Direct sampling of volcanic clouds
08 Feb 2011
Volcanic clouds have only sporadically been directly sampled. Sampling is advantageous to validate remote sensing. Direct sampling was more common in the 1978-1984 period before the hazards to jet aircraft were understood and when piston aircraft sampling was more prevalent. This sampling...

http://www.geo.mtu.edu/~raman/SilverI/Boulder_Garden/ Boulder Gardens are selected and arranged groups of boulders, designed for an educational purpose. At Michigan Tech we selected 40 diverse and representative glacial lag boulders which represent the lithology of all of the regional surficial...
La erupción del volcán Calbuco en 2015: Volcanología, sociedad y ecosistemas
25 Apr 2017
La erupción del 22-23 de abril de 2015 del Volcán Calbuco tuvo impactos en las actividades sociales y ecosistemas en el sur de Chile y en Argentina, debido a la espesa caída de piroclastos, corrientes calientes de gases y rocas, además de flujos de lodo...
Large Scale Experiments on Volcanic Processes (EOS)
19 Jul 2011
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...
Los depósitos de caída de tefra: Una breve revisión sobre su cuantificación y análisis para la clasificación de erupciones volcánicas explosivas, con ejemplos Latinoamericanos
15 Nov 2015
La cuantificación de los depósitos volcánicos es una de las herramientas más utilizadas en la actualidad para clasificar la magnitud de la actividad volcánica y determinar los peligros volcánicos asociados. En el caso especial de las erupciones...

Pyroclastic density currents and local topography as seen with the conveyer model
15 Apr 2014 | Publications
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...
