New ash plume from Eyjafjallajökull (updated 10/05/2010)
Another large ash cloud was injected into the atmosphere from Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
The Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull continues to erupt. During the last days we observed some SO2 plumes moving from Iceland across the North Atlantic and over the British Isles (MPG, 3.7 MB). The ash is detectable with different EUMETSAT satellite sensors.
In our recent loop from the geostationary imagery, we observe how the current anticyclonic activity in the Atlantic keeps most of the volcanic ash away from the European mainland. To download this loop, right click on the link and select 'Save Target As'.
Finally, near real-time RGB imagery of the volcanic ash cloud is available on our website.
