  1. 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...

  2. PYFLOW_2.0. A new tool for estimating the impact parameters and the deposition rate and time of dilute PDCs based on field data

    22 Nov 2017 | Contributor(s): Fabio Dioguardi, Daniela Mele, Pierfrancesco Dellino

    PYFLOW_2.0 is a hazard tool for the calculation of the impact parameters of dilute pyroclastic density currents (DPDCs). DPDCs represent the dilute turbulent type of gravity flows that occur during explosive volcanic eruptions; their hazard is the result of their mobility and the capability...

  6. Confort 15 (Conflow improvement)

    22 Apr 2016 | Contributor(s): Silvia Campagnola, Claudia Romano, Larry G Mastin, Alessandro Vona

    We present an updated version of the Conflow model, an open-source numerical model for flow in eruptive conduits during steady-state pyroclastic eruptions (Mastin and Ghiorso, 2000). In the Confort 15 program, several updates were considered:The rheological parameters of the model are...

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

    15 Apr 2014 | Publications | 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...
