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 mass/area to thickness
•read a contour plot
•plot a histogram
