Scientists fix seismometer and communication equipment over Bardarbunga volcano, IcelandIceland on Friday temporarily banned air traffic near its largest volcano after a lava field erupted overnight, threatening a repeat of the global travel chaos four years ago when another peak blew. The aviation "red alert" for Bardarbunga volcano was lifted in the late morning when it became clear that the eruption was minor and did not release large quantities of ash. During the alert, Iceland's airports remained opened with no disruption to flights, according to the national airport operator Isavia. In 2010, another Icelandic volcanic eruption caused the biggest closure of European airspace in peacetime, halting 100,000 flights and stranding eight million passengers.
