Background

This section is aimed at helping people get some critical background guidance about volcanic clouds. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of this subject, parts of what you need to know are missing from any curriculum. Here are some of these background items. Send suggestions for other areas that aren't covered here, but should be.

Preparation--what do we need to learn/know?

Volcanology
Fluid mechanics
Meteorology--atmospheric science
Electricity/magnetism--radiative transfer
Surface chemistry
Remote sensing
