Underwater volcano disaster - an Oxford Sparks Animation
19 Mar 2014 | Contributor(s): David Pyle
A short (2 minute) animation of a subduction zone and volcano, introducing the processes involved in subduction, melting and volcanism.This animation can be used as a stand alone item, or in a classroom. We have developed some class activities around an exercise in volcano monitoring at an...
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...
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;...

Large Scale Experiments on Volcanic Processes (EOS)
19 Jul 2011 | Publications | Contributor(s): Greg A Valentine
Some of the least understood and most hazardous geologic processes involve complex multiphase flows, particularly those related to explosive volcanic eruptions. These phenomena inherently involve a wide range of characteristic length and time scales, as well as processes that are coupled across...

Natural Hazards Tephra Fallout Lab
04 Mar 2011 | Educational Materials | 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...
