Workshop on the Impacts associated with the primary fallout of volcanic ash and subsequent aeolian remobilisation, Consensual Document
19 May 2020 | Publications | Contributor(s): Lucia Dominguez, Costanza Bonadonna, Donaldo Bran
The inherent complexity associated with volcanic eruptions and their relationship with societies requires innovative strategies about how we assess and manage risk. The 2011 Cordón Caulle eruption (2011-CC) demonstrated the additional complexity associated with secondary hazards and...
Workshop on Wind-remobilisation processes of volcanic ash, Consensual Document
20 Feb 2020 | Publications | Contributor(s): Costanza Bonadonna, Paul A Jarvis, Lucia Dominguez, Corine Frischknecht, Pablo Forte, Donaldo Bran, Rigoberto Aguilar, Frances Beckett, Manuela Elissondo, Jack Gillies, ulrich kueppers, Jonathan Merrison, Nick Varley, Kristi L Wallace
Explosive volcanic eruptions can eject large quantities of tephra into the atmosphere that can be dispersed and deposited over wide areas. Whilst the hazardous consequences of primary tephra fallout are well known, subsequent remobilisation of ash by aeolian processes can continue to present an...

An international expert community of volcano observatories, academic scientists, volcanic ash advisory centres and representatives of aviation regulators, engine manufacturers and airlines met in Geneva on 18-20 November 2013 to discuss progress on ash dispersal forecasting and produce a roadmap...
Eruption data for ash-cloud model validation
04 Apr 2013 | *Data Sets/Collections | Contributor(s): Larry Garver Mastin, Costanza Bonadonna, Arnau Folch, peter webley, barbara stunder, Michael Pavolonis
This is a collection of data, references, and links to data on well-documented eruptions whose observations can be used to validate ash-cloud transport models. Data include, among other things, plume height, duration, erupted volume, satellite observations, numerical wind fields, and grain-size...
Volcanic clouds observed by the A-Train satellite constellation
12 Mar 2012 | *Data Sets/Collections | Contributor(s): Simon Carn
A collection of images showing volcanic eruption clouds detected by NASA's A-Train satellite constellation, which includes the Aqua, CALIPSO, CloudSat and Aura satellites. These examples demonstrate the unique ability of the A-Train to provide coincident, multi-spectral, active and passive remote...
