Abstract

Plots of raw backscatter profiles from the MST Radar Facility's Vaisala LD40 laser ceilometer, Capel Dewi, Wales obtained during the Icelandic Volcano, Eyjafjallajokull, erupting from on 14th April 2010.

The volcanic ash cloud produced covered much of Northern Europe for several weeks causing extensive disruption to air travel. The UK and European atmospheric communities had many instruments - both airborne and ground-based, remote sensing and in-situ - taking measurements of the ash cloud throughout this period.
