The Horse at Denver is quite intriguing... News Reports in the UK said that the ash plume isn't rising as high can anyone concur?

What I don't understand is that the ash might be significantly reducing in volume but what is going on inside the volcano(s) itself is increasing, look at those graphs!

www.simnet.is...

and

hraun.vedur.is...

what is happening there? is that more magma movement deep down coming to the surface, is she gonna blow big style or is this normal behaviour?

The more dense ashcloud from yesterday should be covering half of the UK about this time:

new ash cloud

Here's the latest on Katla:

Locals Believe Katla Volcano in Iceland Near Eyjafjallajokull Will Erupt in Seven Days
The eruptions and ash disturbance from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano might be waking up its neighbor, Katla. If this is the case, the results could be globally devastating. Activity at Katla has risen 200% in the last two days.

Were does Laki play into all this? Im at work and different volcano's keep being mentioned. I thought it was Laki that posed the potential climate changing... doomsday type mini scenario?

I don't know Ian. From reports it seems Katla poses the most imminent danger at this point. Laki has a history of causing major damage, but right now it's not the most pressing issue.


Laki volcano erupted in 1783, sending massive amounts of lava, ash and poisonous gases into the air for eight months. Much larger than Eyjafjallajökull's eruption, the Laki blast killed half of Iceland's livestock and triggered a famine that, along with fluorine poisoning, killed one-quarter of Iceland's population.

Laki did indeed cause such devastation, but it's important to remember that the flourine content of the eruption materials is being monitored, and we'd likely be warned well in advance not to let livestock graze in poisoned areas, and not to eat any poisoned livestock. (People really didn't understand what was going on in the 1700s.)

Edited to add informative wikipedia link:
en.wikipedia.org...

Again, this is Laki and not Katla. Also, many of these effects (even the widespread volcanic fog) could be gotten around if we understand what is happening early enough and take precautions. It must have been absolutely horrific to be alive at that time and I'm grateful I'm here now.
