Chaiten Eruption enters second month

Chaiten MODIS 5/31
If you needed any evidence that Chaiten is still erupting quite vigorously, just check out the MODIS image taken on 5/31 (above). The eruptive column is still delivering ash across southern Chile, over the Andes and into Argentina. This eruption just keeps on impressing me with its duration and magnitude – this is one for the ages (well, human ages).

  1. Well, first off, I am no expert on the effect of ash on humans, other than it is definitely not a good thing to breathe it in. I’m not quite sure where you mean by “Aretnina” (anybody else help out here?), but I’d expect your son would have to be pretty close (100 km maybe?) from the volcano to suffer any rapidly ill effects. However, that being, you should always check with a medical professional about such concerns!

  2. My son has asthma and will be on a singing on a concert tour in Aretnina June 16- july 3- Any idea how we can find out the air quality for heath concerns ?
    Thank you so much !
