The World Meteorological Organization brought together international experts from volcano observatories, academia, volcanic ash advisory centres, meteorological services and representatives of aviation regulators, engine manufacturers and airlines to discuss progress on ash dispersal forecasting and produce a roadmap for the future.           

A workshop on ash dispersal forecast and civil aviation  from 18 to 20 November reinforced the multi-disciplinary collaboration that has grown since the disruption to air transport caused by the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland in 2010. The workshop was sponsored by WMO, the University of Geneva, the British Geological Survey, the UK Met Office, the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) and the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior.
