Iceland weather 2010 and consequences of the Eruption.

Distribution of ash thickness, Eyjafjallajökull eruption  Discharge from Jökulsá á Fjöllum, during 5 summers
source: Iceland Met Office 

ENG: I now have some answer to my questions. The Iceland Met Office published 2 very interesting reports: one about the fairly warm year of 2010 in Iceland and one about the consequences of the ashes of the Eyjafjallajökull eruption. It's very interesting and you can see that I experienced big above average river floods all around the Vatnajökull. This shows my not so idiot reaction of walking onto 2 glaciers without crampons! The water discharge of the Jökulsá á Fjöllum is roughly 40% higher in July 2010 (black) compared to the previous 4 summers. And obviously was the trend for all other rivers.
