Abstract
ABSTRACT: A refined volcanic plume model is proposed to evaluate improved forecasting of ash movement and dispersion. This refined model utilizes near real-time model calibration and validation, perspective satellite observation geometry, and future in-situ measurements for more accurate models and forecasts. BENEFIT: Aircraft safety utilizes coarse volcanic plume models and better models will allow improved operational safety margins.
