Figure 5

Calculated source depth values z for 42 Eyjafjallajökull pulses. The blue data points represent the vertical positions of the intersection points of straight trajectories within individual pulses, calculated with Equation (6) according to the TIA method outlined in Figure 2b. In addition, the resulting range of source depth values derived by the alternative CAM approach (see Figure 2a) is plotted, marked by dashed green lines. Both findings coincide and suggest an ejecta source depth of approximately 51 m (red line).
