Eyjafjallajökull volcano eruption

Unlike the Fimmvörðuháls eruption, the second eruption occurred beneath ice of the Eyjafjallajökull glacier. It started in the morning of 14 April 2010. Seismic activity was detected in the area the night before eruption. A series of vents were active along a 2 kilometer long fissure. Cold water from the melted ice chilled lava causing it to fragment into abrasive glass particles which were carried out into the eruption plume. The ash of the eruption rose to more than 8 kilometers, reached the Jet Stream and was carried into the airspace of northern and central Europe, stopping the air - traffic over the region. Huge flooding destroyed bridges in South Iceland and changed the landscape of the area.
