THE Icelandic eruption that has caused misery for air travellers could be part of a surge in volcanic activity that will affect the whole of Europe for decades, scientists have warned.

They have reconstructed a timeline of 205 eruptions in Iceland, spanning the past 1,100 years, and found that they occur in regular cycles — with the relatively quiet phase that dominated the past five decades now coming to an end.

At least three other big Icelandic volcanoes are building towards an eruption, according to Thor Thordarson, a volcanologist at Edinburgh University.

“The frequency of Icelandic eruptions seems to rise and fall in a cycle lasting around 140 years,” he said. “In the latter part of the 20th century we were in a low period, but now there is evidence that we could be approaching a peak.”

Partner was supposed to be flying to Belfast from Exeter yesterday. He got the flight changed to Dublin, but by the time he got to the airport that was cancelled too. He tried again early this morning, but no luck again. He did look at surface travel, but couldn't have gotten to Belfast till this evening, not worth it when he should be working there today and tomorrow only.

I hope it is clear before Danuta has to fly back from Bristol.

In the meantime, enjoy the quiet, everyone.

Dunno, Mutley. Once upon a time, in a land to the far north, there once lived a personage with a name a bit like that. But one day she locked the door of her little cottage and faced southwards on a Great Adventure.

She had heard tales that the streets were paved with gold and the CFCs dripped with irresistible bargains.

Last sighting was at a place known as Bristol. She was seen wandering ever further southwards but the further south she went, the more the natives found it difficult to understand her strange language. And vice-versa.

Oh bless her, I hope she isn't stranded down there in the wild West. 

I'll try that again!

Ive hear stories of this great explorer whilst sitting on my grandpa's knee. she is fabled to have founded a great dynesty in the hinterlands of the severn valley, centered on the belief that the chickens are organised and they will someday rule the world ,but some say this was after she traveled to a faraway county called somerset where she partook of the nectar of the cider press, and stagered around for a year and a day doing good deeds for the less fortunate and seeking a return flight to the fabled land of the North to be reunited with her flock Wink,Tardis MOS

sit down with a cupa and the urge will subside
