Cupaello is responsible for a 750-m-long lava flow that covers layers of pyroclastic material, including ash, breccias, lapilli, and scoria. These products were channelized and accumulated downslope of the volcanic edifice (Stoppa and Cundari, 1995). These pyroclastics are carbonatitic in composition, and yielded an Ar/Ar age of 639 ka (Peccerillo, 2005). However, Stoppa and Cundari (1995) list a date of about 491 +/- 3 ka. Structures within the pyroclastic layers indicate that the tuff could still deform plastically when covered by the lava, suggesting that both the explosive and effusive phases were part of the same eruption (Stoppa and Cundari, 1995).

Stop Russia's Agression - Support Ukraine
Significant parts of this website use brilliant open-source software developed by Ukrainians. Russia's unprovoked war has killed tens of thousands, displaced millions, and the beautiful country of Ukraine is being destroyed. We cannot be silent even if the topic of this website has nothing to do with politics.
If you like to support Ukraine from abroad:
Ukrainians recommend the Come Back Alive charity. For other options, see StandWithUkraine.
