Eyjafjöll Still Erupting

Posted by feww on March 31, 2010

Eyjafjöll Volcano on Fimmvörduháls Continues Erupting

As volcanic activity at the Fimmvörduháls in south Iceland waxes and wanes, an expert said up to 20 million cubic meters of pyroclasts may have been ejected from the fissure.

Local geophysicist Magnús Tumi Gudmundsson said the volcano may have spewed an estimated, 15-20 million cubic meters of tephra since the eruption began on March 21.  The lava now covers an area of about one square kilometer, he told a local newspaper.

Lava from  Fimmvörduháls crater on a mountain pass in south Iceland has changed direction the Hrunagil canyon into the Hvannárgil canyon forming a spectacular 100-meter high lava fall.

“There is a continuous flow of lava,” geophysicist Magnús Tumi Gudmundsson told Morgunbladid. The lava flow now extends to about one kilometer from the fissure.
