  1. Underwater volcano disaster - an Oxford Sparks Animation

    19 Mar 2014

    A short (2 minute) animation of a subduction zone and volcano, introducing the processes involved in subduction, melting and volcanism.This animation can be used as a stand alone item, or in a classroom. We have developed some class activities around an exercise in volcano monitoring at an...

  2. 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...

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

    23 Jan 2022

    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;...

  4. Estimating Volcanic Risk in the Lesser Antilles

    23 Jan 2022 | 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...

  5. New Methods and Computer Codes for Volcanic Modelling

    23 Jan 2022

    This workshop was undertaken before the IAVCEI conference in July 2013, complementing the session on "Stress, strain and mass changes at active volcanoes. It brings together seismic and geodetic methods and computational approaches for modelling volcanic processes.Material presented includes:1....

  9. Large Scale Experiments on Volcanic Processes (EOS)

    23 Jan 2022 | 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...

  10. Tephra2: Student Version

    23 Jan 2022 | Tools

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

  11. Natural Hazards Tephra Fallout Lab

    23 Jan 2022 | Educational Materials

    This lab walks students through using the tephra2 education graphical user interface (gui) to investigate tephra fallout at Colima volcano. By the end of this lab, students should be able to:•understand that every volcanic event is different and so produces a unique deposit•convert from units of...
