Aggregation and fall of volcanic ash, processes dynamics: information for automatic sampling development.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

, the goal of the present research is:

1) the investigation of the physical processes that control volcanic ash aggregation through the study of the 14 April-21 May 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption samples (Iceland). Collected material will be described in terms of shape, size and texture of the aggregates and of grain-size of their constituents using image analysis techniques. Samples will be analyzed to examine how aggregates changed in size and typology with distance from source and throughout the eruption;

2) the study of the parameters which regulate the final terminal velocity of volcanic particles. In particular, density changes with particle grain-size will be evaluated.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
