Volcanic ash and the impact on aircraft operational capability in civil aviation
Summary:
In this paper there has been use of the eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull which occurred in May and April of 2010, as a case study in order to describe the problem of disruptive narrative and the impact that a volcano can have in civil aviation. Thus, there has been a thorough analysis about the volcanic ash, the volcanic eruption, the prediction and precautions that need to be taken in order to avoid difficult circumstances as those described in the case study. Furthermore, the impact of volcanic ash and radioactive materials that are released during a volcanic eruption is also examined so there is a deeper understanding in of the results and aftermath of such an eruption as the one described in the case study. Apart from that the economic impact and the trade difficulties and delays are also mentioned and explained so there is a full scope description of the negative results a volcanic eruption can have such as in the case of the Icelandic volcano.
