UPDATE APRIL 2009: If you’re after news on the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajoekull, or Eyjafjöll, which is currently belching out masses of ash into the atmosphere and grounding planes across Northern Europe, check out our report on SciScoop.
You can find a regularly updated list of recent volcano eruptions here.
Given the number of Sciencebase visitors looking for information on recent volcano eruptions and currently erupting volcanoes, it seemed sensible to set up a page that would provide the latest information on that very subject. By syndicating the latest announcements and alerts on recent eruptions from the University of North Dakota website (Volcano World), Sciencebase provides a quick route to the information you need in this explosive area.
Volcano World is a collaborative higher education, K-12, and public outreach project of the North Dakota and Oregon Space Grant Consortia administered by the Department of Geosciences at Oregon State University. Thanks to them for making their updates available as a newsfeed for syndication.
We also have information about the 2010 Haiti earthquake disaster.
