Title
Antarctic Tephra Data Base AntT static web site
Abstract
This collaborative interdisciplinary research project aims to consolidate, into a single user-friendly database, information about volcanic products detected in Antarctica. By consolidating information about volcanic sources, and physical and geochemical characteristics of volcanic products, this systematic data collection approach will improve the ability of researchers to identify volcanic ash, or tephra, from specific volcanic eruptions that may be spread over large areas in a geologically instantaneous amount of time. AntT database is designed to assist in the identification and cross-correlation of time intervals in various paleoclimate archives that contain volcanic layers from often unknown sources.
