A public service announcement

Icelandic volcanic eruption

Those are satellite photographs of  the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, in visible (left) and infrared (right) light.  According to the New York Times, you pronounce the volcane's name:

EY-ya-fyat-lah-YOH-kuht

The “EY” rhymes with the word “bay.” The “k” is softer than an English “k,” almost like a hard “g.” And the “t” at the end kind of sticks for a second and pulls away with a hint of a glottal “l.”

EY-ya-fyat-lah-YOH-kuht
 
Or you can refer to it as, you know, that volcano over there, in Iceland. That generally works, too.


Thank you to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology for the stunning images.
