NASA Earth Observato Ash from Puyehue-Cordón Caulle: This series of images tracks ash from Chile’s Puyehue-Co...

In its early, violent days, the eruption at the Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcanic complex sent clouds of ash high into the atmosphere. Rising some 15 kilometers into the air, the ash settled into a jet of fast-moving wind on a trip around the world. This series of images tracks the ash from Chile to the eastern South Pacific Ocean, nearly completing a trip around the globe in eight days. The images show the density of particles in the atmosphere (aerosols) as measured by the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on the Aura satellite. The series starts on June 5, 2011, the day after the eruption began, and continues through June 13. The volcanic ash is an area of concentrated particles represented in dark red. Shades of orange and yellow point to areas with lighter concentrations of particles, including ash, smoke from fires, and desert dust. The light gray regions are places whe...
