The latest NASA satellite images of the resurgent Eyjafjallajökull-Fimmvörduháls eruption in southern Iceland can be found via the Rapid Response System site, and are very impressive. The detail above comes from this Terra MODIS image captured on 14 April 2010: the eruption plume (white in colour – almost entirely steam from melted ice and snow) can be seen blowing due east from the seat of the eruption at Fimmvörduháls. The area shown in the image is about 150 km wide.
