Hekla volcano (Iceland): news & activity updates

Hekla volcano (Iceland): another volcano due for an eruption on Iceland

Wednesday May 25, 2011 13:34 PM |
A new published study presents measurements of inflation cycles at Hekla volcano, suggesting that Hekla is ready for another eruption.
Hekla is one of Iceland's most active volcanoes and usually erupts very explosively, followed by large discharges of magma. Its last eruption occurred from 26 February to 8 March 2000 when about 0.19 km3 of magma was erupted. Statistically, Hekla erupts on average every 10 years and it is now also on the "waiting list".
