Is there any very dangerous volcanoes that could erupt soon in Iceland due to this eruption? I mean like an eruption that would even hurt the UK or Noway?

The caldera that is right by the one that just erupted caused a volcanic winter in the 1700s and caused the famines in France at the same time. In history if the Eyjafjallajokull erupts the second one ALWAYS goes with it.

Now I know where Alphabits soup was created...can anyone pronounce that?

with how big a deal it could be if this triggers the other volcano its amazing how this hasn't gotten more attention. So amazing is the power of nature.

My apologies for asking, but I was wondering what type of volcano is the Iceland one classified as? From geography class I remembered there were 2 types, a slow flowing magma, gentle puking type, and another fast flowing, eruption bomb type.

I can't access videos here from China, but would like to know more..

I live in the North Norway, Svolvær, and this morning there were red dust on the deck of the boat when we went out.

I think it must be volcanic dust.... Around 1500 km away....

They've closed down most of the air-traffic here in Norway this morning, due to all the ashes. Seems they have done this in most of Northern Europe today. It's spreading!

Just talked to a friend on the phone , he told me that there hasnt been an eruption there for 200 years and usually Katla follows.

What is Katla?

Will this eruption melt the glacier? What is the latest news?

It looks like Etna has been active also. Sorry if this has already been posted. The update is dated Weds, Apr 14, but the actual data says the ash eruption occurred on Apri 8th.

Well it looks like the UK is going to be affected by the ash as well

Oh well it's screwed up UK airspace now

Airline passengers have been facing disruption across the UK after warnings of an ash cloud from a volcanic eruption in Iceland.

In Scotland, all airports were shut and there were disruptions at many others including Manchester, Liverpool, Stansted, Newcastle and Birmingham.

Never in my life have I seen this happen before, it's exciting!

As you can see it is mildly explosive type volcano.

All Scottish and NI airports closed. Others in England also experiencing flight disruption. Going to be some stunning sunrises/sunsets!

Edit: you edited your post to say the same, just as I was posting

I'll throw in a link to the satelite 0 should be worth watching over the course of today.

Yup I just got out of bed to make an edit as I got the news on lol

It's all exciting though, never seen this happen before.

Will we get a big smoke plume or is it too high to see or invisible to human eye ?

Not sure we'll see any obvious plume here, but if you knew where and when to look there were dust clouds visible from that big Siberian eruption through much of last summer. I'll certainly be out with the camera and sunset - so long as the current stratiform (low level) cloud clears!

btw on the infared sat image, higher clouds show as being whiter

Well, I have to admit when someone said we live in interesting times I'm not sure they envisioned things like this happening..

This has become quite a serious issue here in Ireland and UK as most flights in Ireland and UK have been cancelled today due to the plume of volcanic ash spreading in the above atmosphere, major travel disruptions are expected and there is uncertainty as to how long this will last, this has made news headlines here in Ireland on all our radio stations eg Morning Ireland on RTE

What is most disturbing is that there is no clear knowledge of how long this volcanic ash will affect air services it will certainly be curious to see how this develops.

just a question to you, mister down under..

are you and others down there getting worried or is there talk about your volcanoes going off since so many earthquakes and volcanoes are going off everywhere?

i know alot of your volcanoes are inactive.. but you've had your share of earthquakes..
like that one on your east coast of the north island that levelled a whole city.. forgot the name..

whats the vibe down there?

ps - love your country.. was there for awhile awhile ago.
