  Name: Volcanic Ash Advisories
  Abbreviation: VAAC
  Description: The Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre uses satellite information, ground reports from volcanological agencies, pilot reports, meteorological knowledge and numerical models to track and forecast ash movements so that aircraft can fly around the airborne ash safely. The Centre operates 24 hours a day. In this site you can read a bit about our satellite detection techniques, browse our eruption image gallery, and look at some scientific and general publications about volcanic ash. For aviation users and researchers we also have an archive of past messages and we display any current advisories on the site.
