Volcano Modelling with Google Earth

One of my former colleagues (and good mate) at King’s, Dr. Peter Webley, is now working at The University of Alaska, Fairbanks. Pete is a volcanologist, with a particular interest in the remote monitoring and modelling of volcanic phenomena. Recently, he’s been working on the integration of Puff, a computer model of ash cloud formations, with Google Earth to improve communication between scientists and the public at large. Pretty cool stuff – checkout videos and animations here or even run your own volcano model here.
