    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...

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

    06 Jul 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;...
