Bardarbunga volcano (Iceland): ongoing seismic unrest

Earthquakes under and near Bardarbunga volcano during the past week
Earthquakes under and near Bardarbunga volcano during the past week
Ever since the large Holuhraun fissure eruption (Aug 2014-Mar 2015), the volcano has remained restless. Over the past months, the volcano's seismic activity has been showing a slow increase.
The quakes have been concentrated at shallow depths under its central caldera, and the northeastern fissure system (in particular, near Herdubreid volcano). So far, the frequent earthquake swarms have been small and rarely contained quakes above magnitude 3; an eruption in a very near future seems unlikely for now.
However, they indicate that the volcano's storage system is probably recharging with new shallow magma intrusions; a new eruption of Bardarbunga in a not too distant future (months to years) would certainly not be a big surprise.

The eruption at Holuhraun continues at similar levels as lately, the Icelandic Met Office reports in its updates. The decreasing trend, however, is becoming visible in a significant drop of the lava lake level inside the Baugur crater above the main vents, seen in the photo above. Lees alle

Kaart van de dikte van de Holuhraun lava stroom veld (Scientific Advisory Board)
De uitbarsting, nu gaande is voor meer dan 150 dagen, nog steeds met kleine veranderingen. Hoewel het is begonnen met het zeer langzaam, afname van intensiteit, het blijft indrukwekkend en magma kwijting is nog steeds een indrukwekkend ca. 100 kubieke meter per seconde. ... Lees alle
