Short summary
IASI spaceborne imagery is used to reconstruct temporal variations of flux and altitude of volcanic emissions via an inversion procedure. Ground-based UV measurements underestimate the SO2 flux by 1 order of magnitude due to ash-induced plume opacity. Assimilation of SO2 altitude, retrieved directly from IASI, should render the inversion scheme independent of the wind shear prerequisite. CALIOP LiDAR observations support the coexistence of SO2 and sulfate aerosols in the volcanic cloud.
