    • The icecap of the glacier Eyjafjallajökull (meaning 'island mountain glacier') covers a volcano (1,666 metres or 5,466 ft in height) which has erupted relatively frequently since the last Ice Age.
    • The volcano erupted twice in 2010, on 20 March and 15 April.
    • The April eruption caused massive disruption to air traffic across Northern Europe and scientists claimed it was ten to twenty times more powerful than the March event.
    • The most recent eruption before 2010 was from 1821 to 1823, causing a fatal glacial lake outburst flood. A previous eruption was in 1612. The crater of the volcano has a diameter of 3–4 kilometres (1.9–2.5 mi) and the glacier covers an area of about 100 square kilometres (39 sq mi).
