Recent developments in sedimentology, diagenesis, and hydrocarbon exploration suggest that the recognition and interpretation of volcaniclastic sediments can significantly influence exploration methods, and the prediction of reservoir geometry and quality in volcaniclastic sequences.

Volcaniclastic sediments are characterized by predictable changes in composition, texture, geometry and distribution, which can be used during both geologic and seismic interpretation. Interpretations based on volcaniclastic sediments help to better define the volcano-tectonic and paleogeographic setting that controls the deposition of associated siliciclastic and/or carbonate reservoirs. Volcaniclastics are also important to an understanding of the thermal history of a sedimentary basin and its deposits, and...
