12 (3): Tephra

Eds: Hall V, Alloway B, Kull C & Christen L

PAGES news, vol. 12(3), 1-20, 2004


The papers presented in this special issue of PAGES news report recent tephrochronological research from places separated by great distances.The result of these new studies has been to develop new methodologies capable of coaxing extremely small amounts from the most obdurate deposits, so that time frames and site-linkage techniques for past environmental studies have improved greatly in precision.
