Searchable Map of Eyjafjallajökull using Google Earth Data

Satellite View is showing Eyjafjallajökull one of the smaller glaciers of Iceland. It is located 5 km (3.1 mi) off the island's southern Atlantic coast about 120 km southeast of Reykjavik, Iceland's capital city.

The icecap of the glacier covers an active volcano 1,666 meters (5,466 ft) in height, its crater is 3–4 kilometers (1.9–2.5 mi) in diameter. The volcano has erupted relatively frequently since recorded history.
An eruption in 1821 to 1823 caused a fatal glacial lake outburst flood.

Most recently Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted twice in 2010, on 20 March and 14 April. The March event forced a brief evacuation of around 500 local people, but the April eruption was ten to twenty times more powerful and caused massive disruption to air traffic across Northern and Western Europe. A huge swathe of European airspace was shut because of dangerous ash from the volcano.
