Illustration depicting an ash cloud rising from Surtslinger, a small vent which appeared from the sea next to the island of Surtsey in 1965. A light curtain of ash is seen falling at left, just downwind of the eruption. Violent eruptions may cause very much larger ash deposits, causing extensive damage to livestock and crops. Surtsey itself appeared from the sea off the coast of Iceland in 1963.
