Volcanic eruption clouds (eruption column, pyroclastic flow, and umbrella cloud) and cumulonimbus are similar phenomena in the atmosphere. Models that can precisely reproduce the physical processes in such phenomena and accurate observations have been required. Recently, the developments of remote sensing such as weather radars and weather satellites are remarkable, and they are being adopted for volcanic eruption monitoring. In this session, we will discuss the modelling and the observations of eruption clouds and cumulonimbus from the viewpoint of meteorology, volcanology, remote sensing and other related fields. Approaches from environmental meteorology, in-situ observation of rainfall/ashfall, geology, and material science are also welcomed.
