News and activity updates from Eyjafjallajökull volcano (Iceland)

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.

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.

Eyafjallajökull vulkaan wordt steeds meer rustige en misschien de uitbarsting komt tot een einde. Zoals de IJslandse Meteorological Office en het Instituut voor Aardwetenschappen bevestigen in hun meest recente bulletin, het magma uitvoer tarief is gedaald tot een geschatte 5 ton per seconde, ongeveer 10% van wat het had een week geleden en tijdens de piek fasen van activiteit geweest. De rookpluim gedaald tot 1.5-3.5 km en bevat relatief weinig ash. Over het geheel genomen is seismiek afgenomen. ...meer

The intensity of Eyafjallajökull's eruption has been decreasing. Observations from flights show that the eruption plume is light grey, with a small amount of ash and the height is 3-3.5 km/10,000-12,000 ft (a.s.l.), about half of what it had been a week ago.
Thu, 20 May 2010, 07:48
The intensity of Eyafjallajokull's eruption is slightly decreasing, although the ash plumes are still reaching 5-6 km (18,000-20,000 ft) height according to radar and pilot observations. However, it would be too early to conclude that this means that an end of the eruption is in sight.
Wed, 19 May 2010, 05:47
Eyjafjallajøkull continues to erupt. According to radar observations, the eruption plume has been mostly at 7 km (21,000 ft) height and drifting NW. It is estimated that the eruption output is as high s 200 tons per second. Ashfall in some areas of southern Iceland is becoming an increasing problem.

Extent of ash plume on 16 May 2010
The strong ash eruptions at Eyafjallajokull volcano continue, producing plumes of up to 7 km height. There are no signs that the eruption will end soon. ...meer

Ash over Europe on 15 May, 2010
The ash cloud from Eyafjallajökull's hightened activity in recent days has now reached the northern parts of British and Irish airspace. A no-fly zone has been imposed over parts of Northern Ireland, and no flights are going in or out of airports in Belfast or the Isle of Man.
Sat, 15 May 2010, 06:47
The eruption in Iceland continues with little changes. Eyafjallajokull volcano continues to emit dense graz ash reaching a height of 7 km (24,000 ft). Currently, the plume is drifting west and southwest, causing ashfall on the Vestmannaeyjar islands, Rangárþing eystra and in Reykjavík.
Fri, 14 May 2010, 05:08
The eruption at Eyjafjallajøkull volcano continues with little changes, although the strength of the ash emission has slightly increased again. The plume is now reaching 6-9 km altitude and carried in southerly directions by presently weak winds. ...meer
