Caption: Icelandic volcanoes. Artwork showing how Iceland (left) is part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, with the land on either side moving apart (white arrows) and volcanoes (red) erupting from the ridge to form this island in the northern Atlantic. At right, an Icelandic volcano has erupted and sent a column of ash rising high into the atmosphere. The ash (grey) is shown circling the globe (red arrows) at altitudes that causes disruption to air traffic and can cause grounding of aircraft. Here, the ash has entered the Northern Hemisphere's polar jet stream, a circulating current of air that flows west to east at around 7-12 kilometres altitude.
