English term or phrase:high-density body
Does anyone know whether there's a technical term for "high-density body" in French? As the context (see below) shows, high-density bodies are regions in the volcanic edifice where the density of the rock is very high. I'd suggest "régions de roches à haute densité", but I'm not sure whether this is good French.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
