Removal Processes of Volcanic Ash Particles from the Atmosphere

This paper presents a review of relevant research and observations from the past and present ongoing studies of volcano monitoring by satellites. Over the past 25 years many infrared, ultraviolet, and satellite sensors have been used to investigate the liquid, gas, and solid species in a variety of volcanic ash clouds. Each sensor offers a different perspective on volcanic ash clouds, depending on their temporal, spectral and spatial resolutions. Combined, these techniques offer crucial constraints on the fates and interactions of species within the clouds.
