Volcano in Iceland

Strange how mother nature rules our lives! whatever advances we make in technology

All Uk airports are closed (as well as other European countries) and as i live by a airport the quietness is so weird( believe me you get used to them and dont notice them till there arent any around )

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/4/20100416/...c-dba1618.html

reports are that we wont see the dust ( unless it rains ) but will have some spectacular sunrises or sunsets.

And typically last night was cloudy, and this morning well is sunrise before 8 a.m. ? but hopefully tonight will be ok

So if any one gets any shots please post them

here are some stunning ones from the volcano in Iceland

mind you rumour has it that it could effect our climate for a while, and you know how we Brits like to complain about the weather

Re: Volcano in Iceland

We're 20 minutes from the Amsterdam airport and it's eerily quiet here as well. Thanks for the link to the gallery. I was glued to my computer this morning searching for pictures of the eruption.

Re: Volcano in Iceland

Here is a website that was featured on BBC News 24, It's down at the moment as I think every man and his dog must be trying to access it. It provides real time data on aircraft their flight path and other stats, pretty interesting in a way.

Re: Volcano in Iceland

AND just think the environmentalists that say humans are putting to much Freon in the atmosphere from leaking refrigeration units
But These volcanoes put more Freon in the atmosphere than all the humans ever have or ever will. ..

I remember in the early 80's when Mt St Helen erupted it curtailed flights in the US - I was in the Air Force and had to do special Inspections to the acft engines that ingested the ash ..

Re: Volcano in Iceland

I remember when Mt. Pinatubo erupted a few years back and it spitted out more chlorine gas then Man has ever released 3 times over as Lloyd has already inferred. I also remembered that the next year, the temperatures were much cooler then the previous, so we might be in for a mild Summer and cold Winter this year. Doesn't feel like it now (quite warm here in Alabama this Spring), but we shall see if I'm right or not.

Re: Volcano in Iceland

Mike that is a cool site managed to get a look just, still saying too much traffic (net traffic that is not air )

still nice and quiet here next review is at 7a.m. Saturday morning, boy will it be busy when they reopen

giving a warning out that some dust may fall to ground but mainly in Scotland.

sky is clear still at the moment so should see the sunset tonight

Re: Volcano in Iceland

Re: Volcano in Iceland

A news story states the following:

"More floods from melting waters are expected as long as the volcano keeps erupting -- and in 1821, the same volcano managed to erupt for more than a year."

Can you imagine a year with no air traffic in Europe-?

Re: Volcano in Iceland

That should even accelerate global cooling. lol

Sorry for the environmental jab. My heart's out for those effected in Europe. I can't even image a year or more of a continuous eruption like this though. Economically, we don't need any more help like this. Europe, I'm sure is hurting too and if you take away tourist money, that really would be bad. I also heard that consumables are also being effected because trade has diminish due of this volcano. Lets just hope this volcano plugs itself up soon.
