Cloud of Ash Spewing from Iceland’s Grimsvotn Volcano – May 26th, 201164.4N 17.3W
This image shows a cloud of ash spewing from Iceland’s Grimsvotn volcano, a vision reminiscent of the 2010 eruptions of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano (click here for previous articles). The Grimsvotn volcano is located under the Vatnajokull glacier in the Vatnajokull National Park – the biggest national park in Europe.
Although the eruption temporarily affected European air travel, with about 700 flights cancelled in Germany on Wednesday, air traffic is now operating normally. In Iceland, clean up of the ash has begun, and all major roads have been reopened.
