Advisories are issued by a global network of Volcanic Ash Advisory Centres and the UK Met Office hosts the UK and Ireland ( and Atlantic) centre.

Up to date advisories are available from here

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/aviation...aacuk_vag.html

This is the 06:35 UTC plume estimate.

From looking at it i reackon each is a boundary to which Flight Level the Ash Extends to. For anyone unfamiliar to them, e.g. FL250 = 25000FT and so on.

The Blue is for more dense ash cloud, I think the red is for less dense traces of ash.

My missus is supposed to be flying back from sweeden tonight ... d'oh !!!!

Is volcanic ash valuable ... maybe the UK government could try and gather as much as possible and take it as payment for all the lost deposits from the Islandic banks!!!

Snow in Jan, Ash in april :):)

I was due to fly to England via Finland in jan, flight got canceled due to snow, now I'm off to the Snooker in Sheffield on Saturday, and flights could be canceled due to ASH!



Time to give up

RED = Surface to 20,000ft.
GREEN = 20,000 - 35,000ft
