The drilling project at Owens Lake commenced in April,1991. This Open-File Report represents an effort to makeavailable to other researchers our preliminary datacollected during the first year of study followingcompletion of the core-drilling phase. Nineteen datacollections and preliminary interpretations are presentedin the following sections. They are the work of fifteenfirst-authors and their numerous co-authors. Broadly,their topics include a field log of the core(1 contribution), sedimentological analyses (1), clay-mineral identification (1), geochemical analyses (5),dating and age estimates of the cored sediments (4), andidentifications of fossil materials (7).
Ash fall contour map of the 2009 eruption of Redoubt Volcano, Alaska: Digital shapefiles of contours and sample locations
The 2009 eruption of Redoubt Volcano included 19 major tephra-producing explosions. Mass per unit area (MPUA) ash fall sampling of the resulting deposits allowed us to create isomass contours of the ash fall. This dataset contains the vector digital shapefiles of the ash fall contours for the explosive events. In addition, a point digital shapefile is included that describes more than 400 ash fall samples that were collected. For a detailed account of the 2009 eruption of Redoubt Volcano, see Schaefer, J.R., ed., 2012, The 2009 eruption of Redoubt Volcano, Alaska, with contributions by Bull, Katharine, Cameron, Cheryl, Coombs, Michelle, Diefenbach, Angie, Lopez, Taryn, McNutt, Steve, Neal, Christina, Payne, Allison,...
Major-element glass compositions of tephra from the circa 3.6 ka eruption of Aniakchak volcano, Alaska Peninsula, Alaska
This Raw Data File presents major-oxide glass geochemical results from the ca. 3.6 ka caldera-forming eruption of Aniakchak volcano, Alaska. These data are part of a larger effort to identify and characterize tephra deposits from the largest eruptions in Alaska for use as geochronological marker horizons. Aniakchak is one of at least 29 volcanoes in Alaska that has had multiple large tephra-producing eruptions. Other deposit and sample metadata including geospatial distributions of this tephra deposit are held in the Alaska Volcano Observatory's online database, the Geologic Database of Information on Volcanoes in Alaska (GeoDIVA), and will be linked to these new geochemical data once published. Products included...
