Welcome to the website of Iceland Eyjafjallajökull volcano and Katla volcano. The server will have hopefully soon also travelogue of travel experiences on the site of Iceland from the year before. In the spring of 2010, a hot topic was Eyjafjallajökull and Katla. Volcanic activity is unpredictable and uncontrollable man. That's why so surprised ...  

One of the greatest threats to present volcanic activity volcano Katla. Katla is located in Glacier Mýrdalsjökull north of Vík s Mýrdal. Nobody knows where it can show its work, but its strength could undermine the climate in Europe more so than in the volcano glacier Eyjafjallajökull. She is taking a little east of Kalte. Why is such a threat?

The island state south of Iceland is Katla, powerful and aggressive volcano whose last eruption dates for the 1918th Rises up to 1512 m above sea level. These include extreme around scientists who are closely monitored, measured and also serves as a source of knowledge about the volcanic activity of many scientists from abroad. It is expected that its activity wakes up in the near future. According to the calculations is reflected in their activity every few decades. However, documented 16 eruptions since the 930th The explosion in 1755 led to massive floods and melting glaciers that flow of water per second was estimated at just less than 400,000 cubic meters of water. Something unthinkable. Katla is a source tephry, pyroclastic deposits. It covers a huge pot of ice and so his actions can not be any less traceability.

Despite leading the field main road in Iceland's main road essentially Hringvegur length 1339th Built it in 1974, despite concerns that the lower-lying areas have been frequent flooding and road passes through this area is used. The eastern part is not even in all places and is reinforced by the only area with gravel.
Caldera has a diameter of 10 km. Became uneasy in 1999 and concerns that may occur at any time are in place. Some scientists think that the explosion Eyjafjallu can act as a valve to release Katly. Worse conditions are those that Katla you go your way and only Eyjafjall Katlu pressure to provoke a massive explosion .
