"...Fewer earthquakes seem to follow the event than in the previous eruption, but more lava is being extruded.
At 07 AM the lava flow was around 1 km wide and 3 km long towards northeast. The thickness was estimated a few meters, the flow about 1000 m3 pr second.
Approximately 500 earthquakes were detected in the area and smaller than before. The strongest earthquake, M3.8 was in the Bárðarbunga caldera. Poor weather conditions prevail in the area, which makes detection of smaller earthquakes difficult.
GPS measurements show continued movements north of Dyngjujökull."
"Gas emissions rise to a few hundred meters above the fissure.
Weather conditions make it difficult to follow the progression of the eruption, but scientists are in the area, using every opportunity to acquire information on gas and lava outflow." (IMO status update)
