Photo Album: Eyjafjallajökull Eruption

Eyjafjallajökull (Icelandic for “Eyja-fjalla glacier”) is one of the smaller glaciers in Iceland. The icecap of the glacier covers a volcano with a summit elevation of 1,666 meters (5,466 feet). The volcano erupted on the 20th of March 2010. The plume of ash from a later ongoing eruption beginning on 14 April 2010 has led to the recent widespread disruption of air travel in Europe.



More than 20 countries in Europe have been effected. The volcano previously erupted between 1821 and 1823. The Eruption of Eyjafjallajökull has been selected as the first Photo Album topic in the Photography section of Running Wolf’s Rant.
