Plume-top altitude time series of the volcanic plume during the eruption of Grímsvötn in Iceland 21-28 May 2011. The altitude was estimated from weather radar echo top data from two weather radars, Keflavik and Klaustur. Keflavik radar is a fixed position C-band weather radar close to Keflavik International Airport, at 64°01.583'N, 22°38.150'W. The height of the antenna is 47 m a.s.l. and the distance to Grímsvötn volcano is 257 km. Klaustur radar is a mobile X-band weather radar located close to Kirkjubaejarklaustur, at 63°46.500'N, 17°57.817'W. The height of the antenna is also 47 m a.s.l. and the distance to Grímsvötn volcano is 75 km.
