Hi westcoast. The camera you are looking at is the Katla cam, but is pointing at Eyjafjallajokull. It actually says that on the bottom.

This camera is located to the south of Katla and normally is at an angle of 336 degrees. You would expect to see steam, although I think that was cloud, and of course ash cloud as in you last picture.

It is difficult to get GE to exactly the right spot but roughly this is the view of Eyjafjoll from the position of the Katla camera.

Thanks for the info....good thing I posted somewhere earlier that I wasn't 100% positive it was looking at Katla even though the link is titled Katla. I swear I did, really really....I don't look quite so stupid now, right?


Anyways....I guess it just confirms the fact that the ground on top of a massive errupting volcano is, uh.......HOT.


Seriously though, are there any cameras currently now that are actually looking at Katla? I give up trying to figure it out, my icelandic dialect is not good.

Oh, and I 100% agree with your post about being informed. Big difference between information and panic. I myself had been wondering just how big this system was in comparisson with Yellowstone. Thank you much for answering it.

No there is nothing looking at Katla at present as far as I know. but Katla is not doing anything yet. It is unlikely that it would go off without considerable warning beforehand.

Something is brewing at Eyjafjoll however. There is an definite increase in the tremors to the level that the quake went off yesterday. Possibly another small quake in the offing shortly.

I apologize for my remarks PuterMan, I look up to you in these threads. I worded my comments wrong, I was just expanding on the fact that this isn't "boom we all die" like some people tend to believe.

As for technology saving us, I disagree. Yes in the realm of basalt flows we can not magically stop miles of lava. However, we're working on self-contained farms within skyscraper like structures. A full temperature drop even 20 degrees wouldn't stop that. While world wide populations may starve, humanity itself would not end, even in a worse case scenario...

That was all I was trying to say. Again I apologize if I seemed a bit brash about it all, I'm having some real life problems that have me a tad edgy.

No problem, and no apology required, but is accepted.

Unfortunately the idea of an urban skyscraper farm has not been realised yet, and I won't go into the problems of indoor growing in those circumstances.

Aside from that what is the first place that the starving populace will ransack for food?

Hey Puterman - what think you of the current tremor plots! Quite an uptick, eh?

Hi and good morning!
I have made som modest reflections about Katla.
Last eruption was in 1918 and lasted 24 days.

I haven't found any data so far about ash spreading, but in Norway the average temp for 1919 dropped 0.75 degrees compared to a normal year, according to the Norwegian Met.Office.

It has to be mentioned that the period from 1915 to 1920 was the coldest period in the last century.

Based upon this I think that maybe Katla isn't that dangerous after all, and the biggest concerns are about flooding from the glacier and lava spreading.

I will also recommend you to go to the Islandic site linked below, as it contains a lot of information about the current situation, and general information and updates about the other volcanoes on the island.
The site is in english.

Part of the scientific conspiracy uncovered



This is a quote by a vulcanologist in Iceland that I came across on the Eruptions! thread.
Link to the post


We'd really need to see the depth of the tremor source, the so-called "centroid", in order to better understand. And that's a type of data that's not made public but is reserved for the interpretation of experts in volcano seismology and eventually finds its way into scientific publications.


The scientific publications are the one you have to pay $35 or more for!

On the contrary, let's hope we do see more of them, just not too many. More is good as it releases the tension. Note how the tremors decreased in intensity after each small bump.

(I had posted that one by the way)

I did notice the decrease in tremor after the quakes - but it is the location moving east that was my concern.

Going off-line for about a week. I have to get some things done and once I get in here nothing gets done!!


I will still be monitoring Iceland and quakes, but I will not be participating unless something big happens, or someone needs 'enlightening' about Hekla and/or Katla (unless of course they do blow
)

See you folks in about 7 days time.

Personally I do not feel that the particular position of that last quake represents a concern. It may just have been from the relief of pressure by the melting of the icecap.

Will greatly miss your input, Puterman, hope you get it all done and get back to us asap!!


For those who asked where the locations of the tremor recorders were (god/esk/hau etc), below is a location map for these graphs: hraun.vedur.is...

Revelation 9:1-2, King James version:
"9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit."

I wonder if this could apply to Yellowstone?

...just thinking.....

Still lurking every now and again!

Have a laugh with this one

And this one

Enjoy!


Re plots: You will probably find this one better as it is a page with links to all the plots, GPS etc.

Keep your eye on the Eruptions! threads folks. In particular look at this link. You will get more information about what is actually going on in Iceland in here (Eruptions!) than anywhere else. There are at least two if not three Icelandic geologists who contribute.

Yellowstone would be explosive. That sounds more like a description of Iceland

Interesting topic about the level of earthquakes this year.

On a more serious note (not that the other is not) take a look at this post on Eruptions!

Nobody seems to talk about THIS volcano (see below) but this one's the real stinker. Short clip of history :

"Iceland also has a lot of fluorine, which contributed to the deadly effects of 1783's Laki eruption. Fluorine-laced gas killed people as far away as England and led to a surge in chronic illness. Fluoridosis killed between half and three-quarters of Iceland's farm animals."
