Not that thrilled with it myself. I want desperately to see what the crater looks like now.

I will not let this thread die!

Flir cam is working again!

It won't die, at least not yet. ;-)

Getting the feeling she's venting some steam since two or three days. It's often hard to tell if it's a passing by cloud or steam from Eyja.
But when I look at Hvol cam right now it really looks like a small steam plume.

Robin posted on the YS thread he expected increased activity for the 25th of August and the 8th of September. Weird. Probably coincidence but...

Iceland volcano has cooled enough for snow to settle
Posted on22 August 2010. Tags: Eyjafjallajokull, heat, Iceland, snow, volcano, winter

The summit of South Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier is now covered in snow again following the recent volcanic eruption. The mountain has been grey with thick ash since the eruption this spring in the top crater between 14th April and 7th June.

The summit of South Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier is now covered in snow again following the recent volcanic eruption. The mountain has been grey with thick ash since the eruption this spring in the top crater between 14th April and 7th June.



After a particularly warm summer, the air over Iceland cooled down quickly just before the weekend as a northerly breeze took control. This allowed the temperature atop the country’s highest mountains to drop below freezing for the first time since the spring.

Although the top of Eyjafjallajokull is now white again with fresh snow, Visir.is reports that there is still no ice visible below 1,200 metres.

The hugely popular volcano webcams at www.mila.is are still active.

Aviation conference in Iceland to discuss impact of Eyjafjallajokull volcano
Posted on19 August 2010. Tags: Aviation conference, Aviation Training, Eyjafjallajokull Volcano, Keilir Aviation Academy, Olafur Ragnar Grimsson

Between September 15th and 16th 2010, aviation leaders, experts and policy-makers from all over the world will gather at Keflavik Airport in Iceland to discuss what lessons have been learnt from the Eyjafjallajokull eruption. The aviation conference, organised by the Keilir Aviation Academy in cooperation with ICAO, IATA and others, will also explore how technology, rules, regulations and aviation training can be improved to deal with volcanic eruptions accordingly in the future.

The Eyjafjallajokull and Aviation conference will cover topics such as; What happened at Eyjafjallajokull? Why was Europe’s airspace closed? What procedures were followed? What has been learnt? What are the effects of volcanic ash on airplanes and can they been reduced? What steps are to be taken, and by whom, to minimise the threats that volcanic ash poses to aviation?

Conference participants will discover how the aviation and science communities can work together to increase safety and efficiency in dealing with future eruptions. Confirmed speakers will come from the civil aviation authorities across Europe, Russia, China, the U.S., and the European Commission. In addition to aviation authority members, scientists from the University of Iceland, USGS, NASA NILU, and DLR will also be discussing the issues of volcanic eruptions and volcanic ash detection and distribution.

Risk of flash glacial flood in South Iceland

Posted on15 August 2010. Tags: eruption, Eyjafjallajokull, Iceland, mud, rain, weather

Due to extremely heavy rainfall predicted in South Iceland today, the risk of flooding from the Eyjafjallajokull glacier is considered high and such floods would be thick with mud and volcanic ash from this spring’s eruption.
According to the Icelandic Met Office, the band of rain will go directly over the Eyjafjallajoull glacier and all passage on to it has been temporarily prohibited – especially in valleys and gorges.

Drivers on Route 1 are also being advised to be extra careful, although it is may not be necessary to close the road even if a flash flood does occur.

Iceland volcano thanked for bumper wheat harvest

Posted on10 August 2010. Tags: Eyjafjallajokull, Iceland, summer, volcano, wheat

Wheat farmers in South Iceland are expecting a particularly good harvest this year. Some farmers hope to start harvesting at the beginning of next month, but most will wait until the middle of September.
Olafur Eggertsson from Thorvaldseyri, who is head of the Icelandic Wheat Growers’ Association, told RUV that this years crops are looking excellent. The warm and weather Iceland has been enjoying this summer has helped the wheat, and the lack of rain does not seem to have damaged the crops.
Eggertsson believes volcanic ash from this spring’s Eyjafjallajokull eruption probably has a big part to play in the good harvest. Although it caused havoc at the time, he explains that it adds nutrients to the soil and its colour causes the ground to better retain the sun’s heat.

Wheat farming is not especially common in Iceland; but some 450 farmers do grow the useful crop on a total of more than 4,000 hectares of farmland. Through most of Iceland’s history all wheat had to be imported; but this has changed and domestic flour sells at a premium.

Iceland Eyjafjallajokull volcanic eruption declared over
Posted on28 October 2010. Tags: Eyjafjallajokull, fimmvörðuháls, Iceland, science, volcano

It has been a long time coming, but scientists at the University of Iceland have finally taken the step of declaring the volcanic eruption which brought European aviation to its knees this spring, over.
The small Fimmvorduhals eruption ran from 20th March to 12th April and then the much bigger (and ashier) eruption under the main Eyjafjallajokull glacier took over between 14th April and early to mid June. No new lava has been seen since then, but scientists were wary of declaring the eruption finished too early. Even now it is remotely possible the volcano could start up again; but scientists say the risk is now small enough for the eruption to be described as over.

The eruption sites are still very hot today and could take years to cool down properly, Visir.is reported. An estimated between 300 and 400 million tonnes of ash were created by the eruption and it melted some 100 million cubic metres of ice.
