Goodmorning volcano lovers, Here some news:

According to geophysicist Steinunn Jakobsdottir, the quakes could be a sign of a new vent about to open. The volcano already has three vents, but only the one on the northernmost edge is still erupting.

Some moments for all of you clear your webcam eyes and read a little story.

Volcanic Ash Update — 0254 on Tuesday 11 May 2010
Recent information from the Icelandic Met Office shows that Eyjafjallajokull continues to erupt, to heights of 13,000 to 16,000ft, occasionally 20,000ft (4-5, occasionally 6km). The ash cloud is currently heading in a southerly direction. Residual ash plumes are evident on satellite imagery, one moving south-southeast just to the west of southwest Ireland, another moving northeast from the Atlantic towards Iberia. Issued at 0250 on Tue 11 May 2010

So a pic from Nasa, beautyfull img.




The plume of ash and steam rising from the Eyjafjallajökull volcano reached five to six kilometers (17,000 to 20,000 feet) into the atmosphere on May 10, 2010, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image.

So we are doomd to watch the webcam of Eyjafjallajokull


Eyjafjallajokull Delays Silent Hill On Wii

Mindscape has announced that a few Wii and DS titles will be delayed, due to the ash cloud from Eyjafjallajokull volcano in south-east Iceland. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Karaoke Revolution and Puzzle Chronicles will be delayed until the cloud of volcanic ash subsides and flights resume.

Just want to explain something about posting pictures.

Pictures posted by BerkyGal, Moorf and others are nice and lovely but they also help us all to compare changes.
I often scroll back in this thread to look at older pics for changes in icecap, steam-vents and how intense the actual ongoing eruption is compared to previous days/weeks.

In the Hvol cam there is some white little spot South-Westish under the mouth of the plume. I haven't seen it before.
My guess is sun reflection on Ice but will keep a look at it.

I tried looking at your pics but I don't see any person anywhere.

Can you point to where he/she is ?

We have weird sun weather... Earth weather... Tectonic activity... Vulcanism... Old fault reactivation southern hemispheric specific.... Something seems to be reacting with our solar system...


Yes there could be something strange reacting with our solar system.... A brown dwarf star

"Brown Dwarf Affecting Pluto, We Are Binary System?"

If you want to check out the earthquakes that may indicate activation of addition volcanoes. see earthquakes during the last 48 hours

I've just logged on to the Hvolsvelli cam and there looks to be a huge steam plume to the very left of the image - is it a plume or is it cloud? Seems to being generated v. quickly and textured like a plume...

I'm pretty sure its low lying cloud in between the two peaks (Eyjafjallajökull and Katla) as you could see it on the Katla cam last night.

Edit: Thats a solid grey plume though, wow!

I have a question for the experts, we all know that huge eruptions cause the earth to cool, but what if this much smaller eruption continued for years, wouldn't that also cool the earth to some degree? (continuous over one huge mega eruption)

Thanks


BTW: This site is excellent, I'm really enjoying this thread and all the pics people put up pointing things out that might have changed etc, really cool and informative

Yep, you're right, now it's built up it's cloud.. oh well


She sure is chucking it out today.. dirty mess it is, too. There was ashfall on Katla cam earlier

The clouds were deceptive. At first I thought they could been steam vents as well. But there is a new steam vent. On the Hvolsvelli webcam you can see a fine white jet of steam coming from a short distance in front of the main grey plume. The geologist mentioned a new vent may be opening, and I think this may be the area they were talking about.

I've read that this volcano will not change global temps even if it continues for many months. It's a relatively small volcano.

No change in temperature with this erpution, volcano is way too small for it.

Nah,
a link is better lol than my usual crap

I agree. The ash probably will have a miniscule effect, probably more than outweighed by the 100,000 or so 'plane flights that didn't happen because of the ash.

Remember the 3 degree average temperature rise over the continental US after it was declared a no-fly zone following 9/11?

The wind seems to be pushing the plume a little more southeast this afternoon.

Well, this is marvelous. First some public school twat get's Eastenders cancelled, then my wife chooses to watch women giving birth rather than letting me watch "The Birth of Science" and now my only other viewing option is obscured by low cloud.

Does anyone know the meaning of the different coloured lines shown on the ash maps ?

Ash Map



Am answering my own question here.

FL on the maps refers to Flight Level

SFC/FL200 means surface up to 20,000 ft ... red outline
FL200/FL350 means 20,000ft to 35,000 ft .... green and blue outline



Presumably within the red zone planes cannot take off or land, and where the green or blue zone is, planes already in flight would have to divert around.
