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

Abstract:

The major explosive eruption of Chaitén 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. Field examinsation of distal ashfall indicates that ~ 1.6 x 10¹¹ kg of ash (dense rock equivalent volume of ~ 0.07 km³) was...
