Eruption of Eyjafjallajokull
Eyjafjallajokull is one of the smaller ice caps of Iceland, with a peak elevation of 1,651 meters (5,417 feet). The volcano has repeatedly erupted comparatively since the Last Glacial Period, most recently in 2010, when moderately small for a volcanic eruption. Europe endured air flying chaos for about one month as much of the continent ground to a stop. It is approximated that air companies lost about £130m (€146m) each day that airspace continued closed, while millions of travelers were left stranded.
