      Volcanic rocks forming volcanic edifices and surrounding volcanic ring plains consisting of volcanic ash, scoria, pumiceous deposits and the coherent volcanic rocks part of lava flows, lava domes or exposed subsurface facies of a core of a volcano such as dykes, sills, laccoliths are all good building materials widely used for construction such Author: Jiaqi Liu, Jiali Liu, Xiaoyu Chen, Wenfeng Guo. An archipelago is a group of islands closely scattered in a body of water. Usually, this body of water is the ocean, but it can also be a lake or river. Most archipelagoes are made of oceanic islands. This means the islands were formed by volcanoes erupting from the ocean floor. An archipelago made up of oceanic islands is called an island arc. Many island arcs were formed over a single “hot.

      The Azores archipelago consists of nine islands that emerge from the Azores Plateau in the Central Northern Atlantic, situated within the triple junction of the American, Eurasian and African lithosphere plates. Subaerial volcanic activity has been well known since the Pliocene and continues today. White Island is an island in the Ross Archipelago of is 28 km (15 nmi) long, protruding through the Ross Ice Shelf immediately east of Black was discovered by the Discovery Expedition (–04) and so named by them because of the mantle of snow which covers it. Some km 2 of shelf ice adjoining the north-west coast of the island has been designated an Antarctic Archipelago: Ross Archipelago.

      The James Ross Island Volcanic Group is a stratigraphic unit of Cenozoic age distributed on James Ross Island and Vega Island of the James Ross Island group, the Tabarin and Trinity peninsulas of Graham Land and surrounding islands in the Prince Gustav and Antarctic sounds.. The volcanic group consists predominantly of alkali basalts with minor hawaiites, benmoreites and mugearites. GEOLOGY AND PETROGRAPHY OF VOLCANIC ROCKS OF THE TRUK ISLANDS, EAST CAROLINE ISLANDS J.
