"The new LIDAR network will significantly improve our overall ability to monitor and forecast the distribution of volcanic ash over the UK. Our forecasts are used by partners at the National Air Traffic Service to make decisions on flight safety across UK airspace, based on the safety thresholds set by the Civil Aviation Authority and the International Civil Aviation Organisation."
