Abstract

This text aims to bridge the division between studies of modern and ancient volcanic rocks. A sedimentological approach is adopted as the main theme, in order to understand the broad spectrum of volcanic facies types, the processes responsible for their formation, and their significance in terms of depositional setting. After introductory chapters on the facies concept and the physical properties of magmas, the products of volcanism (volcaniclastic rocks and lavas), pyroclastic deposits, and surface reworking are discussed in detail. In the last chapters, modern volcanoes, facies models for ancient volcanic successions, and volcanism and tectonic setting are covered.-R.A.H.
