Volcanic Islands Summary

The book includes one of the earliest accounts of the process of magmatic differentiation. While observing a basaltic lava flow in the Galápagos Islands, Darwin observed that “crystals sink from their weight” and that this “throws light on the separation of the high silica versus low silica series of rocks.” This was the first proposal of the fractional crystallization hypothesis of magma differentiation that was further developed and demonstrated in the 20th century.
