The three-day eruption at Novarupta in 1912 consisted of three discrete episodes. Episode I began with plinian dispersal of rhyolitic fallout (Layer A) and contemporaneous emplacement of rhyolitic ignimbrites and associated proximal veneers. The plinian column was sustained throughout most of the interval of ash flow generation, in spite of progressive increases in the proportions of dacitic and andesitic ejecta at the expense of rhyolite. Accordingly, plinian Layer B, which fell in unbroken… 
Stratigraphy and physical parameters of the Plinian phase of the Campanian Ignimbrite eruption
The Campanian Ignimbrite eruption (39 ka) was the most powerful eruptive event of the Campi Flegrei caldera (southern Italy). This event coincided with the onset of a cold climatic phase and the
Eruptive history of Mount Katmai, Alaska
Mount Katmai has long been recognized for its caldera collapse during the great pyroclastic eruption of 1912 (which vented 10 km away at Novarupta in the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes), but little
Complex proximal deposition during the Plinian eruptions of 1912 at Novarupta, Alaska
Proximal (<3 km) deposits from episodes II and III of the 60-h-long Novarupta 1912 eruption exhibit a very complex stratigraphy, the result of at least four transport regimes and diverse depositional
Event-stratigraphy of a caldera-forming ignimbrite eruption on Tenerife: the 273 ka Poris Formation
The 273 ka Poris Formation in the Bandas del Sur Group records a complex, compositionally zoned explosive eruption at Las Cañadas caldera on Tenerife, Canary Islands. The eruption produced widespread
The timing of caldera collapse at Mount Katmai in response to magma withdrawal toward Novarupta
Several thin layers of nonjuvenile lithic-rich tephra from Mount Katmai are intercalated with 1912 plinian pumice-fall deposits that originated at Novarupta 10 km away, demonstrating that caldera
Assembling an ignimbrite: Compositionally defined eruptive packages in the 1912 Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes ignimbrite, Alaska
The 1912 Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes (VTTS) ignimbrite was constructed from 9 compositionally distinct, sequentially emplaced packages, each with distinct proportions of rhyolite (R), dacite (D),
