Subaqueous pyroclastic ejecta of basaltic and andesitic cinder cones

Partly consolidated, palagonitized, fine to coarse, scoriaceous altered cinders, bombs, breccia, and minor agglutinate, mostly deposited in subaqueous environment. Commonly with some interlayers and intermixed lacustrine sedimentary rocks. Forms palagonitic tuff and breccia cones and rings (maars) and, in places, palagonitic tuff ridges
