Hekla volcano (Iceland): news & activity updates

Hekla volcano (Iceland): small earthquakes

Strain and earthquakes under Hekla volcano (Iceland Met Office)
Strain and earthquakes under Hekla volcano (Iceland Met Office)
The volcano remains restless, but without any indication of an impending eruption (however, it is notorious for not giving much warning either).
3 tiny earthquakes, all below magnitude 2, occurred today and add to the ongoing series of occasional small quakes under the volcano.
Current GPS and strain (volume changes of the bedrock, a strong indicator immediately prior to an eruption, while magma is pushing upwards) measurements show no significant variations.

De vulkaan media-aandacht heeft getrokken en nauw wordt gecontroleerd als men dat het is "ready" voor een nieuwe uitbarsting gelooft (hoewel er geen huidige aanwijzingen dat een dreigt). ... [meer...]
GPS-measured deformation of HEKR station (Univ. Iceland), north of the volcano
Monday, Jul 01, 2013
De trend van de snelle inflatie die begon in April niet heeft voortgezet, maar gedeeltelijk was teruggekeerd en aanzienlijke vervorming is gestopt voor nu. Niets suggereert voor nu dat een uitbarsting dreigt, maar Hekla is bekend voor het verstrekken van dichtbij geen (seismisch) waarschuwing voordat uitbarstingen. [meer...]
GPS-measured deformation of HEKR station (Univ. Iceland), north of the volcano
Tuesday, Apr 30, 2013
The famous Icelandic volcano is showing further signs that indicate an eruption could occur in a near future. Significant rapid inflation, concentrated in the northern part of the volcano, has been detected since early April and likely represents accumulation of rising magma underneath. ... [meer...]

The Icelandic Meteorological Office has informed authorities about unusual seismicity at Hekla volcano, which could be a precursor to a new eruption, and increased the volcanic alert level to yellow. Monitoring of the volcano will be intensified, as Hekla is not only one of the most active, but also one of the potentially most hazardous volcanoes of the country. The last eruption was in March 2000. On average, the volcano has been erupting about every 10 years, and it would statistically seen be due for a new one. ... [meer...]
Earthquakes near Hekla since beginning of August
Friday, Sep 14, 2012
Small earthquakes continue to occur around and beneath the volcano. At the moment, it does not seem a significant increase and we have no other data suggesting that the volcano should erupt soon (although it very well could). [meer...]
