How Long do Volcanic Eruptions Last?

Eyjafjallajokull volcano

Eyjafjallajokull Iceland Volcano

After the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull volcano, I was curious to know how long do volcano eruptions last? I found the below table from VolcanoLive. Almost 28% of eruption last for 1month to 6 months. It is scary to see that almost 75% of the volcano  lasts more than one week and more than 56% last more than a month.

Length of Eruption % of Eruptions Cumulative Total %
< 1 day 10 10
1 day to 1 week 14 24
1 week to 1 month 20 44
1 to 6 months 28 72
6 months to 1 year 12 84
1 to 2 years 7 91
2 to 5 years 5 96
5 to 10 years 2 98
10 to 20 years 1 99
> 20 years 1 100
