Volcanic Alerts Application Form

Parts of this website and accompanying services (such as the NOAA/CIMSS Volcanic Alert system) require an NOAA/CIMSS Volcanic Cloud Monitoring account to access. If you would like to obtain such an account, please fill out the application below.

Please note: applicants must be approved before they are given an account and not all applicants will be approved.

Due to the sensitive nature of near real-time content within the Volcanic Cloud Alerts, accounts will generally only be approved for trained professionals (e.g., VAAC meteorologists, aviation meteorologists, geophysicists, etc.). This Volcanic Cloud Alerting system is not designed for general public audiences and many requests will NOT be approved. We appreciate your understanding of the sensitive nature of near real-time Volcanic Cloud Alerts. The ‘Satellite Imagery’ tab contained on this website does not need an account and is viewable by all.

Please consult the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centers for official volcanic ash cloud advisories.
