ESA/EUMETSAT Workshop on Volcanic Ash Monitoring
26 - 27 May at ESA/ESRIN, Frascati (IT)
On April the 14th the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjalla erupted and has been ejecting since immense plumes of ash and sulphur into the atmosphere. West winds transporting the plume to Europe have been causing major disruptions in flight traffic.
ESA and EUMETSAT are organising a 2 days workshop to take stock of Europe's remote sensing capabilities to address the impact of the Eyjafjalla eruption.
The duration of this workshop is 2 days (26-27 May - each day from 9.00 to 17.00). The basic outline is to have the first day dedicated to oral presentations and the second day to discussions including the writing of a position paper.
Participation to this Workshop is by invitation only.
