    You can personally monitor volcano lightning in realtime at the U of Washington VLF detector network site:  http://flash3.ess.washington.edu/USGS/Global/

    (Also storm lightning: http://webflash.ess.washington.edu/ )

    If this works out, its an awesome way of gauging the potential size of the disruption that an eruption will cause.

    It could be directly observed from space by weather satellites. (The most recent eruption in Mexico could be used to see if the theory holds true.)

  3. Uh, why would you ever use them for anything but metal album covers?? Seems like it’s the perfect fit to me.
