Grímsvötn Volcanic Eruption
Professor Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson, geophysicist at the University of Iceland, has confirmed that volcanic activity in Grímsvötn has peaked, and while the eruption has not been declared over, it will most likely not reach previous volumes. The eruption continued yesterday, but the volcano has only emitted a fraction of the material it previously spewed.
Today, it has been projecting about 100 tons of material per second, down from 1,000 tons of material last night, and 10,000 tons of material on Sunday. The ash plume now reaches 3-5 km in the air, down from 8-10 km yesterday. All scheduled flights in and out of Keflavík have been confirmed with the exception of flights to Glasgow and London that have been delayed/canceled for the time being. Some changes to schedules may occur due to backlog, and passengers are encouraged to check with their airline for confirmed departure/arrival times.
All our whale watching tours are in operation as scheduled and we look forward to see you in Húsavík.
