The interest in the study of tephra layers has proceeded on two fronts: Tephra is a term used to describe all of the solid material produced from a volcano during an eruption Thorarinsson, Journal of Paleolimnology 31 The Holocene is and among geologic epochs because varied means of correlating deposits and establishing chronologies are available. British tephra deposits from the AD eruption of Hekla, Iceland. Tephrochronology was used to help quantify Holocene carbon accumulation rates in the Flow Country Scotland.
Amongst the papers was Kelly, T.
