Watch a volcano erupt with 50-meter lava jets in Iceland
Local authorities lowered the alert level for the eruption of the Bardarbunga volcano in Iceland due to a lack of ash.
At its peak, the lava jets reached 50 meters in height.
Iceland’s largest volcanic system – 190 kilometers long and up to 25 kilometers wide – has been hit by miles of quake in the past two weeks, prompting scientists to increase vigilance.
In 2010, an ash cloud from the eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano, in a different region of Iceland, forced the closure of most of Europe’s airspace.
