Volcan Colima drone video, Mexico

The steaming dome atop Mexico’s Volcan Colima is shown in video footage taken by a drone aircraft (pictures of the drone are at http://www.hydra-technologies.com/galeria.html). Scroll down to see the video. You get the point after the first couple of minutes. This method of surveilance is pretty cool. We don’t need it at Baker, of course, as long as John Scurlock is willing to spend his own money to investigate our volcano from his little yellow airplane.

To see other video footage of Colima eruptions, go to the Colima website run by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
