Volcanic eruption in Iceland: cloud of volcanic ash may return any time

The Eyjafjallajokull volcano may enter the new phase of eruption in the next few days or weeks

In brief: Scientists warn that the new cloud of volcanic ash may cover Europe.

The situation with air communication in Europe is gradually returning to normal. More and more airports are opening again after the ICAO official statement, in which the flights in European airspace have been officially considered safe. But the scientists aren’t as optimistic as ICAO representatives, warning that the cloud of volcanic ash may return to Europe any time.

Yesterday forecasts have shown that the cloud of volcanic ash is likely to disperse by the end of the week due to precipitation and reduction of the atmospheric pressure and the airports in European countries began to open after this information. But the volcanologists warn that the situation with Eyjafjallajokull volcano, which is currently calming down, can change in the next few days or weeks – and in that case another cloud of volcanic ash is going to cover Europe, paralyzing air communication again.

    Hi, sorry that such natural hazard is happening.Eruptions especially from active volcanoes are in-evitable.The public has to obey the warnings from meteorologists and geophysicists. Obsevations of such physical features are vital and these sectors should be added more funds to carry out more research about them.We should check our levels of greenhouse gases emitted by respective countries.
