  8. 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...

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

    09 Jan 2014 | Contributor(s): Steven Kuehn, Solene Pouget, Marcus I Bursik

    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;...
