Here's Looking @ Earth... Infusion Of Icelandic Ash (EUMETSAT)

EUMETSAT’s Meteosat-9 geostationary meteorological satellite observed the ash from the volcanic eruption in Iceland. This image from three channels of Meteosat-9's Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVERI), taken at 06:00 UTC on April 15th, shows the jet stream at 300 hPa (10 kilometres high), with the volcanic cloud in black as ash is mixed with ice particles. A loop of the volcanic eruption has also been placed on EUMETSAT’s website (www.eumetsat.int).
