Estimating monogenetic volcanoes' eruptive volumes from digital elevation map data

Geology seminar by PhD student Rong Zhang

A monogenetic volcanic field may consist of 10 to 1000 volcanoes which are spatially and temporally related. Since monogenetic volcanoes erupt only once and usually complete eruptions in a short time (days to years), understanding individual eruptive volume and long-term output rate of monogenetic volcanic fields are essential for studying monogenetic volcanic system and predicting volcanic hazard.

In this talk I will present a cost-effective method based on digital elevation map (DEM) data to estimate eruptive volume and relative-age (geomorphologic dating) of monogenetic volcanoes in Longgang Volcanic Field, China.
