The Puyehue-Cordón Caulle Volcano Chile

Postby Fu Manchu » Sun Jun 12, 2011 8:27 pm

So what are peoples thoughts on the movement of the ash from the Chilean volcano 9000km away?
Over east what do you think the movements will be and for WA?

Interested in what ever feedback you can offer :)

I just looked at the BoM link you posted, Fu and did I read it wrong or will we see the ash cloud?

some links on the ash cloud

The sat loop showing the ash cloud. The dark red and green areas are the ones to watch although the light green area is what has shut down Tassie and Southern airspace.

I think what is interesting is that it might affect WA from the west while we are watching from the east.
It has shown up a while back over the mid Indian.
Looks like the main part to the east is now travelling back east away from NZ.

Best we keep an eye to the west over the coming weeks.

At best as far as seeing the ash cloud, maybe a few ripper sunsets would be the most we'd notice of it?
