Eyjafjallajokull, located southeast of Reykjavik…

…and west of Mýrdalsjökull, is a volcanic area completely covered by an ice cap.  That volcano, long dormant, erupted in spectacular fashion in 2010 and brought air travel to the North Atlantic and western Europe to a complete halt for nearly a week.
