Earth from Space: A smoke-free Iceland
ESA: Observing the Earth - 04 June 2010
  • Image
    This image, acquired by Envisat’s Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer
    on 24 May 2010, features a smoke-free Iceland. The Eyjafjallajokull volcano,
    which had a series of eruptions in April and May, is visible in the dark area
    on the southern coast. The Vatnajokull glacier (visible in white northeast of
    Eyjafjallajokull) is the largest in Iceland and in Europe. The white circular
    patch in the centre of the country is Hofsjokull, the country’s third largest
    glacier and its largest active volcano. The elongated white area west of
    Hofsjokull is Langjokull, Iceland’s second largest glacier. (ESA)
