The Sentinel-5P satellite can monitor sulphur dioxide, aerosol and ash emitted by volcanic eruPtions and follow its movement through the atmosphere.

Copernicus Sentinel-5P mission manager, Claus Zehner, said, “This volcanic eruption demonstrates how Sentinel data can support different operational Copernicus services.
