Examining Volcanic Lightning During Explosive Eruptions

Examining Volcanic Lightning During Explosive Eruptions | Lightning | Scoop.it
We’ve seen a lot of stunning images of volcanic lightning of the last few years. I can think of some great shots of eruptions from Chaitén, Puyehue-Cordón Caulle, Kirishima, Sakurajima and Eyjafjallajökull that produced (with a little help from time-lapse photography and a good, dark sky) some incredible images of lightning that is generated during an ash-rich eruption. These lightning storms are powerful, up to twice as energetic as a supercell thunderstorm like we get here in Ohio. People have been capturing the combination of lightning and eruptions for centuries (see below), yet we oddly know little about its exact causes. In this week’s EOS (along a more indepth article in press at Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research), a study by Sonja Behnke and others looked at the lightning generated during the 2009 eruptions from Redoubt in Alaska in order to understand more about the generation and dynamics of volcanic lightning.
