Assessment of the usefulness of lithic clasts from pyroclastic deposits for paleointensity determination

Abstract:

Paleomagnetic and rock magnetic measurements were carried out on lithic clasts found within pyroclastic deposits to assess their potential for paleointensity determinations. The use of multiple lithologies in a single paleointensity determination would provide confidence that the result is not biased by alteration within one lithology. Lithic clasts were sampled from three historically active volcanoes: Láscar in the Chilean Andes, Mt. St. Helens, United States, and Vesuvius, Italy. At Láscar...
