Eyjafjallajökull is one famous recent volcano. It's last eruption was in 2010, when it cut off many flights all over Europe because of it's ash, that covered huge expanses of land and sky! Thousands of people were left stranded for days. It's ash cloud, however, annoying as it was, is actually beautiful!
Eyjafjallajökull is on the south coast of Iceland. It is about 3 km inland. You have probably found it difficult to pronounce, this is because the words island, mountain, and glacier have been mushed into one. It is completely capped with ice, the cap covers 100 square km! Eyjafjallajökull is one of Iceland's 130 volcanic mountains! It is what we call a strato-volcano which basically means, a steep sided, deep cone volcano. It is one of the most destructive in the world! It usually eruptions between centuries (THANK GOODNESS) the dates are as following; 920, 1612, 1821 and 2010. Ash from the 1821 eruptions can still be found in the area! Wow! About 25 km away, there is volcano Katla. Usually it erupts shortly after Eyjafjallajökull, but this was not the case in the 2010 eruption. Could this mean they share a magma chamber? Oooh, who knows?
