  1. Natural Hazards Tephra Fallout Lab

    21 Oct 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...

  5. 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...

    This is the meeting abstract volume from a rapidly assembled UK community-wide meeting to discuss the Eyjafjallajökull eruption and its consequences. The meeting was supported by the UK National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO; Natural Hazards theme, http://comet.nerc.ac.uk) and the...

  7. Detecting volcanic ash from space

    08 Feb 2011 | Presentations

    How satellites detect, map and measure volcanic ash in volcanic clouds. HYSPLIT and volcanic cloud satellite observations. Volcanic cloud stages. Infrared satellite detectors, split window. Evolution of volcanic clouds from space platforms.Rose, W I, G J S Bluth, D J Schneider, G G J Ernst, C M...

  8. Direct sampling of volcanic clouds

    08 Feb 2011 | Presentations

    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...

  9. Eruption data for ash-cloud model validation

    04 Apr 2013 | Data Sets/Collections

    This is a collection of data, references, and links to data on well-documented eruptions whose observations can be used to validate ash-cloud transport models. Data include, among other things, plume height, duration, erupted volume, satellite observations, numerical wind fields, and grain-size...

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

    14 Mar 2018 | Workshops

    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...

  13. Maar-diatremes - a course module

    21 Oct 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...
