The bluffer's guide to... Vatnajokull and Grimsvotn

Everything you need to know about Iceland’s latest volatile volcanic area.

OFFICIALS ON VOLCANIC watch in Iceland have said that meltwater is flooding from a glacial lake there – this could indicated that the volcano underneath is about to erupt.

Reuters is reporting that Iceland’s Civil Protection Department spokeswoman Gudrun Johannesdottir says water is pouring from Iceland’s biggest glacier, Vatnajokull. It lies about 100km from Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano which erupted in April, grounding thousands of flights across Europe because of fears of volcanic ash interfering with airplane engine systems.

Vatnajokull glacier lies on a number of volcanic “hotspots” and the Civil Protection Department fears that the floodwater could signal an increase in geological activity below the surface.
