Mammatus Clouds

Mammatus , also known as mammatocumulus (meaning "mammary cloud" or "breast cloud"), is a meteorological term applied to a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud. The name mammatus is derived from the Latin mamma (meaning "udder" or "breast"), as some consider there is a resemblance between the characteristic shape of these clouds and the breast of a woman.

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.
