April 19, 2010 As the eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano wreaks havoc on air transportation in Europe, it's worth remembering that the North Atlantic island has produced far deadlier blasts in the past, and that it's likely to do so again.
April 19, 2010 A deal struck by European Union transportation ministers launched a few flights Monday and may permit more on Tuesday. But fresh ash from the eruption of a volcano in Iceland continues to complicate air travel conditions.
April 19, 2010 Forecasters can see the volcanic ash cloud on satellite images, and they can forecast which way it's going. But they can't tell exactly how much ash is in the air — or at what point it poses a hazard to airplanes. That's complicating efforts to decide how much of Europe's airspace can be reopened to travel.
