  5. Large Scale Experiments on Volcanic Processes (EOS)

    19 Jul 2011 | Contributor(s): Greg A Valentine

    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...

  15. Direct sampling of volcanic clouds

    08 Feb 2011 | Presentations | Contributor(s): William I Rose

    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...
