The Eyjafjallajokull eruption


Some stunning series of images of volcanic eruption in Iceland.







Photographer Martin Rietze got to within 250 metres of the lava fountains to capture his stunning series of images






The Eyjafjallajokull eruption is the second in less than a month and has seen hundreds of international flights cancelled



Lava hits the sea from the volcanic eruption between the Myrdalsjokull and Eyjafjallajokull glaciers, east of Iceland's capital Reykjavik






The plume from the Icelandic volcano - seen as a grey-brown streak drifting across the middle of the image - is visible from space. It was imaged by the Modis instruments on two Nasa satellites as it blew towards the Shetland



Widespread: Ash from the erupting volcano sweeps in an arc across the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, and Russia in this image from NASA yesterday





Coating: Researchers at Sheffield Hallam University collected these particles of volcanic ash (seen here under a microscope) which fell on cars in the centre's grounds earlier today





Lava spurts out of the site of a volcanic eruption at the Fimmvorduhals volcano near the Eyjafjallajokull glacier



Only around an hour old, this lavaflow is falling from a steep cliff a few hundred metres from the main eruption



Spectacular: Plumes of smoke shoot up from a volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland today which has erupted for the first time in 200 years




A man surveys what is left of the main Icelandic coastal road after it was washed away by flood water following the volcano eruption




Around 800 people have had to be evacuated and 70 tourists were rescued after they were trapped by the rising flood waters



Spectacular: A satellite image of the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland




Experts are concerned the recent eruption could trigger another more powerful one from the nearby Katla volcano




Part of the glacier has melted under the ferocious temperatures causing the flood swell to pour down the mountain




Workers have been forced to smash holes through roads in Iceland to allow the surging flood water to escape out to sea




Frozen: Ice chunks carried downstream by floodwaters caused by volcanic activity lie on the Markarfljot riverbank in Iceland yesterday



Dusty: A car in Iceland drives through the ash from the volcano




Close-up: The dark cloud of smoke coming from the Icelandic crater as seen by an Icelandic Coast Guard helicopter



People stranded at the airport due to cancellation of flight.
