Presentations (1-7 of 7)

  1. 1992 Spurr Eruption Case Discussion

    27 Apr 2011 | Contributor(s):: William I Rose

    This lecture summarizes distal ash cloud observations via satellite and radar, along with information about meteorology and fallout, for the 1992 Crater Peak/Spurr eruptions. These small subplinian events produced significant fine and very fine ash fallouts that were sampled and measured. Even...
