Coast Guard Plane Called Home for Eruption Monitoring

The Icelandic Coast Guard surveillance plane has been called home from abroad in light of a possible eruption in Bárðarbunga volcano in the northwestern corner of Vatnajökull glacier, Southeast Iceland, ruv.is reports.

The plane, which is equipped with radar, cameras and other equipment ideal for the monitoring of eruptions, has been used in border patrols in the southern Mediterranean.

It is expected back in Iceland after midday tomorrow.
