Summary:A simple schematic of the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano summit, crater and ash plume as seen on Blue Peter's Make It. It is intended as a simple guide to understanding how volcanoes such as Eyjafjallajökull are influenced by tectonic plate activity along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It also shows the route of the floodwater from melted glacier ice to the sea. The model is not to scale. The height of the volcano is highly exaggerated.
