Volcano in Iceland. Drive to the eruption

We drove up Myrdalsjokull glacier, on the south coast of Iceland, to the volcano at Fimmvorduhals. A spectacular display of the raw power of nature. For this trip we used well equipped 500 horsepower Dodge Ram diesel boasting 49″ tires among other goodies. The music is by Pete Tosh, Ka Da TA Eftirmiðdaginn 29. mars 2010 ókum við upp Sólheimajökul og svo til vesturs að Fimmvörðuhálsi. Náðum gosinu í ljósaskiptunum. Hraunáin niður í Hrunagil er stórkostleg og á einni klukkustund gjörbreyttist hún í nokkurs konar flúðir. Ferðin var farin á Dodge Ram 2500, vel útbúnum til jöklaferða (sem er meira en hægt var að segja um marga ferðamennina á jöklinum, því miður).

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

Eruption in Eyjafjallajokull – Iceland Excursions.avi

Proven once again, Iceland is truly the land of fire and ice. The people of Iceland are used to the forces of nature, since there have been constant reports of volcanic activities throughout the history of our beautiful island. For the second time this year a volcanic eruption has started, now in the glacier with the name that no one can say Eyjafjallajökull. To see a volcanic eruption is something most people dont have a chance to many times in their lives (except if you are an Icelander!). Joins us on a tour for a unique experience. Our super trucks take you along the south shore to Hvolsvöllur. From there we turn off the main road and head to Fljótshlíð, where we stop to view the volcanic activity at a safe distance away from the eruption. Our guides give you a good overview of the geology of the area and about volcanic eruptions. We will be travelling on gravel roads for the last part of this tour, making it necessary to have our 4wd super trucks to take you safely to our view point. Please note that some parts of the area surrounding the volcano are closed but we will ONLY go where it is allowed to be, ensuring our passengers safety. We reserve the right to cancel or alter the itinerary of this tour depending on weather and road conditions. New departures will be added as long as the eruption continues but we reserve the right to discontinue the tour when the eruption stops.

What Iceland’s Volcano Eruption Brings to the World?

What Iceland’s Volcano Eruption Brings to the World?

Article by Avivi

When asked what film is the best seller since the year of 2009, most film fans will give you this answer, “it must be the film 2012.” This is the truth, even though those who show no interest or too busy to go to the cinema must have ever heard of this disastrous film to date. The film is shot with high-definition video cameras and the cliff-hanging scenes of the end of the earth worldwide can shock and move each audience to the core. It’s so stirring and vivid, thus making audience believe in the Mayanism, on which the film is said to be inspired from.

The continual earthquakes since the beginning of this year are also believed to the forceful evidence of the end of the world. Some pessimistic believers even begin to drone through their lives. Admittedly, these are extreme cases and most of us are still living our daily lives as usual. However, it never rains but pours. The recent volcano eruption in Iceland is little less than pouring oil onto the fire, lending support to those doomsday-believers.

What Iceland’s volcano eruption suggest to the world? Are we virtually at the merge of our extinction? The answer is “Definitely Not.” In spite of this, we have to admit to the fact that severe losses are seen every day with the continuing of the volcano eruption The first threat goes to the local citizens of Iceland. Clouds of ash shadowed the sky over the country, thus giving rise to severe environmental problems. In addition, the heat even made a glacier melt and hundreds of people are facing the danger of being submerged by the imminent flood.

Apart from these explicit harms the volcano eruption causes, some potential negative effects are also in existence. For example, as the clouds of volcano ash spread over the sky, almost all the fights in Europe have been cancelled or delayed, thousands of passengers all stalled in the airport, unable to travel to their destinations, accordingly, the economic loss is rather tremendous. A lady with a shoulder bag gave us her complaints as follows

“My company is dealing with wholesale wedding dress business, and we also sell the little black dresses to the Japanese and Korean markets. I planned to fly to Seoul, but the continuous postponement of the flight spoilt my entire schedule. I phoned to the counterpart in Korea, they showed their full understanding, though unwillingly.” In fact, the economic loss is a lot more intensive than one can expect. With the large-scale cancellation of passenger and freight flights, the economic loss is said to be one to two percent to the GDP of Europe.

“The influence is unexpected and long-term”, a market manager noted, “we plan to deliver our goods to East Asia to take up the summer dress market quota, while we have to wait here and lose to our competitors”. He concluded. Still wedding dress. is their hot line.
