Does the ash cloud have carbon dioxide it it?

definition of ash : ash is a residual product after any combustion process after a perfect combustion of any fuel we get ash hence it is a product which not have any combustible product in it . that's why i think ash does not contain carbon compound because carbon is highly combustible . in this world everything contain carbon inside it but i think ash is a alone example of non carbon product...may b it contain very few amount of carbon but after again burning it does not have any carbon . i think so.

What were the primary effects of the eruption of Eyjafjallajoekull?

Well,

OBVIOUSLY the eruption melted a frozen glacier and released MASSIVE amounts of water into the flaming lava pit, causing a GINORMOUS steam cloud to escape and blowing the top of the mountain.

Clearly.

Why was a volcano named eyjafjallajokull?

Often to understand names of places and things, we need to consider the native language, meaning the language in that country or area.



Eyjafjallajökull (also called E15) is the Icelandic name for "Island mountain glacier". Eyjafjallajökull is actually one of the smaller ice caps that covers the cauldron-like volcanic top. The Middle English word ikel, like -icle of English icicle, is combined with the word jökull, meaning glacier or ice cap. Eyjafjöll is made up of two words: eyja (genitive plural of ey, meaning eyot or island), and the plural word fjöll, meaning fells or mountains). Both together literally means: "the mountains of the islands". The word fjalla is the genitive plural of fjöll; the word Eyjafjalla is the genitive form of Eyjafjöll and means: "of the Eyjafjöll". So going piece by piece, the name Eyjafjallajökull means "Islands' Mountains' ice cap".


It's an easy name for an Icelander to say!

How did the Iceland volcano that erupted effect people?

It actually didn't effect the people that much because it happened where there live a very very small amound of people, so the people that lived nearby had to leave to a safer place, other than that it didn't effect so much. Ofcourse there has been some damage to the nature and the roads and the air is a bit "ashy" but it seems that the wind blows the ash away from iceland.

The volcano eruppted by slowly drifting over a hot spot, which heats up the magma under the volcano so it starts to rise slowly creating an eruption. After the lava exited out of the main hole it starts to cool. But, it leaves ashes and heavy smoke which humans are unable to breathe in. AND BECAUSE IT DID

How is ash from the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano being produced?

The volcano is located on a constructive plate boundary (two tectonic plates moving apart) so there wouldn't usually be ash being fired into the sky, just lava pouring out.

The changing factor is the ice, the covering ice meant that the main vent was covered so pressure could build up. Now that the force has blasted a whole in the ice, large pieces of ice are meeting superheated rock. When you try to cool something like rock really quickly it explodes into dust. This dust is then blasted miles into the air where the wind carries it across the world.

This type of eruption is known technically as a phreatomagmatic eruption.
