It says

"At 9pm tonight a second volcano has erupted in Iceland!" ( www.ireport.com... )

Do they mean another VOLCANO eruption or the second FISSURE????

And where do you guys find these things - I am so grateful you post the links, or I would never learn of them!

Thank you!!!!

So has there been any info yet about the gasses being released by this thing and whether it posses a threat to anyone?


Also just found this, earthquakes in the area.

They mean that new fissure at the same volcano, it expands quite quickly.

A video here: (Norwegian) www.vgtv.no...

They say that the eruption is getting more energetic all the time.

Absolutely and completely mad, and yes you would be racing me there. You could not keep me away from that. In fact if I had money I would be off round the world looking at volcanoes. I would love to get on the silver fireproof suit and go right up to the lava flows.

Weird angle on the Vodafone camera today. Can't make out if they are looking for something specific. It was still pointing in the normal direction when I went to bed at 6 am this morning, and here we are at 12 mid day and I am back in front of the 'puter. Must be why I am PuterMan!


Look at these tremor plots. Looks as if she is still going strong. In fact I think something may be happening.

Is it just me, or is the camera moving? Are there high winds causing it, or is it earthquakes? Any ideas?

If you are referring to that sort of rippling effect that is just the camera. I have noticed it before and on the Vodafone cams, and it seems to get worse in lower light.

Note that all of these cam are self adjusting for light levels and that can cause some sudden changes in brightness of the shots.

Thank you, I thought the camera was moving. Also, thank you for all your great info and links. This is so very exciting. My stupid computer at home is in the shop, I can't wait to get it back so I can keep a closer eye on it. Wow, what an amazing time we are living in!!!!! I love watching the earth come to life, it is so beautiful!!!!!!!!!

For those of you who are using Quake Data, and who are interested in getting the plot of tremors I posted above, you can use the web cam snapper to dowmload the plot on a regular basis as it is a png file and therefore as far as Quake Data is concerned could be a static cam.

The refresh on the web is 600 (seconds) and the address of the png image is:

[prev]http://hraun.vedur.is/ja/Katla2009/eyja_trem_auto.png[/prev]

Sorry that was the only way I could stop it from turning it into a link. Even 'code' did not work. Copy the bit inside 'prev' obviously. If you leave QD running and have set it up to snap every 600 seconds you should get the latest updat plot every 10 minutes. Obviously you can set if for longer apart if you wish. Try 3600 for 1 hour.

I called the prefix EyjaPlot, and thus I get timed and dated files e.g. EyjaPlot20100402_184225.jpg

There is minor problem in that the file is actually a PNG but Windows Picture and Fax Viewer and most graphics programs are intelligent enough to realise the error. The problem lies in the Windows API call to download the file I think so I will fix that for the next release.

You can of course also rename the file to a .PNG

Here is the latest plot (19:00 UTC) Is it just me or does this still look a bit dodgy?


[edit on 2/4/2010 by PuterMan]
A wee update: This is the page the plot comes from. It is stuffed with things - GPS, plots etc and auto updates every 60 seconds. Take a look

Find the plot on the second row entitled "Órói frá jarðskjálftastöðvum næst Eyjafjallajökli frá upphafi gossins". This is the tremors plot from just before the eruption and puts the plot above in perspective, but I don't think makes it any less scary in some respects. All good stuff here and you can see how they really did know this was coming.

It looks like there is another fissure opening up below the big one. That area of lava flow and ash looks way bigger than yesterday.

www.vodafone.is...


I have figured out Vodafone schedule, seems like they go offline about 16 hundred hours, they are running on a 30 hour clock for some reason, then they come back on again at 12 midnight ( pacific coast time) not sure what time there, 7 a.m. or so.

anyway, happy saturday Gang!

I'm watching a trail of steam (lava flow) work its way from the eruption to the right downhill towards the centre of the screen of the Eyjafjallajökull frá Þórólfsfelli webcam (eldgos.mila.is... ) (the Fimmvörðuhálsi is disconnected) and wonder if we'll see it cascade over the cliff face?

Thanks for that. I also thought there was a new one. I am not sure about your schedule however. As far as I can see it does not go off, but they do fiddle with the angles at some very strange times like 5 in the morning BST (4 UTC).

Just came across this. It is not dated so I don't know if it is current but it appears to be.


Towering 1,200ft above the tropical stillness of the Sunda Strait in Indonesia, one of the most terrifying volcanoes the world has ever known has begun to stir once more. Almost 126 years to the day since Krakatoa first showed signs of an imminent eruption, stunning pictures released this week prove that the remnant of this once-enormous volcano is bubbling, boiling and brimming over. For more information, see THIS LINK. (Image credit: Mark Fuller)

It's OK it is OLD NEWS, but I am leaving it is since the pictures in the link are stunning.

Here is an interesting find As far as I can see if is a volcano satellite image browser. You zoom in on the map to find the volcano you want and click on it. Select ASTER frames and you get the latest ASTER satellite images of the volcano. I find it a bit slow and jerky in the response, but that may be my slow connection.

I believe it already does go over the cliff face.

We just can't see it.

Does the new volcano have a name? See the camera is now named Útsýni (frá Fimmvörðuhálsi)

Utsyni means "view" I use google chrome and can translate that page.

All this volcano talk gave me a bad dream last night. My family and I were in Seattle, when a volcano went (I said it was St Helens in my dream, but that is to far?). We tried to flee the lava flow to only be met by another one coming from the other direction, forcing us to make a path another way. Confused on the 2nd flow, I turned to see another volcano going off. Another dream was massive tsunami's hitting a low lying pacific island, flooding their low-lands. Along with American's being forced off the island by the islander's govt.

Well, when I wake up I see in the news,


BALI, Indonesia - A Swedish tourist fell to his death into the crater of an active volcano Wednesday on the Indonesian resort island of Bali.

www.msnbc.msn.com...

News furthers to mention dry crater, so no magma induced death.



As for Eyjafjallajokull, is it just me or did a 3rd fissure open up or something? Last night's camera shot was extensive in at least 3 different areas of glow.

OK, I never thought to translate it. It still says Eyja on the other camera so I sort of assumed they had named it.

My bad for being lazy!!

Can I recommend a few days away from volcano watching, and probably earthquakes and conspiracies generally?


I am so glad I don't (remember) dream(s)

She has blown a new vent I think, about where I thought I saw something and then decided it was not.
