Volcanic Bomb intrusions and Faults on the eastern coast of Taiwan

On the eastern coast of Taiwan, we examined these large intrusions in the rock, which we interpreted to be bombs expelled by massive volcanic eruptions, estimated to have occurred between 7 and 12 ma. Additionally at this site, we observed very obvious and powerful faults. With a water bottle and my friend Santos as a size comparison, we can see that these bombs approach 1 meter in diameter.
