Shifting winds blew the volcanic plume from Chile’s Puyehue-Cordón Volcano Complex in different directions in early July 2011. On July 8, 2011, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite observed the plume blowing toward the east-southeast (top). On July 2, 2011, MODIS on NASA’s Aqua satellite observed the plume blowing toward the northwest (bottom).
Volcanic plumes can contain a combination of ash, steam, and gases invisible to the human eye. The light color of the plumes in these images suggests that the visible components in the plumes are a mixture of water vapor and some ash. Ash already deposited by this eruption coats the landscape east of Puyehue-Cordón in beige.
Unlike the soft ash from wildfires, volcanic ash consists of jagged particles of rock and glass. Abrasive, slightly corrosive, and capable of conducting electricity when wet, volcanic ash can complicate breathing, coat vegetation and leave it inedible, even destroy machinery. Planes flying into volcanic ash clouds can experience rapid engine failure.
Volcanic ash released by this volcano in early July continued to cause difficulty in parts of the Southern Hemisphere. Agence France-Presse reported that the volcanic plume disrupted air travel not only in South America, but also Australia and New Zealand. Meanwhile, provinces in southwestern Argentina were in a state of emergency because of widespread damage from the ash layer deposited by Puyehue-Cordón.
