Mt. Redoubt Eruption Fallout

The eruption of the Mt Redoubt volcano was not just a “local” event in Alaska. Gasses and dust were injected into the upper levels of the atmosphere and are being carried by high altitude winds to the lower 48 states.

The NOAA/NASA image below was taken by a research satellite and shows a widespread area of sulfur dioxide from the eruption that has been transported from Alaska to the western U.S.


The satellite image above is proof that such events are truely global in scope.
