The flow of magma of the Icelandic Eyjafjallajokull volcano has decreased 10 times in comparison with the first hours of its eruption, scientists from the Geophysics Institute of the University of Iceland said on Wednesday.

The current amount of magma is estimated at 30 cubic meters, or 75 tons per second, while at the beginning of the eruption, it was 750 tons per second.

The seismic activity has remained at the same level; however the pressure under the volcano has slightly decreased, according to the scientists.

The eruption on the Eyjafjallajokull, which began on last week, disabled air traffic throughout central and northern Europe, leaving thousands of travelers stranded. Most European airports resumed operations on Wednesday.
