Abstract:
Volcanic eruptions that produce fine ash are common, and regularly 
impinge on busy airspace,  with potentially disastrous consequences.
Since the eruption of EyjaYallajokull in 2010 improvements have been
made to operational observations in order to better mitigate the 
associated risks to jet aircraft. I will present some of the methods used 
to observe and track volcanic ash, the practices followed to predict its movement in time and space, and the challenges associated with these. Drawing on experiences from recent eruptions, I will discuss the prospects for the next Icelandic event.
