Una pequeña avalancha glacial ocurrió en Volcán Grimsvotn en Islandia el 29 de enero de 2012. La causa de la inundación fue probablemente no volcánica, pero fuertes lluvias y temperaturas inusualmente altas que causó causaron nieve derretir. Las inundaciones dañaron partes de la carretera de circunvalación entre Núpsvötn y Gígjukvísl en la llanura de inundación de Skeiðarársandur y de Gígjukvísl.

Signals of a possible impending eruption at Grimsvötn volcano under the icecap of Vatnajökullremain remain uncertain. Scientist measured an increase in seismic tremor at Grimsvötn, probably caused by the meltwater flow increase, but no volcanic tremor. The composition of the meltwater indicates that much of the water has been melted caused by increased geothermal heat flow. No other signs of an impending eruption are detectable (so far).

Grímsvötn volcano on Iceland might be heating up to a new eruption. Recently, it has been observed that the amount of glacial meltwater from Grímsvötn emerging from under the thick ice cap of Vatnajökull covering the massive volcano has doubled. ...màs
