Volcano Hekla, IcelandHekla volcano, one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes, is on the verge of a major eruption that could impact air travel, experts have warned. A University of Iceland geoscientist believes a ‘bulge’ on the northern sign of the volcano is caused by huge deposits of magma rising. In 2010 the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano hampered air travel due to the ash and gas it has spewed into the atmosphere, and there are fears another eruption could cause the same issues. Researchers say there is now more magma than in 2000, the last time the Hekla volcano erupted. University of Iceland geophysicist Pll Einarsson said in a report published in the Icelandic newspaper Morgunblai on Monday that according to GPS monitoring of the expanding surface, there is now more magma underneath Hekla than before the volcano’s last eruption in 2000, . Hekla volcano ‘could erupt soon,’ Einarsson said.
