Eyjafjallajokull Eruption Seen From Orbit (2010.03.24)

An ongoing volcano eruption on Eyjafjalla Glacier (Eyjafjallajokull) in Iceland. The volcanic eruption started on 21 March 2010 beneath the glacier, located on the southern tip of Iceland. Partially clear skies on 24 March enabled Meteosat-9 to catch a glimpse of the hot spot (the short line of very dark pixels). credit: EUMETSAT source: www.eumetsat.int

Crossing of Iceland in the winter – frozen shoes ….

Kim Broux og Jochem Cuypers crossed Iceland from north to south in february 2008. It was a beautyfull trip, but very heavy because of the bad weather (8 days really bad). They used 11 days to complete the trip – for more info and photos look at their website www.wereldvanavontuur.be

Iceland F910 – the blocky moraines

Coming from Askja, going west over the F910, you will first meet a sandy desert. Following is an area in which Vatnajokull melting water water could be flushing the route completely, when you’re out of this you come into the area with blocks of a moraine of the Vatnajokull glacier. These blocks are just big enough to make you drive slowly, no need for speed-camera’s here. When the camera turns right you will get a view on the flushed plains, where sandstorms reign. We had pretty cold and dry weather, therefore the plains are very dry and dusty. Driving over these blocks does not make you want to go fast.
