Infrasound will warn pilots of possible eruptions

A team of U.S. researchers suggested investigate infrasound emitted by the eruption of volcanoes, to prevent a possible accident aviapilotov to avoid getting in Ash cloud.

Erupting volcano ash clouds reach heights that are flying passenger planes, emissions can easily lead to serious engine damage.

American experts led by Professor Florida Institute of Technology professor Fredrik Ham and the University of Hawaii at Manoa Milton Garcés, with financial support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration plans to prevent situations like the one that occurred in 2010 due to the eruption of the Icelandic volcano.

Experts studied several volcanoes in the United States, Latin America and the Pacific. The data collected will be used for "coaching" infrasound classification system based on artificial neural networks. In addition to the volcano, the technology can be applied to other natural disasters — earthquakes, tsunamis, avalanches, meteors, creating a certain turbulence in the atmosphere, says MigNews.
