Prevention of Volcanic Ash Encounters in the Proximity Area between Active Volcanoes and Heavy Air Traffic Routes

This paper presents and describes issues related to prevention of aircraft encounters with volcanic ash in the proximity area between heavy air traffic routes and active volcanoes. In order to illustrate these issues the paper reviews a case study of the Miyakejima volcano eruption in Japan on August 18, 2000. It also reviews, as part of the case study, a volcanic eruption of the Izu-Oshima volcano that occurred in 1986.
