Probabilistic studies with Eject! for Matlab
25 Jun 2019 | Contributor(s):: Karen Strehlow, Laura Sandri, Jo Gottsmann, Geoff Kilgour, Alison Rust, Roberto Tonini
Using a translation of the code of Eject! (Mastin 2001; 2011) in Matlab (Strehlow et al., 2019), we provide a workflow for probabilistic analyses of ballistic ejections during volcanic eruptions that can be used for hazard assessments. An example for the use of this workflow...
PYFLOW_2.0. A new tool for estimating the impact parameters and the deposition rate and time of dilute PDCs based on field data
22 Nov 2017 | Contributor(s):: Fabio Dioguardi, Daniela Mele, Pierfrancesco Dellino
PYFLOW_2.0 is a hazard tool for the calculation of the impact parameters of dilute pyroclastic density currents (DPDCs). DPDCs represent the dilute turbulent type of gravity flows that occur during explosive volcanic eruptions; their hazard is the result of their mobility and the capability...

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...
