VUELCO deliverable 7.5: Guidelines for the best practice of scientific management of volcanic unrest
09 Sep 2015 | Publications | 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...
14 Aug 2015 | Offline Tools | 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...
Pyroclastic density currents and local topography as seen with the conveyer model
15 Apr 2014 | Publications | 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...
Underwater volcano disaster - an Oxford Sparks Animation
19 Mar 2014 | Educational Materials | 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...
