Ignimbrite architecture: constraints on current dynamics

Published:
January 01, 2002

Abstract

This chapter explores how ignimbrite architectures and lithofacies associations can be used to infer how flow-boundary zones of pyroclastic density currents vary with time, downcurrent, laterally and with topography. The approach hopefully will be developed further so deposits can be used more precisely to constrain the dynamics of pyroclastic density currents.
