    Flat/Prospector Pass Caldera Complex or buried plutons) and circulating ground water may constitute yet to be identified geothermal resources or may have formed mineralized areas within fossil geothermal systems. Figure 3 shows the spatial relationship of Yucca Mountain to major calderas and caldera complexes in the southwestern Nevada volcanic. Smith () shows a direct correlation between caldera area and the volume of products expelled during the caldera-forming eruption (Fig. ). Where caldera eruptions produce ash flows of differentiated products, Smith and Shaw (, ) and Smith () show that the volume of these products is ~10% of the volume of the underlying magma.

    The > km 3 Peach Spring Tuff (PST), erupted at Ma from the Silver Creek caldera in the southern Black Mountains volcanic center (SBMVC) of western Arizona, is the only supereruption‐scale ignimbrite in the northern Colorado River Extensional Corridor. The SBMVC contains pre‐ and post‐caldera volcanic rocks and caldera‐related.

    During the period to , the large number of papers, books, and monographs published on the petrology and geochemistry of igneous rocks reflects the vitality and continued growth of this central earth science discipline. While an attempt has been made to prepare a reasonably complete bibliography, the accompanying text, of necessity, reflects a subjective selection of . Questa caldera, a major collapse structure associated with eruptions of large-volume ash-flow tuffs. The Amalia Tuff is the major outflow sheet known to have been erupted from the Questa caldera. The host rocks contain disseminated molybdenite grains and are cut by numerous, crisscrossing veins, veinlets, and cracks.

In conjunction with integrated mapping of the Oligocene central San Juan caldera cluster, southwestern Colorado (USGS I-Mapin press), all modern chemical analyses of volcanic rocks for this area determined in laboratories of the U.S.

Geological Survey have been re-evaluated in terms of the stratigraphic sequence as presently understood. The Fish Canyon Tuff is one of the largest currently recognized ash-flow tuffs (> km 3).

It is a crystal-rich quartz latite containing about 40 per cent phenocrysts of plagioclase, sanidine, biotite, hornblende, quartz, magnetite, sphene, and ilmenite. Pyrrhotite occurs as inclusions in magnetite, sphene, and by: A caldera is a large cauldron-like hollow that forms shortly after the emptying of a magma chamber/reservoir in a volcanic eruption.

When large volumes of magma are erupted over a short time, structural support for the rock above the magma chamber is lost. The ground surface then collapses downward into the emptied or partially emptied magma chamber, leaving a massive.

The western Nevada volcanic field is the western third of a belt of calderas through Nevada and western Utah. Twenty-three calderas and their caldera-forming tuffs are reasonably well identified in the western Nevada volcanic field, and the presence of at least another 14 areally extensive, apparently voluminous ash-flow tuffs whose sources are unknown suggests a similar number Cited by: The Pagosa Peak Dacite is an unusual pyroclastic deposit that immediately predated eruption of the enormous Fish Canyon Tuff (~ km3) from the La Garita caldera at 28 Ma.

The Pagosa Peak Dacite is thick (to 1 km), voluminous (> km3), and has a high aspect ratio () similar to those of silicic lava flows.

It contains a high proportion (%) of juvenile clasts (to m). The Fish Canyon Tuff, erupted from the La Garita caldera, is the second and largest of eight major ash-flow sheets erupted from the productive central San Juan caldera cluster, which generated approximately km 3 of silicic deposits through eight caldera-related eruptions during Cited by: The Caetano Tuff in north-central Nevada is one of the volumetrically largest manifestations of vigorous mid-Tertiary (ca.

Thus, the presence of ash flows, central collapsed caldera and volcanic features associated with late-stage effusive and eruptive phases at CBVC, as observed from the present and previous studies, makes it a close analog of terrestrial ash flow caldera associated with silicic magmatism.
