Ash advisories derived from dispersion-model output were issued by the London VAAC, depicting the presence of ash over large parts of Europe and the North Atlantic. Based on those advisories, over airports in about two dozen countries, and a correspondingly large airspace, were closed in Europe during April This resulted in massive impacts on air travel worldwide. To reopen airspace, European aviation authorities endorsed the creation of a new type of concentration chart advisory product that delineated hazard zones based on dispersion model output of ash concentrations.

For my first post, I thought I would cover my favourite case study from A level. I have referred to my old A level notes to compile this detailed case study regarding the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland. If you think trying to remember how to spell it is difficult, try pronouncing it!!! It may be in a bit more detail than some of you may like, so I encourage you to take key points from it as this case study I have covered has literally got the whole event covered — or most of it! I hope you enjoy! Askja, Krafla, Surtsey etc.
Eyjafjallajokull is a volcano located in Iceland. The name is a description of the volcano with Eyja meaning island; fjalla meaning mountain; and jokull meaning glacier. You can find out how to pronounce Eyjafjallajokull on the BBC website. The ice cap covers an area of about square kilometres 39 sq mi , feeding many outlet glaciers.
