Topographic Controls on the Generation of Elutriated Ash Clouds
9316656 Bursik The primary hypothesis to be tested is that the manner in which elutriated ash clouds (of which 'coignimbrite' ash clouds are a subset) are generated is strongly dependent upon the interaction of ...
Development of an Intelligent Aid in Lithostratigraphic Correlation
The objective of the proposed work is to develop an intelligent decision-aid system to organize and process data for stratigraphic correlation and, ultimately, interpretation of eruption patterns. The system is to be based ...
Particle Trajectories in Volcanic Plumes: Model Development and Testing at Inyo Craters, California, United States
The main goal of this research is the development of a model for volcanic plumes that tracks the paths of rocky particles (pyroclasts or tephra) within the plume and calculates where these particles fall. One impact of the ...
RAPID RESEARCH: Particle Trajectories in Volcanic Plumes: Tracking the 2010 Eyjafjallajokull Plume
This RAPID (Rapid Response) project is a collaborative effort by scientists from University at Buffalo (UB), the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska - Fairbanks (UAF-GI) and University to make an attempt to ...
Fundamental Fluid Dynamic Controls on Delta Clinoform Morpholgy
Bursik Support is provide to conduct an experimental investigation of the sedimentation processes that lead to the formation of delta deposits (clinoforms) at the mouth of large rivers like the Mississippi. Using a series ...
