  1. Seems to have been quite a change to the EQs in recent days. Any theory's from those here more knowledgeable that me on what is happening?
  2. Yes that was also my comment earlier today, it seems like the larger ones are more frequent at the moment with less smaller ones in between. I wonder if we are on the start of a more general collapse, everything is so fragmented from the last month of rumbling that each EQ now triggers more to collapse and so on. I guess time will tell. Those EQ's down in the Atlantic are interesting, as was the one near Portugal a few weeks back. Interesting to see the movement and stresses on a much larger scale than just Iceland.
  3. Wonder if we are on the edge now of something significant happening or just an upturn for a few hours?
  4. Larger earthquakes so far today: 18.09.2014 10:46:36 64.670 -17.409 8.8 km 3.8 99.0 6.5 km ENE of Bárðarbunga 18.09.2014 06:05:17 64.669 -17.389 0.3 km 3.4 99.0 7.3 km ENE of Bárðarbunga 18.09.2014 03:17:08 64.673 -17.406 6.4 km 4.5 99.0 6.8 km ENE of Bárðarbunga
  5. So I wonder if that means more magma is flowing into the magma chamber than can get down the fissure and thus its pushing back up?

  7. http://avd.is/en/?p=276 This just in. Full details above. The eruptive activity at Holuhraun continues at similar intensity. Lava flows at similar rates as yesterday. The lava is flowing towards East into Jökulsá á Fjöllum, slightly narrowing its path. No explosive activity due to the lava and river water interaction has been observed, but steam rises from the lava. Scientists flying over the Bárðarbunga area yesterday reported no new changes in the surface. Air quality in urban areas in the East of Iceland (very poor from the details) Earthquake activity in the caldera of Bárðarbunga remains similar to that of the last days. Epicenters are distributed along the northern and south-eastern caldera fault. Earthquake activity at the dyke tip has decreased. More than 50 events have been detected since midnight. Low frequency tremor has decreased. GPS observations: There are minor crustal movements around the dyke supporting the assumption that the amount of magma flowing into the dyke slightly exceeds the flow of magma erupted to the surface. Considering the time period since the beginning of the eruption slow movements towards the Bárðarbunga caldera indicate continuing subsidence of the caldera. A new GPS station was installed on top of Bárðarbunga yesterday to monitor the subsidence of the caldera floor.
  8. Seems to be a lot of thick billowing cloud on Bada 2 and its shaking a lot, quite difficult to see and Bada 1 seems to show the plume moving right off camera but with some odd yellow/red tints in it.
  9. If it went with the same size explosion as Tambora the explosion would be heard as far away as Paris, Stockholm and Berlin.
  10. The million dollar question is when? What will be the tipping point of no return be reached? How many more earthquakes will happen before this point is reached?
  11. I can't see the cams from my work laptop, I think my browser is too old. Is White van man showing on Cam 2 like yesterday? He has a hell of a view, or a view of hell depending on how you look at it. It must be 'relatively' safe there because that radar is a rather expensive piece of kit and I expect they would rather not loose it under a lava flow, flood or hit by a projectile.
  12. What a stunning set of photos! The colours and the landscape just beautiful.
  13. http://www.ruv.is/frett/fyrsta-myndbandid-af-nyju-sprungunum This is a good view. Is that the edge of the glacier bottom right? Wording on the page translates as follows: 00:12 it is to the new fissure opened in the morning, close Dyngjujökli, and former crater. Lara Ómarsdóttir reporter took a video of the new volcanic rift just north of the perimeter Dyngjujökuls this morning is the first video clip of the new crack.
