My glacier will have to change name from Sólheimajökull to Svartijökull = sunny glacier to black glacier
i put some more photos on "my pictures"
these pictures are compared from satellite images taken by NASA on the EO-1 and ASTER bands, the white one is from April 6th. and the black one from April 17th. these show that most of my glacier has been covered in ash by the second eruption (Eyjafjallajökull), but was untouched by the first eruption (Fimmvörduháls).
so suddenly i have some more things i can add to my thesis...it will be exciting to see how this ash layer will affect the melting during this summer...
