Eyjafjallajökull erupting in the spring of 2010.

I have a request for all of you Eruptions readers! In a few weeks I will be giving a talk here at Denison on the Eyjafjallajökull eruption and especially the aspects of how the eruption unfolded on the web. I think the shared experience of the seismicity, fissure vent eruption and explosive eruption - along with all the ramifications of the air traffic stoppage over Europe - was a fascinating phenomenon. So, I ask you readers:

How would you describe your experience on Eruptions during the Eyjafjallajökull events?

By that I mean in terms of finding information, sharing information, sharing experiences or whatever - what stands out in your mind that made the Eyjafjallajökull so unique for a volcanic eruption in recent memory, especially in regards to the internet and the blog. Did you feel you got something more out of the collective experience than just following the news events on normal media?

If you are willing and able to share, please send me your thoughts to


or leave a comment on this post.

Thanks for any help!
