Volcanic Ash Course Added
Posted on: 2011-10-10

With the recent publication of the fourth module in the Volcanic Ash series, Volcanic Ash: Observation Tools and Dispersion Models, we've put together a new distance learning course: Volcanic Ash: Science, Impacts and Forecasting Course. The focus of this series of modules is to provide the operational meteorologist with a thorough understanding of the cause and characteristics of volcanic eruptions, detecting volcanic ash, forecasting plume movement, and assessing societal impacts. For our NOAA users, this course is also represented in the Commerce Learning Center @ National Weather Service as a development plan.
