Scientists forecast decades of ash clouds

May 16, 2010 - The recent volcanic eruption from Iceland may be just a beginning to a cycle of heavy volcanic activity there. Scientists have analyzed the timeline of 205 eruptions in Iceland, spanning the past 1,100 years, and found that they occur in regular cycles. Another such cycle is due to begin now. The current volcanic activity could go on for months or years.
At least three other big Icelandic volcanoes are building towards an eruption, according to Thor Thordarson, a volcanologist at Edinburgh University.
