The volcano eruption underneath Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier is slowing rapidly, and one of the craters has died out, Morgunbladid reported, citing Magnus Gudmundsson, a geologist with the University of Iceland.
The power of the eruption is now a 10th of what it was in the first three days of the eruption, Gudmundsson said, according to the Reykjavik-based daily.
The eruption began on March 20 with a lava flow on the volcano’s eastern flank, the Institute of Earth Sciences at the University of Iceland reported. After a lull, it resumed early on April 14, directly under the glacier that covers most of the mountain.
