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

    27 May 2020

    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;...

  2. Eruption data for ash-cloud model validation

    27 May 2020

    This is a collection of data, references, and links to data on well-documented eruptions whose observations can be used to validate ash-cloud transport models. Data include, among other things, plume height, duration, erupted volume, satellite observations, numerical wind fields, and grain-size...

  4. Volcanic clouds observed by the A-Train satellite constellation

    27 May 2020 | Data Sets/Collections

    A collection of images showing volcanic eruption clouds detected by NASA's A-Train satellite constellation, which includes the Aqua, CALIPSO, CloudSat and Aura satellites. These examples demonstrate the unique ability of the A-Train to provide coincident, multi-spectral, active and passive remote...

  9. Mapping a 49 year old eruption of a basaltic cone: Pacaya Guatemala

    27 May 2020 | Presentations

    This presentation summarizes the 50 year eruption and the 3 dimensional map produced. The map, prepared as part of an MS thesis by Ruben Otoniel Matias Gomez, is under review as a Map and Chart Series publication by the GSA. The lecture summarizes the situation at Pacaya, and uses Matias' map as...

  10. Tephra2: Student Version

    27 May 2020 | Tools

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

  11. Natural Hazards Tephra Fallout Lab

    27 May 2020 | 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...

  15. Direct sampling of volcanic clouds

    27 May 2020 | Presentations

    Volcanic clouds have only sporadically been directly sampled. Sampling is advantageous to validate remote sensing. Direct sampling was more common in the 1978-1984 period before the hazards to jet aircraft were understood and when piston aircraft sampling was more prevalent. This sampling...
