This learning module from the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research will help students learn more about volcanic ash. The module begins with information on Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull Volcano, which erupted in 2010 and disrupted air travel in Europe; users may then learn about other similar historic volcanic events. A course description, objectives, and bibliography are also included. This interactive online learning module would be a great addition to earth science or geology coursework; instructors may choose to assign completion of the online module to students independent of classwork, as the module is very easy to follow and provides a great deal of in-depth information on the topic. A print-friendly version, media gallery and technical notes are also available on the website. Users must create a free log-in in order to view or utilize the site.
