... on conjugate sides of a crack are not aligned, as would be expected if the tubules formed as a result of dissolution along pre-existing weaknesses in the glass ( e.g. , Banerjee & Muehlenbachs 2003 , Furnes et al. 2007 , Staudigel et al. 2006 , 2008a ). Polished thin sections...

...) sorting of 1.49 (poor; Table S4 [see footnote 1 ]). Volcanic rock fragments are the dominant framework component ( Figs. 6A and 6B ) and vary in composition from abundant felsic and intermediate varieties ( Fig. 6D ), including pumice and bubble-wall glass shards ( Fig. 6C ), to less common mafic...

... (M1v–M5v), each capped by thin silicified sedimentary units, M1c–M5c ( Byerly, 1999 ). North of the Inyoka fault, the Onverwacht Group includes only the Weltevreden Formation, a 2+-km-thick section of komatiitic tuffs, flow rocks, and minor black cherts ( Lowe and Byerly, 1999 ). Sedimentary rocks...

... of fine to coarse volcanic ash, typically with unaltered glass shards. Deposition of those sediments occurred predominantly by settling of suspended mud and air-fall tephra. We correlate such deposits along the Kumano transect with units that previous investigators along the Muroto and Ashizuri transects...

.... A thin unit of clast-supported conglomerate, correlated with the base of the Oligocene? Skyu-Chilling Formation (Indus Group) unconformably overlies the mainly volcaniclastic sedimentary rocks of unit (i) (Fig. 8 ; central area of map). (iii) Block-in-matrix mélange. Blocks of pillow lava, lava...

... observed in the rhyodacites would require extensive alteration in a regime of high water/rock ratios. However, this is ruled out by the petrographical characteristics of rhyodacites, for example, preservation of glass shards and delicate fiamme structures (Troll, Donaldson & Emeleus, 2004...
