Tephrochronology is a technique that uses discrete layers of tephra (i.e. volcanic ash) to create a chronological framework useful to reconstruct the volcanic history of a given area. Its applications are numerous and there is great potential for expansion in Southeast Asia given the exceptional high density of volcanoes in this part of the world. The goal of this workshop was to review the current knowledge about tephrochronologic markers in the region - their composition and ages, to share findings and best practices, and to instigate region-wide collaboration.
Held from 7 to 8 August 2019, the workshop was jointly organised by the Asian School of the Environment, Earth Observatory of Singapore and IAS NTU.
