  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...

  8. TOTGS: Total grainsize distribution of tephra fallout

    20 Jan 2014 | Contributor(s): Seb Biass, Costanza Bonadonna

    NOTE The code is now maintained on GitHub: https://github.com/e5k/TOTGS Follow updates on: https://e5k.github.io/  Quantifying the total grainsize distribution (TGSD) is a necessary step to achieve a thorough characterization of a given tephra deposit. Several methods exist to...

  9. 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;...

  10. Estimating Volcanic Risk in the Lesser Antilles

    26 Sep 2013 | Contributor(s): Michal Camejo, Richard E.A. Robertson

    The potential catastrophic effects of future volcanic eruptions in the Lesser Antilles can be decreased by the utilisation of effective risk quantification measures and their subsequent incorporation into disaster risk reduction strategies. A volcanic risk study conducted by the Norwegian...
