  1. Shawn's Contribution

    01 Jun 2020 | Miscellaneous | Contributor(s): Shawn Rice, Nicholas J. Kisseberth

    The contribution process is intended to be much like composing an e-mail: You'll start with writing the introduction and main content of your contribution and later attach files to it (video, PDFs, etc).The abstract is typically a one or two paragraph description of your contribution.

  2. Spread sheet to calculate tephra volume for exponential thinning

    01 Jun 2020 | Offline Tools

    An Excel spread sheet and instructions are provided to calculate tephra volume for exponential thinning on a log(thickness) versus square root of area plot. The spread sheet calculates volumes for a single straight line and for two straight lines. The equations for the calculations are from...

  3. Tephra 2014 - Maximizing the potential of tephra for multidisciplinary science

    01 Jun 2020 | Workshops

    Tephra deposits are used by diverse communities: volcanologists, petrologists, tephrochronologists, paleoclimatologists, paleoecologists and archaeologists. To perhaps be too reductionist, volcanologists are generally interested in tephra to understand eruption behavior, frequency, and hazards;...

  8. Tephra isopach, extent and volume calculation in R

    01 Jun 2020 | Offline Tools

    The method presented here is used to interpolate the thickness distribution of tephra fall deposits from point measurements. It first reconstructs the general thickness decay pattern, or "trend," and then models the residuals that cannot be explained by the trend with...
