Chile and Argentina - June 13th, 2011

Close-up of Volcano

Ash from the 2011 Puyehue volcanic eruption, which began on June 4th, spreads from Chile, across Argentina, and out over the Atlantic Ocean.

The ash has precipitated over the Argentine cities of Villa la Angostura, Bariloche and the northern part of Chubut province.

Here, the ash cloud veils reservoirs by the confluence of the Neuquén and Limay Rivers in Neuquén province.  It reaches eastward to Bahía Blanca, and northeast to Buenos Aires, where it can be seen in the skies over the sediment-laden Rio de la Plata estuary.
