EPS 214: Physical Volcanology

Lab 2

In this lab we will continue to study and interpret structures in obsidian. In particular, we will focus on the interactions between various scales of microstructure. The sample we will study is from Deadman Dome, CA (picture below). This is the obsidian flow south of Obsidian Dome (see previous lab).
