Detecting Volcanic Plumes with GPS Data | UNAVCO

Detecting Volcanic Plumes with GPS Data | UNAVCO | Earthquakes and Volcanoes | Scoop.it
UNAVCO, a non-profit university-governed consortium, facilitates geoscience research and education using geodesy.
Tina's insight:

GPS SNR data is effective at distinguishing ash plumes within clouds. SNR is not sensitive to water vapour therefore eliminates confusion between the two types of clouds.

Avoid volcanic ash detection - easyJet plc

Avoid volcanic ash detection - easyJet plc | Earthquakes and Volcanoes | Scoop.it
Tina's insight:

Easy Jet has developed a sensor 'AVOID' to detect ash clouds from up to 100km ahead, allowing pilots to make small adjustments to routs to avoid the hazardous clouds.

Data gathered on peaks can help scientists estimate and track plume heights.
Tina's insight:

Discussion of predicting future ash plume types and extents. Emphasis that composition of magma changes plume characteristics dramatically. This is a problem for predictions.
