The Novarupta-Katmai eruption of 1912 - largest eruption of the twentieth century: centennial perspectives / Wes Hildreth, Judy Fierstein.

Title: The Novarupta-Katmai eruption of 1912 - largest eruption of the twentieth century: centennial perspectives / Wes Hildreth, Judy Fierstein.
Author(s): Hildreth, Wes.
Fierstein, Judy.
Date: 2012.
In: U.S. Geological Survey professional paper. (2012.), Vol. 1791 (2012)
Abstract: Illustrates and documents complex eruptive sequence at Novarupta (Alaska) in June 1912, and explains how its deposits have provided key insights about volcanic and magmatic processes. Novarupta was one of few historical eruptions to produce collapsed caldera, voluminous high-silica rhyolite, wide compositional zonation (51-78% SiO₂), banded pumice, welded tuff, and aerosol/dust veil that measurably depressed global temperature.
