Geoscientists conducting basic or applied research with pyroclastic materials may be interested in contributing references to relevant articles for inclusion in the first edition of the INQUA World Bibliography on Quaternary Tephrochronology.
The total range of subject matter to be covered in the bibliography has not yet been set but may include discussions of source areas, petrography, and chemistry of volcanic ejecta in deposits of the Pleistocene and Holocene age. Other suggested categories are age-dating, archaeology, geomorphology, palynology, soils, weathering, and vegetation as specifically related to the ejecta in these deposits. A separate section will deal with methods of collecting, preparing, examining, and ‘fingerprinting’ samples of pyroclastic material for use in tephrochronology.
