Bardarbunga volcano update: Eruption continues

Wednesday Dec 03, 2014 18:26 PM | DOOR: T

Landsat-8 image of the area of the eruption (NASA)
Landsat-8 image of the area of the eruption (NASA)
Thermal image from 1 Dec. shows considerable magmatic activity in the lava and in just over 24 hours it has stretched about 450 m to NNA through the new extrusion at the northeastern margin. West of the lava lake, the lava river now branches towards north. The southern margin is also active; a new extrusion seems to be forming due south from the lava lake and something similar is taking place just east of that. On this image, the plume appears like a brownish cloud over the middle part of the lava field and pillows of steam still seem to hover over the eastern part. Contrarily, the green effects are simply artefacts and tricks of light. (Image: Institute of Earth Sciences)

The eruption continues with little changes. While most of the lava now remains on top of the already emplaced lava field, more than 75 square km large, several lateral outbreaks are active as well.
The most active one, to the north, has advanced more than 450 m in a single day.
Seismic activity remains high under the volcano - yesterday, 2 earthquakes above magnitude 2 occurred under Bárðarbunga. No significant earthquake activity occurs under the erupting dyke, suggesting the situation is stable.

De lava lake binnen Baugur krater op Holuhraun
Monday, Nov 17, 2014
Winterse omstandigheden blijven maken het moeilijk om te studeren de horizontalis uitbarsting op Holuhraun. Zeldzame kansen voor visuele waarneming bleek echter dat de Baugur-krater opgehouden te hoog lavafonteinen uitwerpen en omgevormd tot een langwerpige, kokend lava lake. Magma lijkt te worden opwellen in dit lava meer tegen hetzelfde tarief als begin November effusie.

Sunday, Nov 09, 2014
The volcanic eruption at Holuhraun gives no signs of weakening and continues to eject an impressive lava fountain from the central Baugur crater at a rate similar to the past few weeks. This record-breaking eruption started on the 31st of August 2014 and formed a more than 17 km long lava flow. Using the successive outlines of this lava flow as drawn on a radar image from the Icelandic Coast Guard, researchers from the Institute of Earth Sciences estimated that by now the lava has covered an area of 70 km². ...
