Different colours represent different concentration rates with red high and blue low. Exact concentrations are not given because they are dependent on the amount of material emitted from the volcano. Interpretation of the actual concentration values requires reliable knowledge of the rate at which the material is erupted.

NATS have stated that after a review of the latest MET office information the current restrictions in place preventing flights in the airspace over England and Wales will remain in place until 07:00 on 17th April. From 19:00 today restrictions will be lifted in parts of Scottish airspace. Travellers are still advised to contact their airline before travel.
