Volcano calmer, planes flying, fingers crossed

Expert volcanogist prediction from April 16th:
"We expect it to last for two days or more or something."
-- Armann Hoskuldsson, University of Iceland

Professor Hoskuldsson's prediction has been 100% correct so far.

"Flights across Europe are expected to return to "100 percent" on Thursday -- seven days after ash from an Icelandic volcano forced the shutdown of airspace and stranded thousands of passengers around the world, the air traffic agency Eurocontrol said."

"Scientists in Iceland said Wednesday the volcano has decreased its ash output by 80 percent compared to the first day of eruption, April 14."

"Armann Hoskuldsson, a volcanologist at the University of Iceland, told a briefing that the volcano's output is now "insignificant," though it will continue to be active for a while."
