    Description

    About the cover
    The Icelandic volcano that produced the ash cloud that halted European air traffic last April had been active intermittently for about 18 years. A combination of space-based geodetic measurements and seismic monitoring of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in the run-up to the ash-producing explosion reveals unusual deformation patterns. The immediate short-term precursors to the initial eruption of the volcano in 2010 were subtle, but the clear signs of volcanic unrest during the weeks, months and years preceding the eruption may provide better clues as to the nature of the catastrophic explosion. The cover photo shows the base of the ash plume in the main crater on 11 May 2010, with hot  bombs of lava being ejected hundreds of metres into the air. Credit: Fredrik Holm (www.fredrikholm.se)
