Eyjafjallajökull's 2010 eruption
Eyjafjallajökull's dramatic 2010 eruption led to an extended shutdown of airspace in Europe and the North Atlantic, causing travel chaos for millions. The new lidar network being installed by Raymetrics for the UK's Met Office will provide crucial new information on the dispersion of volcanic ash in the atmosphere, meaning that safe routes for aircraft can be set.
