The Iceland Volcano Thread

    This morning parts of UK Airspace were closed as the ash erupted from the Eyjafjol volcano (starting yesterday) drifted across it. Ths stuff is pretty deadly if it gets into aircraft engine intakes.

    The airspace closure so far affects Scotland and NI so far but the cloud is drifting south.

    Current visible imagery shows strong drifting ash plumes north of scotland.

    Eyjafjallajokull could bang on for years...or stop tomorrow. Its neigbour Ole Dirty Bastard could possibly erupt too. I thought it was time to open a thread to monitor this ash cloud and the volume and force of the eruption because Icelandic volcanos can have a profound effect on weather and always have done.
