Volcanic Ash: Observation Tools and Dispersion Models

Volcanic Ash: Observation Tools and Dispersion Models

This module is the fourth and final entry in the Volcanic Ash series. It covers the tools and techniques used for identifying and forecasting the transport of volcanic ash. Satellite and radar imagery are combined with observations and numerical model output to first identify the presence of volcanic ash and then to help forecast the transport of ash at various levels of the atmosphere.
