The sulfur dioxide (SO2) pollution from the Holuhraun eruption has spread to Germany, Spiegel Online reports. With wind blowing from the northwest, the pollution is being felt further to the east than previously.
Earlier this month, people in Norway and Sweden complained about the pollution.
Both the German and Austrian Met Offices have measured the pollution in central Europe. However, neither in Germany nor elsewhere outside Iceland is the concentration of SO2 high enough to pose a threat to humans and animals.
