1 :01x01 - Icelandic Volcanoes

Jan/02/2013
The series about volcanoes begins with a survey of Icelandic volcanoes in an attempt to gauge whether any will erupt in the near future and, if so, what the consequences might be. The relatively mild eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano in 2010 halted air travel in Europe for several days. Here, experts ponder the damage and disruptions that a major eruption could bring.
