Bardarbunga volcano update: eruption continues with little changes
Montag Okt 13, 2014 16:18 | VON: T
Updated map of the lava flows as of 9 Oct (Univ. Iceland / IMO)
During the past days, the eruption has continued at similar intensity and with similar lava effusion rates as before. The flow field continues to expand mainly to the north and east and cover now more than 55 square kilometers, with an estimated volume of approx. 0.77 cubic km.
Epected area of air pollution from the eruption today (IMO)
At the main vent along the Holuhraun fissure, a violently degassing lava lake has formed, while fountains have decreased or almost disappeared.
Seismic activity remains mostly at the Bardarbunga caldera, which keeps subsiding. 21 earthquakes greater than M3.0 were recorded over the last 48 hours in or around the caldera. The largest ones were M5.2 at 08:43 and 21:23 on Sunday.
Little seismic activity is now detected in the northern part of the dyke and around the eruption site.
GPS measurements show minor movements. No great changes were detected.
Air pollution with SO2 from the eruption remains significant - depending on wind directions mostly to the N and E of the eruption site.
