  3. TOTGS: Total grainsize distribution of tephra fallout

    26 May 2020

    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...

  4. Tephra 2014 - Maximizing the potential of tephra for multidisciplinary science

    26 May 2020

    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;...

  5. Estimating Volcanic Risk in the Lesser Antilles

    26 May 2020 | Contributor(s): E Bruce Pitman, Abani Patra

    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...
