You know the one! The towering glacier-capped strata volcano Eyjafjallajokull is probably the most famous volcano in the world today.
On March 20, 2010, after being dormant for more than 180 years, Eyjafjallajokull began spewing molten lava in an uninhabited area in southwest Iceland. On April 14, 2010, after a brief intermission, the volcano resumed erupting from the top crater in the center of the glacier causing flooding which required an evacuation of 800 people.
Today the aftermath of the volcanic eruption can be seen in Thorsmork Glacier Valley, the natural oasis that lies just behind the volcano.
