Sensitivity of OMI SO2 measurements to variable eruptive behaviour at Soufrière Hills volcano, Montserrat

Abstract:

Since 2004, the satellite-borne Ozone Mapping Instrument (OMI) has observed sulphur dioxide (SO2) plumes during both quiescence and effusive eruptive activity at Soufrière Hills Volcano, Montserrat. On average, OMI detected a SO2plume 4–6 times more frequently during effusive periods than during quiescence in the 2008–2010 period. The increased ability of OMI to detect SO2during eruptive periods is mainly due to an increase in plume altitude rather than a higher SO2emission rate. Three styles...
