M4.2 quake and swarm on the Reykjanes Peninsula on 30 Aug
M4.2 quake and swarm on the Reykjanes Peninsula on 30 Aug
Yesterday, there was a lot of earthquake activity on Iceland. At noon, a swarm with about 50 quakes partly preceded and followed a magnitude 4.2 quake at 5.8 km depth beneath the Reykjanes peninsula, near the axis of the the SW volcanic rift zone. Most quakes were between magnitudes 1-2 and at around 5 km depth.

Another smaller swarm took place north of the county on the Kolbeinsey Ridge. Earthquakes have been taking place in this area for several weeks already, but as the Iceland Volcanoes and Earthquakes blog notes, there seems to be an increase lately. In 1999, a volcanic dike intrusion or submarine eruption south of the nearby Spar Fracture Zone might have taken place.
