News and activity updates from Eyjafjallajökull volcano (Iceland)

Eyjafjallajøkull volcano (Iceland), eruption update: increased explosive activity - new disruption of European air traffic

14:44 PM |
After a few days of milder activity, the explosions have again increased in intensity, creating ash plumes of 5-6 km height.
The Icelandic Met Office reports: "The crater is getting higher. Lava flow is low and not visible on cameras. In the afternoon there was a slight increase in explosive activity, which resulted in a higher plume for a while.
Seismic tremor has been similar for the past 3 days. A sequence of earthquakes started around 11:00 this morning at depths of 18 - 20 km and magnitude range 1 - 2. The earthquake sequence this morning indicates that magma is still flowing in from the mantle. Presently there are no indications that the eruption is about to end."

The ash clouds moved by different wind patterns to a strong southerly direction are now howering over SW Europe and parts of Morocco, forcing today the closure of airports in Spain and Morocco and cancellation of hundreds of flights.
