The DomeHaz database contains over 400 dome-forming episodes, as part of over 200 eruptions, at over 120 volcanoes. Here, you can download a snap-shot, flat view of the larger relational MySQL database as an Excel spreadsheet. Please request group membership to access the database.

The following information was recorded where available: volcano name, composition, start and end date of the dome-forming eruption, the duration of the eruption, the duration of dome growth itself, extrusion rate, eruptive products (i.e. pyroclastic flows, lahars, etc), the date of any associated large explosions, and the relative timing of the large explosion (before, during, or after dome growth).
