    Description of device for chaotic mixing experiments developed at LMU München

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

    15 Apr 2014

    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...

  4. TOTGS: Total grainsize distribution of tephra fallout

    20 Jan 2014

    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...

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

    27 Jan 2021

    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;...

  6. Estimating Volcanic Risk in the Lesser Antilles

    27 Jan 2021 | Contributor(s): E Bruce Pitman, Abani Patra

    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...

    27 Jan 2021 | Publications

    Report and Community Statement from the workshop on the Eyjafjallajokull eruptions of 2010 and implications for tephrochronology, volcanology and Quaternary studies, Institute of Geography, University of Edinburgh, 5th‐6th May 2011. The first meeting of Tephra in Quaternary Science (TIQS), the...

  13. Large Scale Experiments on Volcanic Processes (EOS)

    27 Jan 2021 | Publications

    Some of the least understood and most hazardous geologic processes involve complex multiphase flows, particularly those related to explosive volcanic eruptions. These phenomena inherently involve a wide range of characteristic length and time scales, as well as processes that are coupled across...
