A new volcanic fissure near Eyjafjallajökull in southern Iceland indicates that the eruption at Fimmvörduháls is still going strong. The vent opened on the afternoon of March 31st, to the northwest of the original vent. This natural-color satellite image shows the area of the eruption on April 1. The image was acquired by the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) aboard NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite.
