Planting directly into more silicic ash such as rhyolite is however more problematic, due to nutrient issues such as nitrogen and calcium deficiency (Neild and others, 1998).
Crustal structure and evolution of an explosive silicic volcanic system at Yellowstone National Park.
Some edaphic associations are Chamise series on shallow soils, Leather oak series on shallow serpentinitic soils, Needlegrass grasslands on Vertisols, and Manzanita shrublands on silicic sandstones.
Similar mixed inclusions of vapor and silicate melt have been described in silicic systems.
The silicate MI contained only 3 or 4 wt. % H2O, only one-third of that expected for a silicic melt saturated with a H2O-rich phase at over 600 MPa.
Nutrient concentrations (nitrates, phosphates, and silicic acid) are significantly lower than in other polar areas (see Sakshaug and Holm-Hansen, 1984).
Its main benefit is derived from its high silicic acid content.
Such is the case in both basaltic and some silicic magmas.
