Volcanogenic sedimentation in the Lesser Antilles Arc.
Date of Original Version
Of the total of 527 km3 of volcanics produced in the arc in the last 105 yr, over 80% has been deposited as volcanogenic sediments in the adjacent marine basins as ash-fall layers, pyroclastic debris flow deposits and volcanic sands. Over 70% of total volcanogenic sedimentation from the arc is received by the back-arc Grenada Basin W of the arc in the form of sediment gravity flows; c40% of the ash-fall in the Atlantic is dispersed in the sediment. -from Authors
