The total amount of SO2 emitted by the El Reventador volcano is larger than that from Mount Etna by roughly a factor of 4. The smoke and ash plume covers as large an area, with quite large concentrations of sulphur dioxide close to the coast and lower values extending over the ocean. The analysis used data from ESA's GOME instrument on the ERS-2 satellite.
