VOLCANOLOGYSKAFTARTUNGA, ICELAND-- The more researchers learn about the unheralded Laki eruption of 1783, the more they see a need to prepare for a reprise that could include fluoride poisoning and widespread air pollution. 
Are Volcanic Gases Serial Killers?
Environmental consequences of ancient eruptions can be estimated by analysis of glass inclusions trapped in minerals present in lava flows.
Feeding large eruptions : crystallisation, mixing and degassing in Icelandic magma chambers
Iceland straddles the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and overlies a mantle hotspot. This tectonic setting produces voluminous tholeiitic magmas. Volcanism in Iceland is focussed along three neovolcanic spreading
Volcanogenic sulfate and fluoride deposition : effects on organic and mineral soil gas fluxes and chemistry
This thesis focuses on the environmental effects of volcanic eruptions such as Eyjafjallajokull (2010) from which volcanic gases and ash particles can impact upon ecosystems located thousands of
The first archaeobotanical evidence of Lagenaria siceraria from the territory of Hungary: histology, phytoliths and (a)DNA
Bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria (Molina) Standl.) is accepted as typical ‘New World’ cultivated economic plant. Currently, two subspecies are known: L. siceraria ((Molina) Standl.) ssp. siceraria
Experimental and Thermodynamic Constraints on the Sulphur Yield of Peralkaline and Metaluminous Silicic Flood Eruptions
Many basaltic flood provinces are characterized by the existence of voluminous amounts of silicic magmas, yet the role of the silicic component in sulphur emissions associated with trap activity
Ensemble meteorological reconstruction using circulation analogues of 1781{1785
Abstract. This paper uses a method of atmospheric flow analogues to reconstruct an ensemble of atmospheric variables (namely sea-level pressure, surface temperature and wind speed) between 1781 and
Plant Based Subsistence Strategy of the Medieval Ishmaelite (12th–13th c.) Population in the Carpathian Basin (NE-Hungary)
ABSTRACT During the excavation carried out at the outskirts of Hajdúböszörmény (NE-Hungary) in 2011, the remains of a 12–13th century settlement were brought to light. Linguistic and historical
Palaeopathology by proxy: the case of Egil's bones
The Power of Place: Geography, Destiny, and Globalization's Rough Landscape
In recent years a spate of books and articles have argued that the world today is so mobile, so interconnected and so integrated that it is, in one prominent assessment, flat. But as Harm de Blij
