And so another day begins in Iceland...

It sure looks hot and steamy on the glacier from what can be currently seen on the Poro cam (still a bit dark/gloomy) and WHOA what a big, black plume she has again today!

I'm wondering if my beloved arch has gone
because it looks like lots of action on the glacier - huge plume

Amazing in-cloud lightning on Poro now, too!!

No idea yet - suspense is killing me - the whole area seems to look so different - even the ash plume seems to have moved (although it probably hasn't!). Sat here staring at several screens waiting to see which one lightens up sufficiently first!!

At some points it looks like the entire slope below and to the right of the crater is pock-marked with steam vents - but then it's early morning and it could be clouds / fog formations.. I'll reserve judgement until sun up lol

Will someone please confirm that I'm not going mad and that there is a big ash plume now on the, ummm, left of the top of the glacier????

Are you talking about the poro camera? I see steam or something waaay down on the left bottom that I don't remember before.

Yes on Poro but at top left of the glacier - coming from behind the rise.

Lots of steam on the glacier itself, but lots of cloud, fog hanging around too. Seems that wall of ice is still keeping the lava flow back from melting the arch.

Ok I see what you mean. I had to find it on the flir cam. I can barely even see it on that, though.

Goodday afternoon everybody. here the official report of 11 may:

Eruption in Eyjafjallajökull - Status Report: 15:00 GMT, 11 May 2010
Icelandic Meteorological Office and Institute of Earth Sciences, University of Iceland


Compiled by: Steinunn S. Jakobsdóttir, Gunnar Sigurðsson, Haraldur Eiríksson, Sigurlaug Hjaltadóttir, Björn Oddsson, Sigrún Hreinsdóttir.

Based on: IMO seismic monitoring; IES-IMO GPS monitoring; IMO hydrological data; IMO weather radar measurements, ATDnet – UK Met. Offices lightning detection system, MERIS satellite images and observations from airkraft.

Eruption plume:
Height (a.s.l.): 5 - 6 km / 17,000 ft - 20,000 ft.
Heading: Southsoutheast.
Colour: Grey.
Tephra fallout: No reports, but clearly seen on video cameras.
Lightning: Nine lightning were recorded on the ATDnet.
Noises: No reports.

Meltwater:
Low water discharge at Gígjökull.

Conditions at eruption site:
Observations from air and web cameras show similar activity to yesterday. In the afternoon there was an increase in explosive activity, giving darker and slightly higher plume.

Seismic tremor:
Slight increase in the lower frequency bands.

Earthquakes:
Sixteen earthquakes were located since yesterday, mostly at depths of 18 – 20 km and magnitude less than Ml 2.

GPS deformation:
Small displacements towards the center of Eyjafjallajökull volcano but irregular oscillations in the vertical component of a station closest to the volcano.

Overall assessment:
No major changes are seen in the activity, but small variation can still be expected. The ash plume increased slightly in the afternoon. Presently there are no indications that the eruption is about to end.

And the official report from Meteorological Office UK

Iceland Volcano Update
1218 BST on Tuesday, 11 May 2010


Latest information received from the Icelandic Meteorological Office indicates that the explosive activity from the Eyjafjallajökull volcano is continuing, with the ash plume reaching heights of up to around 18,000 ft. The Icelandic Met Office state that there are no signs that the eruption is about to end, with the volcanic eruption remaining dynamic.

Winds are expected to blow from a mainly north or north easterly direction over the next few days, with most of the ash cloud likely to stay over the Atlantic Ocean and close to western parts of the British Isles. As a result NATS continues to advise aircraft about airspace restrictions affecting transatlantic flights, allowing them to cross the Atlantic safely. Recent weather patterns mean that the ash cloud has drifted across some parts of central and southern Europe, leading to disruption.

As the volcanic activity changes, the Met Office will continue to provide frequently updated information to NATS and CAA about the dispersion of the volcanic ash, in line with the new engine criteria set by the CAA and the aviation industry.

Any decisions on airspace closures are the responsibility of CAA and further information on the impacts of this increased activity should be sought from them.

They say always: It's all about the money
Some people make money of everything, so do these people of Iceland. Good finding


For some businesses in Iceland, the Eyjafjallajokull volcano has had a positive impact and been a great boost for Icelandic tourism and entrepreneurship.
A small Icelandic company has collected ash from the Iceland volcano, filtered, dried and bottled it into small resealable glass containers ready to sell. The box can be opened so you can feel the texture and smell of the latest work of nature from ‘The Land of Fire and Ice’.
The glass containers of volcanic ash are the hottest souvenirs from Iceland right now and consequently are available in most tourist shops in downtown Reykjavik, as well as online at Iceland’s premier online store, Nordic Store.

The Nordic Store is a leading online shop in Iceland that focuses on providing and selling the Internet shopper with the biggest selection of Icelandic products. The products on sale range from clothes, jewellery, music, DVDS, maps, travel guides, books, arts and crafts, health and beauty, souvenirs, and even food and beverages.

To purchase some genuine Iceland volcano ash visit www.nordicstore.com

And some news about airtravel, and they said something about: although it has been noted that there are several other volcanoes being felt.

Iceland Volcano Eruption 2010 Eyjafjallajokull Ash Delays Air Travel
May 12th, 2010

Iceland Volcano Eruption 2010 Eyjafjallajokull Ash Delays Air Travel. The volcanic eruption in Iceland has continued to be a problem. Eyjafjallajokull has been spewing up ash for the past few weeks, and back in April it even caused widespread flight cancellations in Europe. Although flights in many areas are restored, the eruption has caused flight delays once again.

Today, Wednesday, May 12 2010 the Wall Street Journal reports that flights in and around Europe will be under capacity by about 500, with the hardest hit flights being Trans-Atlantic and also flights between Spain and the Balearic islands.

The eruption at Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland is slowing, although the ash production continues. Many area residents are reporting that they still hear the explosions of the volcano. There’s no word on when activity will end, although it has been noted that there are several other volcanoes being felt.

Just a short revisit of what a volcano is:

Stratovolcanoes (majority of volcanoes except for Hawaii and possibly iceland) - lava tends to be thicker (more viscous) and flow slowly
Shield volcanoes (Hawaiian volcanoes and possibly Iceland) - lava tends to be more liquidy (less viscous) and flows fast

Other volcanoes (see Wiki)
en.wikipedia.org...

So the Iceland volcano is a stratovolcano

The ash cloud appears to have grown massivly on the hvo cam.

I'm on a trans atlantic flight tomorrow morning
