  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...

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

    18 Dec 2018 | Workshops | Contributor(s): Costanza Bonadonna, Sebastien Biass, Eliza S Calder, Corine Frischknecht, Chris Eric Gregg, Susanna Jenkins, Sue C Loughlin, Scira Menoni, Shinji Takarada, Tom Wilson

    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...

  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...

  5. 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...

  8. ECMapProb

    18 Jul 2019 | *Tools | Contributor(s): Alvaro Aravena, Raffaello Cioni

    Probability map of PDC by using a modifed approach of the energy cone model and topographic information derived from the SRTM 30 m elevation model.

  9. eject model

    01 Feb 2011 | Offline Tools | Contributor(s): Larry Garver Mastin

    Eject is a user-friendly model that calculates the trajectories of blocks that are ballistically ejected from volcanic craters. It has also been used to calculate ballistic trajectories of other objects in other other settings, including missiles and bullets.Details are at:The attached zip...

  10. INQUA–INTAV International Field Conference and Workshop: Crossing New Frontiers

    The INQUA International Focus Group on Tephrochronology and Volcanism (INTAV) cordially invites you to participate in the Crossing New Frontiers - Tephra Hunt in Transylvania international field conference that aims to continue the long tradition of very successful inter-INQUA congress tephra...

  11. Keweenaw Boulder Garden

    27 Apr 2011 | Publications | Contributor(s): William I Rose

    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...

  12. La erupción del volcán Calbuco en 2015: Volcanología, sociedad y ecosistemas

    25 Apr 2017 | Publications | Contributor(s): Jorge E. Romero

    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...

  13. 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...

  15. Maar-diatremes - a course module

    13 Jun 2016 | Educational Materials | Contributor(s): Greg A Valentine, Alison Graettinger

    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...
