- ... In areas surrounding volcanoes, atmospheric agents remove surface layers from the emitted stones that go directly into the air and groundwater. The chemical composition of magmatic stones is currently studied using techniques that do not differentiate between bulk and surface composition. To the best of our knowledge there are no XPS investigations of magmatic stones. Therefore, in this study we r ...
