Fluidization pipes in volcaniclastic mass flows, Volcan Hudson, Southern Chile

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The presence of fluidization pipes within pyroclastic sediments has been proposed as a criterion for differentiating these volcaniclastic deposits from those of epiclastic mass flows. Observations of pipe structures within low‐temperature epiclastic mudflows produced by the 1971 eruption of Volcan Hudson, Southern Chile, demonstrate that this assumption is invalid and that the presence of pipes may only be utilized to interpret the precise mechanics of the fluidization process itself.
