activity on Santorini, Greece. The islands comprise a series of dacite lavas, the erupted compositions of which have remained approximately constant for the last ∼2200 years. The dacite lava flows of Nea Kameni contain a variety of mafic enclaves, distinguished by differences in texture, composition and mechanical behaviour. The mafic enclaves represent chilled fragments of mafic magma that crystallised rapidly on contact with the co...
