Fallout and distribution of volcanic ash over Argentina following the May 2008 explosive eruption of Chaiten, Chile

Abstract:

The major explosive eruption of Charten volcano, Chile, in May 2008 provided a rare opportunity to track the long-range dispersal and deposition of fine volcanic ash. The eruption followed ~ 10,000 years of quiescence, was the largest explosive eruption globally since Hudson, Chile, in 1991, and was the first explosive rhyolitic eruption since Novarupta, Alaska, in 1912.
