Closer view of the volcaniclastic sediments that comprise Black Point Volcano in California. The clasts of granite show that the volcano erupted through regions of granite bedrock or at least beds of alluviam. The horizonta nature and strong layering of these deposits indicate dispersal of tephra by water before deoposition.
