A fluid-dynamic model is developed to numerically simulate the non-equilibrium dynamics of polydisperse gas-particle mixtures forming volcanic plumes. Starting from the three-dimensional N-phase Eulerian transport equations for a mixture of gases and solid particles, we adopt an asymptotic...

The Volcanic Hazards Simulation is a half-day capstone activity targeted at upper year geology and emergency management students. It is a complex role-play, where students and instructors play authentic roles and respond to a volcanic crisis scenario. The data for the simulation is delivered via...
