Areas of discussion

ALPA APPROACH

EDUCATION

TRAINING

OUTREACH

AREAS OF DISCUSSION


Volcanic ash multi faceted approach

Twenty-plus Years of Progress

Helped Identify and Categorize Damages

Promoted Operational Awareness

Promoted Research and Development

Promoted Improved Detection Capabilities

Helped to Improve and Coordinate Global Communications

Working on Education Program

VOLCANIC ASHMulti-Faceted Approach


Volcanic ash education and training

No Innocent Ash cloud

Detection and Warning – Limited in Scope

Fundamental 1st step – Avoidance

Appropriate Reactions if Ash is Encountered

Procedures to Minimize Impact of Encounter

Understand, some damage inevitable

Examples of Materials for Academics

VOLCANIC ASH Education and Training


Volcanic ash materials for academics

VOLCANIC ASHMaterials for Academics

  • US Geological Survey (USGS) Bulletin 2047 - Volcanic Ash and Aviation Safety: Proceedings of the First International Symposium on Volcanic Ash and Aviation Safety, Edited by Thomas J. Casadevall, Washington, DC, 1994


Volcanic ash materials for academics1

VOLCANIC ASH Materials for Academics

  • International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Doc. 9691-AN/954 – Manual on Volcanic Ash, Radioactive Material, and Toxic Chemical Clouds, First Edition – 2001


Volcanic ash materials for academics2

VOLCANIC ASH Materials for Academics

  • US Geological Survey (USGS) World Map of Volcanoes and Principal Aeronautical Features, by Thomas J. Casadevall and Theodore B. Thompson, Prepared in cooperation with Jeppesen Sanderson, Inc., 1995


Volcanic ash materials for academics3

VOLCANIC ASH Materials for Academics

  • FAA Aviation Safety Journal Reprint, The Volcano Threat to Aviation Safety, Washington, DC, 1991


Volcanic ash materials for academics4

VOLCANIC ASH Materials for Academics

  • US Geological Survey (USGS) Open-File Report 93-518, Volcanic Ash and Airports: Discussions and Recommendations from the Workshop on Impacts of Volcanic Ash on Airport Facilities, by Thomas J. Casadevall, Seattle, WA, April 26-28, 1993


Volcanic ash materials for academics5

VOLCANIC ASH Materials for Academics

  • Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM), Volcanic Activity Reporting Form (VAR), 2004


Volcanic ash education and training1

Dispersion Path

Difficult to model forecast

Critical to define footprint

Airport Contamination

Equipment damage

Runway surface effects

VOLCANIC ASHEducation and Training


Volcanic ash education and training2

Key Elements

Detection – Seismic, satellite, visual

Path prediction – Environmental winds, forecast algorithms

Communications – Interagency & intergovernmental

Difficulties

Areas often remote – North Atlantic and North Pacific

Night – Lightly populated, no seismic monitoring

Lack of lead time – Minimal communications

VOLCANIC ASHEducation and Training


Volcanic ash outreach research and development

Detection – Satellite Sensor Improvements

Resolution – hot spots

Day/night/all weather

Effective alert/action network
