Volcanic eruptions in 2010Edit
Fimmvörðuháls eruptions in March - April 2010Edit
The first series of eruptions started in March 2010 and went on for about 3 weeks. The effusive eruptions on the mountain pass Fimmvörðuháls originated in volcanic fissures which are part of the Eyjafjallajökull volcanic system.
Eyjafjallajökull subglacial eruptions in April - June 2010Edit
The second series of eruptions started subglacially under Eyjafjallajökull himself the 14th of April 2010 and went on til the end of June. They were explosive, producing very fine grained tephra of a trachyandesite type which caused important disruptions of European airtravel during the next weeks and months.
