On 20 March 2010 an eruption started in Eyjafjallajökull. The fissure is 500 metres long pointing northeastsouthwest, with 10 erupting lava craters which spew around 1000 °C (1832 °F) hot lava up to 150 metres into the air. This eruption is small compared to, for example, the eruption of Hekla in 2000. The eruption, rather than taking place under the ice cap of the glacier, occurred in the mountain pass between the Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull glaciers. Over the past 1100 years, Eyjafjallajökull has erupted three times: in 920, 1612, and between 18211823. Each of these incidents directly preceded a major eruption in the nearby subglacial volcano, Katla. There is so far no evidence that Katla will erupt because of its vicinity to the current eruption in Fimmvörðuháls mountain pass. Katla, which is a much more active volcano, known for its powerful subglacial eruptions and its large magma chamber, much larger than that of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano system, has still not shown any unusual activity, like expansion of the crust or seismic activity. However, one cannot rule out that possibility, since history has shown that Eyjafjallajökull can be a precursor to additional Katla activity. Some geophysicists in Iceland support the notion that the recent volcanic eruption at Eyjafjallajökull may trigger a second eruption at Katla, which would cause a major flooding event due to melting of glacial ice.
