  5. bent: A model of plumes in crossflow

    11 Nov 2010 | Contributor(s): Marcus I Bursik

    Bent is an integral trajectory model for calculation of plume parameters in the presence of a crossflow (wind). It has been validated against data for eruptions from Kliuchevskoi and Avachinskiy volcanoes, Russia.

  6. Confort 15 (Conflow improvement)

    22 Apr 2016 | Contributor(s): Marcus I Bursik

    We present an updated version of the Conflow model, an open-source numerical model for flow in eruptive conduits during steady-state pyroclastic eruptions (Mastin and Ghiorso, 2000). In the Confort 15 program, several updates were considered:The rheological parameters of the model are...

  8. 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...
