Luck in Iceland with research into the ash plume from Grímsvötn volcano:
The IMO has a mobile weather radar on loan from the Italian Civil Response Authorities. When Grimsvötn erupted it was placed near the village Kirkjubæjarklaustur, about 80 km from the volcano. The weather radar is used to monitor changes in the height of the volcanic plume, but those are indicative of the strength of the eruption.
The mobile weather radar helps understand the size and direction of the ash plume, without having to get too close.

Source: Update on volcanic activity in Grímsvötn - Iceland Meteorological Office. I am a fan of Iceland, I want to go visit it again some day.
