Figure F14. Core section images annotated with volcanological features for a massive submarine basalt flow (Unit V) from Sections 324-U1347A-13R-7 to 15R-1. The lithologic column on the left shows the upper and lower bounds of the sections (red dashed lines). These core sections exhibit primary magmatic features including folded glassy crusts and vesicular zones. Interflow sediment occurs between the massive flows in Section 324-U1347A-15R-1 and appears to be ~5 m thick in downhole logging measurements.
