Large-scale particle-driven gravity currents occur in the atmosphere, often in the form of pyroclastic flows that result from explosive volcanic eruptions. The behaviour of these gravity currents is analysed here and it is shown that compressibility can be important in flow of such particle-laden gases because the presence of particles greatly reduces the density scale height, so that variations in density due to compressibility are significant over the thickness of the flow.
