Bardarbunga volcano update: Eruption continues at record-breaking lava output rate

No significant changes have occurred at the ongoing eruption in Holuhraun and the seismic crisis. The eruption itself continues with steady, very large lava output and is on its way to become the largest event in the past 150 years on Iceland.
So far, it has erupted approx. 0.5 cubic kilometers of lava, covered 40 square kilometers at an average depth of 12 meters.
During the past 150 years, only the Hekla volcano eruption in 1947 (which however lasted 13 months) has produced more lava. If the current activity goes on for another 2 weeks at the same rate, it will beat this record.
Gas releases are record-breaking figures: approx 10-20,000 tons of gasses (mainly SO2) are released each day.
A road (Gæsavatnaleið) used to access the eruption has been covered by lava flows, making it more difficult to geologist to get to the eruption.

Seismic activity
A magnitude 5.2 earthquake occurred this morning under the Bárdarbunga caldera, which keeps sinking at 50 cm per day. Its total subsidence is almost 30 meters now.
Earthquake activity has slowly increased again under the active dyke, which could indicate increasing pressure and involves an increased risk that new fissures open up, possibly under the glacier.
