    It`s pretty weird here at the moment. If you poke your head outside you can smell a faint burning smell, and I haven`t seen any jet planes in days.

    Wow! That really is incredible. I`m supposed to fly to Itlay on Saturday. I hope this is all blown over by then and I can get there!
    I don`t think I will ever use "blown over" so properly ever again.

    I live in the midlands so if you live further south than me it`ll probably reach you soon as the cloud heads your way. But yeah, the air HAS changed noticeably. Just glad I`m not severely asthmatic...

    It`s a little odd to not see any contrails in the sky. I hadn`t realised how common they were until there weren`t any.

    Things could get much worse. This volcano is, by Icelandic standards, a little one that is not very active. It`s connected to a much bigger and much more active one and there`s some evidence to support the idea that an eruption from this small one might set off an eruption from the bigger one. That could ground flights for months, which would be a serious economic problem. We`d be hit particularly badly here in the UK because we`re slap bang in the usual wind patterns for maximum dustiness and there is usually a huge amount of planes flying in and out of here.

    It`s a single very small volcano. The CO2 it`s emitting is much less than the CO2 that would have been emitted by the grounded planes. So it`s good news for the aforementioned eco-nuts.

    This gif also demonstrates something else:

    If we could put wind power stations thousands of feet up over the UK, we`d have our electricity generation sorted. There is strong, consistent wind up there. Kite-based power stations really should have a higher priority for R&D money.

    angilion, you really over estimate wind power. building a turbine that tall, which can withstand wind that strong is unrealistic.
    Many potential wind farms, places where wind energy can be produced on a large scale, are far away from places for which wind energy is best suited. Therefore, the economical nature of wind energy may take a beating in terms of costs of new substations and transmission lines.

    Wind Energy is non-dispatchable. This may also put a spanner in depending upon wind power as a primary energy supplier. Wind energy depends upon the wind in an area and therefore is a variable source of energy. The amount of wind supplied to a place and the amount of energy produced from it will depend on various factors like wind speeds and the turbine characteristics.

    angilion, you really over estimate wind power. building a turbine that tall, which can withstand wind that strong is unrealistic.

    Which is why I never mentioned doing it. Kites are a far more realistic method. Proof of concept exists - it`s being used right now.

    Wind Energy is non-dispatchable. This may also put a spanner in depending upon wind power as a primary energy supplier. Wind energy depends upon the wind in an area and therefore is a variable source of energy.

    But much less variable further up than near the ground.

    It would be plausible to use pumped hydroelectric as an energy storage device - over-produce electricity when possible, get most of the excess back from hydro when required.

    I was overstating the case, but not by that much. Wind could possibly supply a large proportion of UK electricty requirements. It`s certainly worth seriously looking into.

    "Kites are a far more realistic method. Proof of concept exists - it`s being used right now."

    Not exactly.

    The kite generators create power by spinning a rotor in a generator from the force of the unwinding cable attached to the kite - the lift from the wind pulls the cable out. When the maximum reach of the cable is reached, the kite is tipped to cause it to fall to earth.

    Energy is required to wind the cable back up - energy equal to the amount generated by unwinding it.

    Even with a two kite system - one to generate power, one to power rewinding the other - all that cable falling to earth is not going to fall neatly, it will tangle, drape, snarl, and snag. Considerable human power will be required throughout operation to release, recapture and untangle the kites.

    Wow, that cloud moves fast.

    @Nidonemo It wouldn`t work because ash build-up on the wings is not the problem. The problem is that ash gets sucked into the engines, is melted in the heat, and then solidifies before exiting the engines, causing engine failure. :D I literally just saw this on Science channel an hour ago. lol

    I`m from Iceland! And probably the most hated guy on I-A-B now... among Europeans at least.

    Only the stupid ones. You didn`t start the eruption and you can`t stop it, so it isn`t your fault. As far as I know, the best human technology can do is divert some types of lava flow (which would do nothing for the ash, obviously).

    Not exactly.

    Yes, exactly. In several countries.

    Energy is required to wind the cable back up - energy equal to the amount generated by unwinding it.

    That`s the guts of where you`re wrong. The amount of energy needed to wind the cable back in is significantly less than the amount generated by the cable being pulled out because you vary the angle of the kite.

    On the way out, it`s tilted perpendicular to the wind. It catches the wind like a sail and is pulled out with a lot of force.

    On the way back, it`s tilted parallel to the wind. The surface area presented to the wind is hugely reduced, so the air exerts far less force on the kite, so far less energy is needed to retract the cable.

    It`s like the difference between a ship under full sail and a ship with its sails furled - a huge difference.

    It`s not pure theory - kite power rigs have been built and do have a net generation of electricity.

    It`s over where I am in England....all the airports have been closed because the ash will totally screw up a planes engines. And they say now that an even bigger volcano is gonna erupt....it erupted before and that whole year was one long winter in the entire northern hemisphere because the sun just never got through the giant ash clowd

    You wont see it because its not visible with the naked eye. It mostly consists of very finely dispersed silicate particles which, while not directly dangerous to humans, could f*ck a jet engine easy.

    No airplanes are able to leave or enter Norway right now because of that volcano. People who were on vacation are stuck and aren`t able to get back in probably a couple of weeks.

    The smoke is possibly going to stay for 1-3 years, like the last time that volcano errupted.

    The Eurovision contest is hosted in Norway in a few months, and who knows how the other contestants are going to make it here.

    On the bright side, that may mean we will win again 2 years in a row. :P

    Parts of this aren`t true. I live in Donegal, which is the North-West of Ireland, and it says on this there was ash covering the whole of Ireland on the 18th..Not true..The skies were clear blue all day yesterday and today, and throughout the night...Just sayin...

    @Ruswut, i just ment they arnt dangerous at the density they are found in the atmosphere. your right that any long term exposure to higher density silcates will cause irritation of the lungs and possible silicosis.
