Forum on the “Assessment of volcanic ash threat: learning and considerations from the Eyjafjallajökull eruption”

Published on

Abstract

The April-May 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption has had a tremendous unprecedented impact on civil aviation in Europe and beyond resulting in millions of Euros in economic loss and large social impact, especially during the 14-20 April week. The Organizing Committee of the COV6 meeting, held in Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain) during 31 May-4 June 2010, scheduled an open Forum aimed at joining scientists and different actors attending the meeting that were directly or indirectly involved in the crisis. The idea was to stimulate an open discussion and to analyze the current strategy used for forecasting volcanic ash clouds and mitigating its effects on aviation.
This document lists the main issues raised and discussed during the development of the Forum. Although in general terms there was a broad consensus among participants, the items listed below do not represent any particular opinion nor are necessarily shared by all the attendees.
