Eyjafjallajokull Volcano links

Volcano links, well, just because… well, they are very fascinating. I wonder if it's because I watched so many prehistoric monster movies as a kid in which there were volcanoes...

This has got to be one of the most stunning images caught of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano, which erupted in April 2010 and wreaked havoc across Europe.

Best overall site for news is http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/europe/2010/iceland_volcano/default.stm

and their TV channel is very good as well. More indepth coverage than CNN, etc.
