Reanalysis of Eruption Clouds from the North Pacific and their Impact on Aircraft Routes

The relatively recent eruption of the Mt. Cleveland volcano (2001), in Alaska, was reanalyzed by the Alaska Volcano Observatory's (AVO's) University of Alaska in Fairbanks regarding potential aircraft exposure to airborne volcanic ash. The combination of dispersion model forecasts, flight route data and satellite data offers an insight on how the ash cloud impacted the air traffic in the region.
