Evaluating Reflectance Spectroscopy as a Method of Rapid Cryptotephra Identification: Tephrochronology Of the Lesser Antilles Arc

Fisher, Elizabeth A.
2015

The recent reactivation of Montserrat’s South Soufrière-Soufrière Hills volcanic complex presents significant risk to local populations, and hazard assessments vital to their safety depend on a thorough understanding of the eruptive history of the island (Le Friant et al., 2011). Development of a comprehensive volcanic record, dependent on identifying volcanically deposited tephra layers preserved... read more
