Summary
Abstract: The geology of White Island was investigated by visits to all major areas of rock outcrops. The geology was described and samples were collected for lab analysis. Xenoliths were also collected and described and a cross section of the crust and mantle that underlies White Island was deduced. Lab analysis was conducted to characterise the geochemistry of the volcanic rocks and was integrated into ... View entire text
