Eyjafjallajokull Volcano in Iceland Thursday, April 15, 2010

With the news this morning regarding the disruption of European flights due to the ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajokull Volcano in Iceland I decided to post some very interesting cloud maps, photos, and video regarding this.

Great to show the class using an interactive whiteboard or data projector, really bring the news into perspective and incorporates geography too.
