The main phase of the moderately sized November 2004 eruption of the Grímsvötn volcano, located in the center of the 8100 km2 Vatnajökull glacier, was monitored by the Icelandic Meteorological Office C-band weather radar in Keflavík, 260 km west of the volcano. The eruption plume reached a height of 6-10 km relative to the vent. The distribution of the most distal tephra was measured in the autumn of 2004, while the deposition on the glacier was mapped in the summers of 2005 and 2006. The… CONTINUE READING
