Now this story, I'd like to hear.
dave whenever i saw the pics it looked to be a fairly concentrated plume but i wonder about the spread of particulate matter that is too fine to register from space. you'll have to open up your knowledge vault on this one dave. what do you know?!! steven
I can think of a few weary travelers who would find that fact VERY interesting.
Hi Dave,I'm sure we will learn much from this latest episode. All to the good.
It doesn't surprise me at all.
Ahhh, but look up National Geographic's story on Global Dimming. The fine particulate matter is cooling and shading our ocean life dependent on the sunlight.
I LOVE THE WAY THIS FLOWS TOGETHER. VERY INTERESTING AND DOWNRIGHT AMAZING.
When I act like an ashI usually blow off steamEyjafjallajökull (translation: eventually).
Pictures lie! I know for a fact that this is true- I have taken pictures of myself and I look nothing like that old shriveled mass captured in the photo! Do not trust pictures!
All of this because of a lie then, cancelled flights, all the fuss?As willow I woudn't be much surprised.Or is it a metaphor?Anyway I enjoyed the concision and sharpness of this haiku.
Did anyone tell that to the volcano?
Neat haiku about space and many other believed fantasies.
AllFabulous response. Thank you all very much - but don't forget that you heard it here first (my Haiku about the brightening skies beneath the ash cloud)!Yes, seriously folk. My source was yesterday's Mail, a piece by Sean Poulter, the Consumer Affairs Editor. The salient points of which were:Satellite images now indicate that the skies were always largely clear.At the start of the crisis there was a lack of definitive data.For some of the time the density of ash above the UK was close to undetectable.The decision to ban flights was based on a Met Office computer projection which painted a picture of clouds of ash being blown from the volcano.These models should have been tested by the Met Office's own research plane - which was in a hangar for repainting.The ash achieved a maximum density of 1/20th of the the limit that is now regarded as unsafe.
Gosh, this is sort of fascinating.My cousin in Balham thinks her loss of voice etc was caused by an allergic reaction to dust ( she is not usually a hyperchondriac).This is the first time I heard that maybe the flights were cancelled in error.However, I live in NY and people are now dying from exposure to the 9/11 dust which we were told at the time was 'safe'!!! (it did smell horrible though.....)
ElizabethYes, I thought - still think - we had some ash drop on us, but an insignificant amount in terms of aviation - less than we sometimes get from the sand blown over from the Sahara.
