Artificial cloud test confirms volcanic ash detection using infrared spectral imaging

Abstract:

Airborne volcanic ash particles are a known hazard to aviation. Currently, there are no means available to detect ash in flight as the particles are too fine (radii<30 µm) for on-board radar detection and, even in good visibility, ash clouds are difficult or impossible to detect by eye. The economic cost and societal impact of the April/May 2010 Icelandic eruption of Eyjafjallajokull generated renewed interest in finding ways to identify airborne volcanic ¨ ash in order to keep airspa...
