Abstract: This review work explains some of the most important techniques to detect the occurrence of magma mixing phenomena in the volcanic rocks by using SEM (scanning electron microscope). In particular, the most useful methods related to the different types of mixing are reviewed: complete mixing (blending) or incomplete mixing (mingling). For blending, backscattered electron images and EDS (energy dispersive spectroscopy) are the most accurate methods: an example taken from a sample of ash of the 2007 St…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
