The eruption of the Bárðarbunga volcano in Iceland is over, six months after it began, authorities says.
The volcano, located under a glacier southeast in Iceland, erupted at the end of August last year.
Air surveillance and aerial photos shows that lava has stopped flowing from the volcano, said the Icelandic Meteorological Office. But still sulfur dioxide and other gases in the air above the volcano area are registered, and the authorities are going to monitor the volcano for a while longer.
The eruption of Bárðarbunga did not lead to major disruptions in air traffic as the big eruption from the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier did in 2010.
