Grimsvotn ash plume, May 2011 Featured 24 May 2011 Print

Grimsvotn ash plume, May 2011

Grimsvotn ash plume, May 2011, satellite image. This ash cloud (brown, lower right) has been produced by the eruption of the Grimsvotn volcano in Iceland. Iceland is at upper centre, partially covered in clouds and ice. Like the Eyjafjallajokull eruption of 2010, this one is disrupting UK and potentially European airspace, though the ash is of a different sort and the disruption is expected to be less severe. Grimsvotn is Iceland's most active volcano, and is located below the Vatnajokull glacier, the largest in Europe. The eruption started on 21 May 2011, and this image was obtained by the MODIS sensor on a NASA satellite on 22 May 2011
