Short summary
Remote sensing of the gaseous composition of non-eruptive, passively degassing volcanic plumes can be a tool for volcano monitoring. Here, we report on a field study that demonstrates the feasibility of remotely measuring the volcanic enhancements of carbon dioxide, hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen chloride, sulfur dioxide, and bromine monoxide in the plume of Mt. Etna using portable spectroscopic instrumentation sampling the plume several kilometers downwind of the source.
