Eyjafjallajökull

WI_is043.jpg

View in northeastern direction to the ice-clad volcano of Eyjafjallajökull, 1651 m high. In 2010, an eruption of this stratovolcano produced a large amount of ash which was blown southeastwards by the winds, completely disrupting air traffic over most of Europe. The event also produced jökulhlaups when large amounts of snow and ice melted due to the heat of the eruption.
