New publication: Geochemistry of some Quaternary lavas from the Aleutian Arc and Mt. Wrangell


Chris Nye samples rocks at Augustine, 2005
This publication contains previously unpublished geochemical analyses or re-analyses of lavas, magmatic inclusions, and a few gabbroic cumulate inclusions from Alaska volcanoes (Akutan, Augustine, Buzzard Creek, Dana, Douglas, Fourpeaked, Frosty, Great Sitkin, Iliamna, Kaguyak, Kiska, Okmok, Prindle Cone, Recheshnoi, Redoubt, Spurr, Ukinrek Maars, Vsevidof, Westdahl, Wrangell) collected by the authors and others over the past 35 years. It provides substantial data sets for three volcanoes (Vsevidof, Westdahl, and Douglas) for which little or no published data exist. All analyses were made by the GeoAnalytical laboratory at Washington State University in Pullman, WA. The ICP/MS data have been reduced using the 2006 calibration to ensure internal consistency of the data set despite the twenty-year span over which the analyses were made. Files can be downloaded from the DGGS website.
