Ash clouds that spouted from a volcano in Iceland and drifted across Europe caused the largest international airspace shutdown in years and threatened to choke air travel for days and pose problems for months.
The volcano, under a glacier known as Eyjafjallajokull, began erupting several weeks ago for the first time since the 1820s. It exploded more violently early Wednesday, spewing ash 30,000 feet into the air.
"Volcanoes are notoriously irregular in their behavior," said Pall Einarsson, professor of geophysics at the University of Iceland. "If there is any rule about them it is: There is no rule."
