The Icelandic Met Office (IMO) reported that in mid-May deformation data (GPS and InSAR measurements) started to show again signs of inflation
, suggesting that a third intrusion since the beginning of this year is occurring west of Thorbjörn. The intrusion began around mid of May but the seismic activity started to increase
toward the end of the month (30 May). About 2000 earthquakes
have been detected since then and several events are located East of Thorbjörn, few kilometers North of the town of Grindavík. The largest earthquake of this swarm occurred on 13 June with magnitude M 3.5.

The Icelandic Met Office (IMO) reported that the seismic activity has decreased on Reykjanes peninsula in recent weeks. During the past week (20-27 May) around 120 earthquakes were located there, fewer than in the previous week when they were just more than 200. The largest earthquake was recorded with magnitude M 2.1. ... Read all

Reykjanes volcano on the peninsula of the same name is a vast fissure system in SW Iceland. It is located where the Mid Atlantic Ridge emerges onto land. Stile eruttivo tipico
It forms a vast area with many eruptive fissures, lava fields, hot springs and mud pools. In 2000, a large earthquake lowered the water level in Lake Kleifarvatn by 5 metres, but has gradually returned to normal since then.

The Reykjanes volcanic system at the SW tip of the Reykjanes Peninsula, where the Mid Atlantic Ridge rises above sea level, comprises a broad area of postglacial basaltic crater rows and small shield volcanoes.
The Reykjanes volcanic system is the westernmost of a series of four closely-spaced fissure systems that extend diagonally across the Reykjanes Peninsula. Most of the volcanic system is covered by Holocene lavas and eruptions have occurred in historical time during the 13th century at several locations on the NE-SW-trending fissure system.
