(This article relates to the 2010 eruption at Eyjafjallajokull. For information on the May 2011 eruption at Grimsvotn, please check the IceNews homepage for regular updates) “Heat seeking pictures show that the there is no activity in the volcano,” says Magnus Tumi Gudmundsson, Professor of Geophysics. He flew over the volcano today to do research into the activity of the Eyjafjallajokull Volcano. It looks like this small but infamous volcano has stopped spewing ash, and may not be starting again.
“Heat seeking pictures are not showing more than 100 degrees Celsius and that tells us that the crater of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano has no activity.”
This comes as great news to the Icelandic tourism sector, and for those flying to Iceland with airlines like Icelandair things are looking good again.
