SUMMARY: By combining the data from four separate instruments, NASA scientists are able to study the Earth's volcanoes in tremendous detail. Most recently, Italy's Mt. Etna was captured mid-eruption using the instruments on board the Terra and Aqua spacecraft, and the data will help the scientists understand the complex behaviour of volcanic plumes and the effects the eruptions have on the environment.
