Improved detection of sulphur dioxide in volcanic plumes using satellite-based hyperspectral infrared measurements: Application to the Eyjafjallajkull 2010 eruption

Abstract:

The explosive phase of the eruption of the Eyjafjallajkull volcano in Iceland beginning on 14 April 2010 caused extensive disruption to aviation in Europe with serious social and economic consequences. Despite its impact, the explosive phase was modest in size and the amount of sulphur dioxide (SO ) released was low. The potential of hyperspectral thermal infrared measurements to discriminate emissions from similar events by measuring SO is examined using the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding In...
