|Washington VAAC - Volcanic Ash Advisories||After a strong eruption, volcanic ash will stand out against the background of low clouds, cirrus clouds (composed of ice), and cloud-free regions in satellite imagery. This text product is created referencing infrared, visible and multi-spectral satellite imagery along with other guidance. The written text message incorporates what can currently be seen in imagery, pilot reports, observatory information, forecast trends and other available information. |
