  • France, hot on the trail of volcanic ash

    To ensure the safety of air routes in the event of volcanic eruption, the French national meteorological service has just obtained the LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging), a unique detection system in Europe.

  • “AVOID” : the volcanic ash detection system

    In 2010 the eruption of an Icelandic volcano paralyzed air traffic for six days. Due to the high concentration in the atmosphere of volcanic ash which can damage jet engines, more than 100,000 flights were cancelled. Today, a new radar system could overcome this problem.
