    Tephra deposits: extracting information from the field and cores What should be recorded/observed on the field? Should the uncertainty be recorded? How to distinguish primary from reworked...


  8. TOTGS: Total grainsize distribution of tephra fallout

    20 Jan 2014 | Contributor(s):: Seb Biass, Costanza Bonadonna

    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...

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

    09 Jan 2014 | Contributor(s):: Steven Kuehn, Solene Pouget, Marcus I Bursik

    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;...

  18. Natural Hazards Tephra Fallout Lab

    04 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Leah Michelle Courtland

    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...
