It seems at least in Germany, the previously predicted association between global warming and increased volcanic activity has escaped all media attention reporting of the volcano in Iceland.

Freysteinn Sigmundsson has been quoted in the Washington Post that the glacier above Eyjafjallajokull is too small or light to contribute to the current eruption. However, that Iceland and Europe should expect larger or more frequent volcanic eruptions as a response to global warming.

Modeling in 2008 by Carolina Pagli and Freysteinn Sigmundsson, published in Geophysical Research Letters (7 May) indicated a substantial increased magma beneath the Vatnajokull ice cap as a result of ice melting.
