database

Screen shot 2014-03-05 at 2.27.10 AMi made an enormous database this past year. here are the sample sites. can you identify the three volcanic zones of the andes? the galapagos? the sierra nevada, hawaii, iran, tibet?

Distribution of volcanic products in western Bolivia. Pink = Neogene tuffs, brown = Neogene lavas, red = Quaternary lavas, grey = salt flats. Note Tunupa volcano just north of the salar de Uyuni, the furthest easterly Quaternary stratovolcano on the Altiplano. Soniquera and Uturuncu are the eastern stratovolcanoes furhter south in the Altiplano-Puna region.

Geology doesn’t end at the border but my maps do.

Quaternary lavas from the Andean arc front. SVZ on the left. Four segments of the CVZ in the middle. NVZ on the right. All points are averages values of average centres. That is, each center was averaged into a data point, and then these data points were averaged for each zone. So 50 analyses of Aucanquilcha complex hold equal weight to 3 analyses of a less well-studied centre.
