    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.

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

    18 Dec 2018 | 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...

    1D-steady state model for volcanic conduits

  4. Documentation for "Effect of particle entrainment on the runout of pyroclastic density currents"

    08 Sep 2016 | Contributor(s): Kristen Fauria, Michael Manga, Michael Chamberlain

    This is a repository for the data and script used in, "Effect of particle entrainment on the runout of pyroclastic density currents."Here you will find:1. A compilation of splash function experimental data from this study and data that was extracted from seven other studies:...

  5. ASHEE

    14 Aug 2015 | 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...

  6. Pyroclastic density currents and local topography as seen with the conveyer model

    15 Apr 2014 | Contributor(s): Domenico M. Doronzo

    Pyroclastic density currents (PDCs) are multiphase flows generated during explosive volcanic eruptions, and they move down the volcano, and over the surrounding topography. The flow-topography interaction can play a fundamental role in the sedimentary processes, and in the resulting deposit...

  7. Keweenaw Boulder Garden

    27 Apr 2011 | 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...

  8. Mount St Helens 1980-6 Activity summary

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

    This series of two lectures summarizes the sequence of events asssociated with the 1980-86 eruptions of Mount St Helens, Washington State, USA. It is intended as a refresher for students and researchers.Lipman, Peter W., and Mullineaux, Donal R. (eds.), 1981, The 1980 Eruptions of Mount St....

  9. Mapping a 49 year old eruption of a basaltic cone: Pacaya Guatemala

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

    This presentation summarizes the 50 year eruption and the 3 dimensional map produced. The map, prepared as part of an MS thesis by Ruben Otoniel Matias Gomez, is under review as a Map and Chart Series publication by the GSA. The lecture summarizes the situation at Pacaya, and uses Matias' map as...

    The Tephra2 ash dispersion model run via a GUI designed for student use.

  11. 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...

  12. Modeling volcanic eruptions: Practical experience from large-scale experiments

    29 Jan 2011 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Pierfrancesco Dellino

    This lecture is part of the Large-scale Experiments Workshop held in September, 2010.
