Little Change at Eruption Site

Little change is taking place at Eyjafjallajökull glacier, according to

Eyjafjallajökull Glacier.

The period between June 11th and June 17th had seen a regression in water retention in the crater, since blocks of ice seem to have been isolated from the crater once again.

This update is stated in a new status report compiled by the Iceland Weather Bureau and the University of Iceland’s Institute of Earth Sciences.

Every once in a while, ash clouds are seen rising from the crater before dissolving. Land shifting towards the crater is still minor. However, a GPS monitor at Austmannsbunga has shifted towards south-east. According to the report, it is not clear how the shift can be interpreted.
