Volcanic Ash Monitoring and Forecasting
IMS Public Lecture March 2019. The Custom House. 18:30 on Thursday 21 March.
The problem of ash transport and its interactions with aviation, agriculture and human health is global and thus, requires a global approach. Remote sensing from space using different satellite platforms is best suited for ash detection and observation since it presents a global perspective, is efficient, and in the case of volcanic eruptions presents no risk during acquisition. Enhancing the use of Earth Observation (EO) data in volcanic ash will help to improve the existing monitoring and forecasting services for ash transport and its interaction with civil aviation (and the other areas previously mentioned).
