A huge volcanic eruption in Iceland emitted on average three times as much of a toxic gas as all European industry combined, a study has revealed. Discharge of lava from the eruption at Bárðarbunga volcano released a huge mass — up to 120,000 tonnes per day — of sulphur dioxide gas, which can cause acid rain and respiratory problems.
