  8. Volcanic Ash Analysis and Detection Technology

    SBC: Mobile Mapping Corporation            Topic: AF112-184

    ABSTRACT: Aviation near volcanic plumes is dangerous because aircraft engines can be damaged if they ingest airborne ash and aerosols. Knowing the forecast location of an ash plume will improve aviation safety while reducing engine maintenance costs. Ash forecast models are immature. To improve their accuracy we have conducted research with volcanologists at the University of Alaska Fairbank ...
