  1. 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): Marcus I Bursik

    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...

    This is a repository for the data and script used in, "Effect of particle entrainment on the runout of pyroclastic density currents."Here you will find:1. A compilation of splash function experimental data from this study and data that was extracted from seven other studies:...

  4. Confort 15 (Conflow improvement)

    22 Apr 2016 | Contributor(s): Marcus I Bursik

    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...

  7. Large Scale Experiments on Volcanic Processes (EOS)

    19 Jul 2011

    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. Shawn's Contribution

    01 Jun 2020 | Miscellaneous | Contributor(s): Shawn Rice, Nicholas J. Kisseberth

    The contribution process is intended to be much like composing an e-mail: You'll start with writing the introduction and main content of your contribution and later attach files to it (video, PDFs, etc).The abstract is typically a one or two paragraph description of your contribution.
