Volcano Observatory Notices for Aviation (VONA)
Volcano Observatory Notices for Aviation (VONA) are succinct, plain-English messages aimed at dispatchers,
pilots, and air-traffic controllers to inform them of volcanic unrest and eruptive activity that could produce
ash-cloud hazards. VONA are issued by U.S. Volcano Observatories when a volcano's Aviation Color Code is changed
(up or down) or when significant change in volcanic activity occurs within a color-code level.
