[Frontier Letter] Temporal variations in discharge rate and component characteristics of tephra-fall deposits during the 2014–2015 eruption of Nakadake first crater, Aso Volcano, Japan

Miyabuchi and Hara (2019) present the distribution, discharged mass, and components of tephra-fall deposits to examine the sequence and characteristics of the 2014-2015 magmatic eruption at Nakadake first crater, Aso Volcano, SW Japan. Continuous monitoring of tephra deposits and visual observation of eruptive phenomena combined with geophysical observations, would provide new insights into magmatic and eruptive processes on small but long-lasting activities at Nakadake Volcano and other similar basaltic to andesitic volcanoes. The readers can download 28 isomass maps and the tephra dispersal data associated with the series of eruptions as additional files.
