Stones in the sky
April 2010. Eruption of the Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull, caused major disruptions to aviation. Since that time our understanding of environmental particulates, like volcanic ash, their effects on aircraft systems, and operational impacts has expanded greatly. This presentation reviews some of the key progress in particulate distribution and characterization; next generation sensing (on-aircraft and space borne), and advances in diagnostic and prognostic tools
Dr. Marcus Bursik - Ph.D. from Caltech on “Volcanotectonic evolution of the Mono Basin, California,” in 1989. Came to UB in 1992, after post-doctoral research at University of Cambridge and Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Research has included volcanic seismotectonics since that time with both field work and satellite geodesy, and participation in numerous related initiatives, campaigns and boards.
