A volcano in Iceland erupted again yesterday, and now airports all over the UK and parts of western Europe have had to close because of clouds of volcanic ash, which can foul jet engines.

Are you doing OK Marcus??? Just wondered about you.

Will it travel around the earth until it's over North America? If so, how long will it take it to so? Will it disrupt our weather patterns?

I am preparing for a business trip to Germany. Now all the flights to Europe are cancelled, and I am waiting for what the situation will be on Monday.

It's weird. But I do not want to fly worrying about the possibility of jet engine break down... You know.

Alexey

Allen,

Maybe it's the earth's way of addressing global warming. As the surface temperature increases it only logical that this would increase the earth's core temperature. Which would increase lava movement which would trigger more volcanic activity. Which in turn puts move volcanic ash in the air to deflect light ray from the sun which would reduce global temperatures. Seems to me that the to be billions of years old that there must be some way it can control internal issues.

Another thought this increase volcanic ash being present in the air would reduce air traffic. Which in turn would reduce fossil fuel usage and reduce carbon admissions into the air. Which means less global warming.

Mike

Yes, your country has many natural wonders, like acting volcanoes. smile I will not go to Europe, so OK, it is better to stay safe home.
