Atmospheric implications of the volcanic eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland 2010
Atmospheric implications of the volcanic eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland 2010
Editor(s): C. Bay Hasager, W. Birmili, G. Pappalardo, and F. Prata
The special issue is dedicated to scientific studies of the volcanic eruption of Eyjafjallajökull, the evolution and properties of the resulting plume, and their consequences. The topics range from the characterization of volcanic emissions to the description and forecast of plume dynamics and transport; physical and chemical observations encompassing satellite, aircraft, ground-based remote sensing and in-situ data collection; and the atmospheric implications of volcanic eruptions.
