  1. Natural Hazards Tephra Fallout Lab

    26 Nov 2020 | Educational Materials

    This lab walks students through using the tephra2 education graphical user interface (gui) to investigate tephra fallout at Colima volcano. By the end of this lab, students should be able to:•understand that every volcanic event is different and so produces a unique deposit•convert from units of...

  2. 1st IAVCEI/GVM Workshop: "From Volcanic Hazard to Risk Assessment", Geneva, 27-29 June 2018

    18 Dec 2018 | Workshops

    The complexity of volcanic risk analysis typically resides in the interaction of multiple hazard, vulnerability and exposure aspects dynamically acting over various spatial and temporal scales. Risk analyses provide an evidence-based approach to development and implementation of proactive...

    Download the code on GitHub: https://github.com/e5k/CareySparks86_MatlabFollow updates on: https://e5k.github.io/   This file is a Matlab implementation of the Carey and Sparks (1986) model to estimate i) the plume height above sampling altitude and ii) the wind speed at the...

  4. A new method to identify the vent location of tephra fall deposits based on thickness or maximum clast size measurements (SVL)

    17 Apr 2018 | Offline Tools

    This tool presents a new method to identify the vent location of tephra fall deposits based on thickness or maximum clast size measurements. It is temporarily named "svl", which is short for Source Vent Locator. The method estimates the vent location by coupling semi-empirical models...

  5. An assessment of hydrothermal alteration in the Santiaguito lava dome complex, Guatemala: implications for dome collapse hazards

    28 Feb 2013 | Publications

    A combination of field mapping, geochemistry, and remote sensing methods has been employed to determine the extent of hydrothermal alteration and assess the potential for failure at the Santiaguito lava dome complex, Guatemala. The 90-year-old complex of four lava domes has only experienced...

  10. Maar-diatremes - a course module

    26 Nov 2020 | Educational Materials

    Maar-diatremes are one of the most common volcanic landforms on Earth, and represent an end-member type of volcano whose eruptions are dominated by explosive, subsurface magma-water interaction.  Thus they should form an important component of volcanology courses.  The recent decade has...
