Research Areas

Laboratory Science Review June 21-23, 2016 Research Areas Atmospheric Dispersion and Boundary Layer Characterization The accidental or intentional release of chemical, biological, or nuclear agents, as well as ash associated with volcanic eruptions, can have significant health, safety, national security,  economic, and ecological implications. The Air Resources Laboratory (ARL) provides critical modeling and observation data…

I saw a program on TV that stated volcanic gas and/or ash is necessary for earth’s healthy atmosphere, and that volcanic erruptions cause a protective layer between us and the sun. Is this in fact true? Our office deals with the atmospheric transport of volcanic ash, rather than the benefits of it. As one example,…

Is it true that the VAAC’s do not issue volcanic ash dispersion model forecasts (sometimes called “VAFTADs” using the name of an earlier model), but use them as guidance, like the PUFF and AVHRR? If I wanted to see your forecast, then would need to look up your bulletin and the attached VAAC chart along…

faq-v3

I am doing a project on air pollution due to Volcanic activity. I am missing one major part of the project: a model for the plume so that I can calculate the contaminant dispersion. I was wondering if one of you were familiar with such models and if I could get any information about them.…

faq-v1

As an airline pilot I always check the volcanic ash dispersion forecasts for Colima and Popoctptl whenever I fly Toronto-Mexico City, however I’m a little uncertain as to just how much gravity I should treat them with. If I was flying, say, from Miami to Mexico City at 18000ft can you tell me just what…
