This time the weather was a little better overall than last year. However, when remote sensing things are a little bit more complex when looking for the 'perfect' measurement weather. This year, we were lucky, not too many optically thick clouds which cover the summit and in general a good plume location and direction. Below is a photo taken from La Montagnola of the South East Craters. Unfortunately Etna decided not to wake up fully during my visit, oh well, that just means I may get to go back sooner! Must keep an eye on those webcams!
