Eyjafjallajökull eruption and ash plume

An early post on the volcanic plume currently causing severe disruption to air travel over northern Europe. I’ve collected together some of the links already sent to met social by Keith which has lots of new images and the EUMETSAT front page from David which has some nice animations.

For those who want a journal reference as a jumping off point for thinking about ash plumes and their impact on aviation, you could do worse than the recent review by Pete Webley who was a PhD student in ESSC (click through the Science Direct link). Please add comments and other links below.

Come along to WCD next week for the latest update and to see if I’ve learned how to pronounce the name of the volcano!
