Abstract

The satellite images of volcanic clouds in Kyushu, Japan during September-November 1989 were studied in connection with the mountain site measurement of atmospheric qualities at Unzen-Nodake and the SO2 concentration data at Aso Volcano Museum. The images strongly indicate that many high concentration events of SO2 were the results of the long-range transport of volcanic gas from Mt. Aso and Mt. Sakurajima to these stations. Brief comments on the 2000 eruption of Miyake-jima volcano are added.
