  1. Documentation for "Effect of particle entrainment on the runout of pyroclastic density currents"

    08 Sep 2016 | Contributor(s): Kristen Fauria, Michael Manga, Michael Chamberlain

    This is a repository for the data and script used in, "Effect of particle entrainment on the runout of pyroclastic density currents."Here you will find:1. A compilation of splash function experimental data from this study and data that was extracted from seven other studies:...

  2. VUELCO deliverable 7.5: Guidelines for the best practice of scientific management of volcanic unrest

    09 Sep 2015 | Contributor(s): dmitri rouwet

    Volcanic eruption forecasting and hazard assessment are multi-disciplinary processes with scientific and social implications. Our limited knowledge and the randomness of the processes behind a volcanic eruption yields the need of quantifying uncertainties on volcano dynamics. With deterministic...

  3. ASHEE

    14 Aug 2015 | Contributor(s): Matteo Cerminara, Tomaso Esposti Ongaro

    A fluid-dynamic model is developed to numerically simulate the non-equilibrium dynamics of polydisperse gas-particle mixtures forming volcanic plumes. Starting from the three-dimensional N-phase Eulerian transport equations for a mixture of gases and solid particles, we adopt an asymptotic...

  4. Dome rock densification parameters

  5. Chaotic Mixing Device

    09 May 2014 | Contributor(s): Daniele Morgavi, Diego Perugini, Cristina P. De Campos, Werner Ertel-Ingrisch, Donald B. Dingwell

    Description of device for chaotic mixing experiments developed at LMU München

  6. 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...

  7. Underwater volcano disaster - an Oxford Sparks Animation

    19 Mar 2014 | Contributor(s): David Pyle

    A short (2 minute) animation of a subduction zone and volcano, introducing the processes involved in subduction, melting and volcanism.This animation can be used as a stand alone item, or in a classroom. We have developed some class activities around an exercise in volcano monitoring at an...

  9. Large Scale Experiments on Volcanic Processes (EOS)

    19 Jul 2011 | Contributor(s): Greg A Valentine

    Some of the least understood and most hazardous geologic processes involve complex multiphase flows, particularly those related to explosive volcanic eruptions. These phenomena inherently involve a wide range of characteristic length and time scales, as well as processes that are coupled across...

  10. Mount St Helens 1980-6 Activity summary

    27 Apr 2011 | Educational Materials | Contributor(s): William I Rose

    This series of two lectures summarizes the sequence of events asssociated with the 1980-86 eruptions of Mount St Helens, Washington State, USA. It is intended as a refresher for students and researchers.Lipman, Peter W., and Mullineaux, Donal R. (eds.), 1981, The 1980 Eruptions of Mount St....
