Using lake sediment records to reconstruct volcanic histories
: Examples from Aluto and Calbuco Volcanoes

  • Keri McNamara

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisDoctor of Philosophy (PhD)


Here I present a study of lake core deposits at two volcanic centres. The primary motivation of the study is elucidating the eruptive history of Aluto volcano in Ethiopia using tephra layers deposited into lakes. This is undertaken in two ways (1) a tephrostratigraphic study of Aluto Volcanic Complex and (2) a study of how deposition of volcanic material into lakes affects the sedimentation of particles and the subsequent deposit.
