Apparently Eyja has produced a 22,000ft cloud

(Another wonderful Google translation)


Jarðvísindamenn in TF SIF, a Coast Guard plane flying over Eyjafjallajökull, say that big sigdæld be around as Gigi is on offer hábungu glacier. Earth scientists speculated that the depression of the circumference of 1 km x 600 meters and the depression to grow rapidly.

In the last minutes has been little change. Just over nine hole they believed themselves to be 200 meters. Though not shown in a fire or exploded, as it is cloudy. TF SIF is equipped with instruments that see through clouds. Earth scientists speculated that the crack is about 500 meters. It is ash fall to the east and it closer to Fimmvörðuhálsi. Gosmökkurinn has risen and is now at 22 thousand feet.

Only the top crater eruption but not in the south side. Jelly is a glacial river, 1000 cubic meters per second and growing.

Göngubrúin the lagoon is gone and the flood has multiplied from Gígjökli. It almost halfway to Markarfljótsbrú. There are people in cars should get the Hvolsvöll first. Civil ask those who were against a diagnosis in Landeyjum to do the same. They are encouraged to bring an immediate Hvolsvöll.

In the lágflugi Pétursey and west of Eyjafjöllum saw Geologists in TF SIF that no changes were on the water course. Flood appears to go north and down Markarfljót ounces.


Look out for the Jelly!!

Guy on other thread saying:



Add : Apparently this eruption is about 10-20 times more powerful then the recent one. The "crack" is now about 2 km length. They are expecting a lot of flooding.

Good thread.

BTW - are we only seeing the action from the Fimm-wotsit cam now - I don't recognise the other views or see action on them but can see the smoke/steam from Fimm one

The webcam on Valahnjúkur is intermittent right now, as it's being reset to look at Eyjafjallajökull glacier.

It'll be interesting to see how deep it gets - I'm keeping eye on the slightly raised area to right of screen... to see if/when contours disappear.

The ash pieces themselves appear to be getting bigger judging from those passing by the cam.

Not good news on the tremors. The plot dropped for a short while but it is now way above the original.

What would the implications for the northern hemisphere be if this thing really went right off? I mean, would it have a big impact across the North?

Noway closing down air traffic


- Weather forecasts show that Norway is not particularly favorable to. Right now the ash cloud reached northern Norway. It seems that it is South Norway, which will be worse the next day. The ash plume seems to cause problems through the weekend, "said Johnson VG online.

Håvard Breivik, security manager at Avinor Bodø Airport, confirmed that air traffic is closed in northern Norway.

- Air traffic is closed between Bodø and Tromsø. Consideration is ongoing for the air traffic between Bodø and Trondheim will be closed. The ash plume reached the coast of northern Norway, so we are taking no chances, "says Breivik told VG Nett.

It is currently unclear when the air traffic will be opened again.

Definitely. Stopping air traffic; Ash fallout; Sickness and even death from SO2 etc gasses - read about Laki (1783) for some of the potential effects, but this is NOT Laki.

Thanks Puterman.

I`m in Scotland, I have to say I am pretty scared atm, I dunno if I should be or not, but judging by the scandinavian news translations and the wiki page you linked me to, it seems like I should be.

I`m wondering why the bbc isnt reporting anything about the norwegians closing their airspace and the possibility of parts of the uk being affected tomorrow.??


Any ideas on that?

I don't think it is a major worry. First the large proportion of the output from the volcano is steam. Whilst there is ash of course, we are not talking about anything on the scale of Laki.

It probably will be an irritation to those who already have a respiratory condition, but I don't believe it will be worse than that. Scared? No I don't think you should be scared. Just be aware that it can cause complications for those who are already suffering.

I hope this will not worry you further. Here is the latest ash advisory from the Met Office. As to why the Beeb has not picked this up on UK TV - I don't know. It was on their world service as I posted the video above.

Here it is on the BBC web site
