NEED A DEFINITION. ephra (teph-ra) The general term for airborne volcanic ejecta of any size. Fragmental volcanic products between 0.25 cm to 6.35 cm (0.1 to 2.5 inches) in diameter are called lapilli. Material finer than 0.1 inch is called ash. Fragments larger than about 6.35 cm (2.5 inches) are called blocks if they were ejected as solids, and volcanic bombs if ejected as liquid or semi-solid lava. In a major explosive eruption, most of the pyroclastic debris would consist of lapilli and ash. Volcanic bombs are aerodynamically shaped by their passage through the atmosphere. Cinders or scoria are lapilli- or bomb-size irregular fragments of lava containing abundarnt vesicles or gas cavities. Pumice is a low density cinder riddled with gas vesicles that is light enough to float on water.
