Thermographic exposure of the craters. Source unknown, maybe www.visir.is

Due to the bad weather situation and a dense cloud layer over the volcano summit at the 14th of May 2010, it was only possible for the islandic coast guard to get the shape of the new craters by using a thermal camera. Bigger crater 500m in diameter and the two smaller apprx 200m
