News and activity updates from Eyjafjallajökull volcano (Iceland)

Eyjafjallajøkull volcano (Iceland), eruption update: increasing explosive acivity, no signs of eruption ending

The activity at Eyjafjallajøkull is increasing.
The explosive activity has increased and effusive activity has decreased during the last two days, resulting in a a higher eruption column to up to 9km (30,000 ft) with increased tephra fallout around the volcano, which is now almost completely black.
Considerable ashfall occurs at Þykkvabæjarklaustur in Álftaver (at a distance of 65-70 km).
The lava flows from the summit volcano has reached a length of more than 4 km to the north, and spreads at 500 m a.s.l. The lava tongue is about 200 m wide and lava channels that join at the tongue are about 30-60 m wide.
Icelandic scientis relate the increasing activity to a new intrusion of fresh magma into the conduit as interpreted from a series of earthquakes under the volcano that have been detected to migrate upwards over the past days.

The eruption in Iceland has increased again. After large explosions on 3 May at 14h30 produced ash plumes of up 5-6 km height, parts of this ash are now drifting over Ireland and Britain, forcing again a partial closure of airspace and cancellation of numerous flights this morning. ... Lees alle

No significant changes are to be reported from Eyjafjallajøkull's eruption. Mild effusive and explosive activity continues at the summit, ash plume elevations and magma discharge levels remain similar to the preceding seven days of activity. Lava continues to flow north from the eruption site and down the Gígjökull glacier. Lees alle

The eruption at Eyafjallajökull continues. As the Icelandig Met Office reports, ash plume elevations and magma discharge levels remain similar to the preceding four days of activity. Lava continues to flow north from the eruption site toward the head of the Gígjökull glacier. Despite light ash-fall occurring up to 45 km west of the eruption site, the explosive activity and ash production represents a fraction of conditions during the height of the eruption (14-17 April). There are no measurable indications that the eruption is about to end. ... Lees alle

The eruption at Eyafjallajökull volcano on Iceland continues at a similar rate as during the past days, with strombolian and phreatomagmatic activity at the summit, generating ash plumes reaching 2-5 km height. Deflation of the volcano indicates that the eruption might be nearing its end. ... Lees alle

As our team members Jorge Santos and Marco Fulle report from on location, the eruption seems to be declining. Since 20 April, it consists of separated bursts of lava from the summit crater, accompanied by loud shock waves rattling windows at up to 20km distance. On one occasion, Jorge managed to photograph such a shock wave near the crater. ... Lees alle
