Released : 2010

In 2010 Europe’s air traffic was brought to a standstill leaving thousands of passengers around the world stranded. It was Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull eruption that caused the disruption, when in April of that year, molten rock up to 1,100°c hit the glacier above.

But what led to such unprecedented chaos? How can ash that cannot even be detected by radar systems pose such a threat to modern aircrafts? And could this be just the beginning of a series of much bigger eruptions?  With a rise in seismic activity across the island, some scientists believe that Iceland may be at the dawn of a new volcanic age.

Drawing on the expertise of leading volcanologists and with stunning first-hand footage, this film looks at the science behind this extraordinary event, and the volcanoes that could affect us in the future.
