New eruptions from Iceland's Eyjafjallajoekull volcano have produced a 1600 km-wide ash cloud over the Atlantic. The brownish plume, travelling east and then south, is clearly visible in stark contrast to white clouds framing this Envisat image from 6 May.
Plots of the planned ERS-2 SAR acquisitions for the coming week are available here.

Earth Observation Events
28 June 2010 - 2 July 2010
The 2010 European Space Agency Living Planet Symposium follows the previous successful ENVISAT Symposia in Montreux (2007), Salzburg (2004), Gothenburg (2000), Florence (1997), Hamburg (1993) and Cannes (1992). The Symposium will provide an opportunity to present results from missions in exploitation (ERS-2, ENVISAT, GOCE, SMOS, CRYOSAT, Third Party Missions) and to introduce future ESA missions (GMES Sentinels, Earth Explorers, meteorological missions) and national EO missions.
Earth Observation Resources
A new website has been designed and launched for EO Education and Training. This website aims to provide a single portal that supplies information about a wide range of activities in the field of Earth Observation education, training and capacity building and enables access to resources produced in their framework. The scope of these activities ranges from high level training in state-of-the-art processing for the next generation of Principal Investigators to more general outreach activities and Earth Observation education for schools.
