Eyafjallajokull's eruption might not yet have ended or be ending yet. The vent in the western crater still produces small magma explosions and some ash, and a new crater has formed around the vent. Tremor had strongly increased over the past days, but then descreased again. Scientists continue to monitor the state of the volcano closely. [more]

It seems that the eruption of Eyafjallajökull volcano has finally ended. While there is still a considerable steam plume rising from the crater, no fresh ash or lava emissions have been observed since yesterday (23 May). The measured heat flow from the crater is low and seismic activity has continued to decrease as well. [more]
