Photo Gallery of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull Volcano

Eyjafjallajokull Volcano 510

Just days ago… Lightning flashes within a cloud of volcanic matter as it
rises from the erupting Eyjafjallajokull volcano

The volcano has now simmered to 80 per cent of its intensity, but scientists are warning that earth tremors could cause an even larger eruption at a neighbouring crater.
An eruption at the Katla volcano would be ten times stronger and shoot higher and larger plumes of ash into the air than its smaller neighbour.
The two volcanoes are side by side in southern Iceland, about 12 miles apart, and thought to be connected by a network of magma channels.
Katla is buried under one of Iceland’s largest glaciers, the Myrdalsjokull, which is 500m deep.
This means it has more than twice the amount of ice than the current eruption has burned through, threatening a new and possibly longer aviation standstill across Europe.
