US7 Eyjafjallajökull – eruption, plume, and consequences

In the context of recent airspace closures the poster session for US7 Eyjafjallajökull – eruption, plume, and consequences was held on Wednesday 5th May at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly. Poster topics included effects of the ash cloud (including impact on air quality of the airspace closure), monitoring information, whether Spain could be a transport hub for Europe (based on paleo-ash records) and investigating ash particles that fell to the ground.

There are still oral sessions and splinter meetings associated with the special Union Session on Thursday at the EGU GA 2010.
