Scientist captures egg-shaped lobes in Iceland

Professor Matthew Thirlwall, who works at the Department of Earth Sciences at the Royal Holloway University of London, explained the video shows a new flow of lava, the formation of pahoehoe lobes, as well as lots of egg-like lobes and breakouts.

The egg-shaped lobes are being torn apart by hot lava from the inside, he added.

The volcano on the Reykjanes Peninsula, some 30 kilometres southwest of the capital Reykjavik, started to erupt on March 19 and has become a tourist attraction, drawing thousands of visitors.

Volcanologists have no idea how long the eruption will continue, saying it could stop soon or continue for years, possibly even decades.
