Spread sheet to calculate tephra volume for exponential thinning
10 Apr 2015 | Contributor(s): Manuel Nathenson, Judy Fierstein
An Excel spread sheet and instructions are provided to calculate tephra volume for exponential thinning on a log(thickness) versus square root of area plot. The spread sheet calculates volumes for a single straight line and for two straight lines. The equations for the calculations are from...

Pyroclastic density currents and local topography as seen with the conveyer model
15 Apr 2014 | Contributor(s): Domenico M. Doronzo
Pyroclastic density currents (PDCs) are multiphase flows generated during explosive volcanic eruptions, and they move down the volcano, and over the surrounding topography. The flow-topography interaction can play a fundamental role in the sedimentary processes, and in the resulting deposit...
TOTGS: Total grainsize distribution of tephra fallout
20 Jan 2014 | Contributor(s): Seb Biass, Costanza Bonadonna
NOTE The code is now maintained on GitHub: https://github.com/e5k/TOTGS Follow updates on: https://e5k.github.io/ Quantifying the total grainsize distribution (TGSD) is a necessary step to achieve a thorough characterization of a given tephra deposit. Several methods exist to...
Tephra 2014 - Maximizing the potential of tephra for multidisciplinary science
09 Jan 2014 | Contributor(s): Steven Kuehn, Solene Pouget, Marcus I Bursik
Tephra deposits are used by diverse communities: volcanologists, petrologists, tephrochronologists, paleoclimatologists, paleoecologists and archaeologists. To perhaps be too reductionist, volcanologists are generally interested in tephra to understand eruption behavior, frequency, and hazards;...
Estimating Volcanic Risk in the Lesser Antilles
26 Sep 2013 | Contributor(s): Michal Camejo, Richard E.A. Robertson
The potential catastrophic effects of future volcanic eruptions in the Lesser Antilles can be decreased by the utilisation of effective risk quantification measures and their subsequent incorporation into disaster risk reduction strategies. A volcanic risk study conducted by the Norwegian...
