  1. Natural Hazards Tephra Fallout Lab

    04 Mar 2011 | Educational Materials | Contributor(s): Leah Michelle Courtland

    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...

  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 | Contributor(s): Qingyuan Yang, Marcus I Bursik, E Bruce Pitman

    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...

  7. ASHEE

    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...

  16. Large Scale Experiments on Volcanic Processes (EOS)

    19 Jul 2011 | Publications | Contributor(s): Greg A Valentine

    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...
