Eyjafjallajökull

Eyjafjallajökull (with OI. "Island mountain glacier") — the volcano in southern Iceland height 1666 m — ready to present to humanity new surprises. In the next 50 years, the Icelandic volcano will terrorize the European airlines, as the volcanic activity in Iceland is currently in the stage of activity.

According Vlasti.net:

"The volcanic activity in Iceland is activated at intervals of about 50-80 years. And now entered a new cycle.

Flights over the North Atlantic and the surrounding areas may be almost suspended in the coming years, experts predict. And the explosion of the volcano Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland and the ash cloud — to become a familiar sight. Volcano woke quietly over the last ten years. And remind yourself tremors. The last earthquake that triggered Eyyafyallayekyul occurred in late May 2008. Magnitude 6.2 earthquake epicenter was 50 kilometers from the capital of Iceland — Reykjavik. Thus, almost a year ago, the volcano has entered an active phase, exploded this Wednesday, April 14, and is not going to fall asleep again. All seismographic data suggest that in front of us waiting for a large number of very large eruptions and earthquakes. "

Over the past 1100 years, a volcanic eruption occurred four times: in 920, 1612, 1821-1823 and 2010. Fifty years ago, humanity was not so much dependent on air transport, as in our time. Icelandic volcanoes explosions were not a problem, because so many air traffic was not as now. As reported by scientists volcanic ash is completely harmless to humans, but can be a big problem for the aircraft: the ash can clog in the important parts of the aircraft, because of what may refuse engines. And once again proved the nature of man is not defeated!
It is possible that due to disturbances of nature, which have been particularly active in the 21st century, and also due to the economic crisis, the pace of life is slow, and we will have more time for myself.
