Accurately determining the geochemical composition of volcanic particles extracted from ice cores is crucial for establishing the source and climatic impact of the volcanic eruption. The development and application of a new quantification procedure using the NIST DTSA II software to SEM / EDS analyses is at the forefront of this current research. Once this is complete, we can better refine possible volcanic source(s) responsible for tephra layer(s) at a specific interval in a given ice core.
