  1. Determination of the largest clasts of tephra deposits for the characterization of explosive volcanic eruptions: report of the IAVCEI Commission on Tephra Hazard Modelling

    27 Jul 2011 | Contributor(s):: Costanza Bonadonna, simona scollo, Raffaello Cioni, Laura Pioli, Marco Pistolesi

    This report summarizes the results of the field workshop of the IAVCEI Commission on Tephra Hazard Modelling that was carried out in Salcedo, Ecuador (January 16-18, 2006) with the main objective of assessing the best way to characterize the largest clasts of tephra deposits. Defining the largest...

  2. Los depósitos de caída de tefra: Una breve revisión sobre su cuantificación y análisis para la clasificación de erupciones volcánicas explosivas, con ejemplos Latinoamericanos

    15 Nov 2015 | Contributor(s):: Jorge E. Romero

    La cuantificación de los depósitos volcánicos es una de las herramientas más utilizadas en la actualidad para clasificar la magnitud de la actividad volcánica y determinar los peligros volcánicos asociados. En el caso especial de las erupciones...

  3. South Mono Geochemical Dataset

    18 Jan 2014 | Contributor(s):: Marcus I Bursik

    This is the set of geochemical data that are shown in the publication on the South Mono tephra (in review at JVGR as of 18 January 2014).

  4. 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;...

  5. Tephra 2014-2020 Document Repository

    01 Jul 2015 | Contributor(s):: Marcus I Bursik, Solene Pouget, Stephen C Kuehn, Kristi L Wallace, Andrei V Kurbatov

    Beginning with the consensus document (with three appendices) resulting from the Tephra 2014 Workshop, this is the document repository for the Tephra 2014, 2017 and 2020 Workshops on standardization.The immediate goal of the tephra standardization effort is to translate checklists...

  6. TError: towards a better quantification of the uncertainty propagated during the characterization of tephra deposits

    28 Nov 2014 | Contributor(s):: Sebastien Biass, Gholamohssein Bagheri, William Aeberhard, Costanza Bonadonna

    NOTE The code is now maintained on GitHub: https://github.com/e5k/TErrorFollow updates on: https://e5k.github.io/  Eruption Source Parameters (ESP; e.g. plume height, erupted volume/mass, mass eruption rate, eruption duration) inferred from tephra deposits are associated with large degrees...
