The recent volcanic eruption in Iceland is stranding hundreds of thousands of air travelers at Heathrow Airport in the UK and other airports across northern Europe, due to its voluminous clouds of volcanic ash that can clog airplane engines and limit visibility.
However, this is by no means the first such volcanic eruption in Iceland to affect human activities. Long before the advent of air travel, the eruption of Iceland's Laki volcano in 1783-84 had profound effects on climate, not just in Iceland but around the globe.
Volcanologists Thorvaldur Thordarson and Stephen Self estimated that a comparable event in the modern era would release enough ash and other eruptive materials into the atmosphere that the resulting ash cloud and sulfuric haze would probably disrupt air travel over much of the Northern Hemisphere for about five months. But there were impacts well afield of Iceland and Europe at the time of Laki. [full story here]

Europe Airline industry lost much revenue from eruption of volcanoes ash. Moreover , so many flights remained down and unable to carry their passengers.

Even though one may not be a scientist professionally recently everybody has been learning from the nature. Enough to observe the univesrse and the shifting the level of latitudes of the land, the change of weather and climate, the alteration of the time of sun rise and the sunset. Every phenomenon opens a new chapter for a new research and a new discovery
