Iceland Strikes Back

If your travel plans include a transatlantic crossing any time soon, you may want to keep an eye on this one...

New Icelandic volcano eruption could have global impact

I blogged about Katla last year; it's a much bigger and more destructive volcano than Eyjafjallajökull, it tends to erupt shortly after its neighbour, and it hasn't seen any major activity since 1918. Hmmm...

cheers

Iceland tourism chiefs trying to calm volcano fears

"While the BBC article is nearly all true, geophysicists in Iceland point out that the phrase “an eruption may be imminent” means very little. An eruption could happen next week, or Katla may continue to rumble quietly for several more years before blowing.

In the meantime the South Iceland tourism industry is adamant that people should not avoid visiting Iceland. There is always the threat of an eruption in Iceland and they very often come as a complete surprise, they argue."

That's an interesting angle to take in "reassuring" people...

best,

I'm still hoping Al-Jazeera will commission Eliza Geirsdottir Newman to come up with a sequel to this catchy number:
