The compositional zonation within an ash-flow tuff, specifically a compound cooling unit within the southwestern Nevada volcanic field, has been studied. Varying relative amounts of ferric/ferrous oxide and hydroxide concentrations aid in detecting and identifying slight compositional changes within ash-flow tuffs.
