New eruption in Eyjafjallajökull

Thursday 15, April 2010

 

New eruption in Eyjafjallajökull

 

After a few days of quiet in Eyjafjallajökull volcano, a new and much more forceful eruption has begun west of Fimmvörðuháls, under the ice-cap.

 

 

The eruption is below the highest peak of Eyjafjallajökull, at the southern rim of the caldera.

 

A plume rises at least 8 km into the air. No lava is seen yet but melt-water flows both north and south of the mountain.
