First, an alert level Orange is released for Bardarbunga, a Strato-volcanoe under Iceland's largest glacier and now earthquakes-several of them rattling under the surface.



Some 3,000 earthquakes have taken place since Saturday in Bardarbunga—a subglacial stratovolcano located under Iceland's largest glacier. Iceland's Meteorological Office said that no earthquakes above magnitude 3 have been recorded in the last 24 hours.

I take notice that Yellowstone has officials on the alert also.

It may not be anything more than just a daily dose of doom-porn.

Enjoy, ATS!

I completely misread the title and thought it said Ireland. I immediately went "Oh no! Father Ted!" and then realized it was Iceland.

Is there anybody on here from Iceland or around there that can offer some insight into what the citizens are saying? I rely on genuine testimony more than media. Key word genuine. As for Yellowstone, RSOE EDIS categorizes it as an 8 on the Volcanic Explosivity Index (1-8. Eight being the highest), if that means anything or if it's always been like that.

There are warnings here in Scandinavia that a possible eruption is on the brink.


The aviation industry has been warned about the possibility of flight disruptions caused by activity at Iceland's largest volcano system.

Intense seismic tremors have been recorded at Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano for the past three days, although there are no signs yet of an eruption.

Iceland's Met Office has raised the risk level to the aviation industry to orange - the fourth level on a five-level scale.

Possibly connected with the recent mystery earthquake on the small island of Bornholm, Denmark ?


There was a minor earthquake on the island of Bornholm on Saturday night. The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) confirmed that a mild tremor hit the island at 00:36 on Sunday morning. GEUS is not fully staffed over the weekend, so the magnitude of the quake was not available until today.

Something is going on?

Innacurate information.

Those 3k+ quakes didn't occur in Bardarbunga—a subglacial stratovolcano but in and around it. At some point there were actually 3 different locations where those quakes were occuring.

Also Jon clearly states on his page that magma does try to find it's way up. He shows and explains it well with a clear example.

Darn, that reminds me, I have to go buy some windshield washing fluid. I suppose things are going to get dusty pretty soon.
