Dune-Ash is a Dune application providing an interactive simulation of the ash transport after a volcano eruption in Europe.
Step-by-step, one can position the volcano, draw a wind field, choose the strength of the ash spreading over Europe and finally watch the simulation live on screen.
You can obtain Dune-Ash in several ways: as a live CD, as pre-built Debian/Ubuntu packages, or in source code form.

Dune-Ash awarded as a winning module of the MPE Competition
We are proud to announce that Dune-Ash is a winning module of the Competition of Modules for the Open Source MPE Exhibition. Among 29 contributions Dune-Ash was awarded the second prize. The awarding ceremony took place on the opening of the MPE 2013 program at UNESCO headquarters in Paris on March 5th, 2013.
The competition is a part of the program Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 (MPE 2013), an initiative by the UNESCO, the IMU (International Mathematical Union>, and the EMS (European Mathematical Society).
This project was originally developed in June/July 2011 for the Freiburger Wissenschaftsmarkt (Freiburg Science Fair).
In 2012 it was extensively overhauled for the participation in the MPE 2013 competition. Especially the user interface was redesigned for a natural experience on touch screen monitors.
