Same here, Danish though.

Gonna watch the sunsets the next few weeks. The weather in Europe has been pretty weird lately, so this could really turn things interesting...

Yeah exactly, to me the weather has been crazy all winter. On my birthday (8th of march) it was lightly snowing, and now a couple of weeks later it will be 20C tomorrow. Anyways.. I don't know, I'm worried about those gasses and all.

As a morning update here are the most recent earthquakes for Iceland

the dark blue dots are quakes 36 to 48 hours ago
the light blue 24 to 36 hours
and the yellow 12 to 24 hours

sorry... I don't know where the volcanoes are in relation to the quakes

Edit to add:

Earthquake count:
◦Magnitude less than 1: 8
◦Magnitude 1 to 2: 3
◦Magnitude 2 to 3: 0
◦Magnitude more than 3: 0
◦Total: 11

I am familiar with the historical impact of the previous eruption and, if the premise to this thread is correct, there needs to be a European initiative to prepare the potential consequences of such eruption.

I am curious, what can you do on a scale that large?
Sure I'd be more than happy to have a few of my UK friends come crash out on my sofa until things are resolved but how do you quickly move an entire countries population out of the way of a poison gas cloud???

Not meaning to be snide but a lot of people are going to die waiting for BA to check their luggage ya know.

I honestly think this is just more fear-mongering.. Telling us folk that sometime in the future, a volcano may blow its trumpet and people will die!

I also hear people 'stating' that humans are useless beings, that should be culled to manageable levels... If there is too many humans alive, why do these anti-human population police wannabes not be the first to raise their hands to this culling.

Suicide maybe a sin in the eyes of god(s), and yet these self righteous people are the last to stick a sword, or etc into their hearts.

Come off it, instead of stating to everyone "Humans are a disease upon this world, and god/mother nature/my mother should smite ye all!"... ... How about suicide?...

If you do not want to kill yourself, then do not suggest a percentage of fellow human beings be "DESTROYED" to help out the earth or some entity which chooses not to show themselves. Last time I saw mother earth, was when my mother had some earth stuck on some rubber gloves.

Good thread Daddybare I too wondered what the names of the volcanoes were!

I found this link of a map of volcanoes in Iceland. The current 'eruptee' isn't named or located but if we use Hekla from your map as a grid reference and see Hekla on this link then Katla should be the one due west and down a bit perhaps?

Apologies link only my p.c. skills don't stretch that far !

I'd just like to point out the title of this thread is

Iceland's eruptions could have global consequences

Nowhere did anyone of us proclaim the end was nigh...

Further more it has been my experience that a little fear is a good thing, keeps you on your toes and prepared for the worse...

Rather than look at this, possible event, as an apocalyptic scene. I choose to look at it as the opportunity for all us to work together... So lets not go encouraging folks to go jump off bridges and buildings K? there's more than enough sadness in the world already

Well, unless we're looking at a spectacular eruption it's more likely to be floodings, local hazardous gas (how far can gas travel without thinning out so much to be non-lethal?) and evacuations of nearby residents of eruptions, correct me if I'm wrong.

I had no clue about the 1758-1783 eruptions and it's an incredible effect if everything attributed was true.

At an absolute worst case scenario there could be mass evacuations, and poisounos gas clouds threatening some nearby countries?

I took a look on the google map from the RSOE site and compared it with the CVO website of major volcanoes in Iceland and it seems the current eruptions are just west of the Katla volcano.

The winter of 1784 was also one of the longest and coldest on record in North America. New England reported a record stretch of below-zero temperatures and New Jersey reported record snow accumulation. The Mississippi River also reportedly froze in New Orleans
you refering to the so called maunders period... round 1750 ore called mini ice age... main course was the extreme low activity of the sun...

i doubt if the vulcano was the main course.... perhaps an little effect but not much....

Perhaps you could read up a bit on the consequences of large volcanic eruptions before stating that is was just the sun.

I suppose all the un-used not needed swine flu jabs we have in the UK will be renamed and forced onto us to help protect us from the nasty gasses from Iceland

Let's just wait until Al Gore explains it all to us. I am sure that it has to do with global warming and carbon emissions. Maybe they'll figure out how to pass a Volcano tax?

I am not of the mind or wallet to go buying irrational items,but today I seriously consider buying some kind of gas mask,or even better some kind of house size filter system,to protect my family in case of such an event(sadly that will never be within my budget).

Of course,any gas masks would only last as long as the filters,so they would not do alot in the case of a 5 year sustained eruption.

They may help you get out of the zone though.
Anyone reccomend a decent mask?

Some may say I am being over cautious or paranoid,but I think its better to cover as many angles as possible,just in case our thin veneer of reality comes crashing down.

Ya know I was trained to work in and have worked in poison gas environments... I have stood inside gas reactions where one little leak in my clean-suite would kill me...
so you can trust when I say...
Spending big bucks for a gas mask isn't going to do you a whole lot of good...
.FYI if you ever popped your ear drum, the gas will get in threw there...

You see you need what whats called a positive pressure SCBA air pack... you see firemen wear them, the big yellow tanks that weight like a 100 pounds and filled with class D air. even then you only have 20 minutes...we worked connected to air hoses, had us a trailer full of bigger tanks so we could work all day...

For what this kind of equipment costs, your better off buying a fast car or motorcycle, keep the tank full, and if they ever really issue a warning you preform a basic peddle to the metal maneuver

Seams some one worried in iceland the gov .
found this post from i presume a resercher
i read it from a previous link .

3. James - 5 March 2010

I have it on good authority that scientists from University of Iceland will be meeting with officials from the Civil Defence Authority (or whatever the Icelandic equivalent is called) today, specifically to discuss Eyjafjallajokull. I’m not sure if the Icelandic Meteorological Office are also involved, but it’s probably likely. Oh forgot we are in NW uk equall to isle of man

It certainly seems that the government are now beginning to take this quite seriously.

It is also important to note that since the volcano in question hasn’t erupted since 1823, no-one is really sure what to expect here. If an eruption occurs, it could be a mildly explosive but predominantly effusive eruption (similar to the Hekla eruption of 2000, for example, where an early sub-plinian phase gives way to fire-fountaining), or given the fact that it’s a central volcano with more evolved magmas, there is always the possibility that the eruption could be more explosive, involving rhyolite magmas. Of course, likely being sub-glacial, water-magma interaction would probably be in effect too. Certainly it’s somthing of an open book, and so a lot of caution will be exercised early on should an eruption occur until it is determined what exactly is going on.

Added to the distinct possibility of a jokulhlaup occuring, Eyjafjallajokull isn’t a volcano to be taken lightly, and it will be interesting to see how this pans out.

Just to add we my family and neighbours have been all having headaches,of late also some of us have been suffering nausea with slight vomiting ,with a sore throat nose. maybe a bug but who knows in this day and deception.lasting over 9 days up to now.

Bye the way they are chemtrailing like mad round here

Anyone else notice this comes on top of a recent global swarm of earthquakes?

Makes me wonder where the next??? odd event will crop up, and when???

To be honest, not sure what it means, tho I am sure lots of people will tell you this is all very normal

I myself, generally go by gut feelings on things like this, and to be honest I am more concerned that something is brewing with mother nature than the West taking any kind of action against Iran.

Someone at some point will face an horrendous global event generated by mother nature and we are just as likely to be that unlucky generation as any other.

All I knew to do was look at the time stamps and between 8:51 and 10:51 there was lot of little ones coming one after another...

But like I said, it could mean nothing... or everything???

I should also add why this holds such interest to me is living here in Albuquerque... within a 200 mile circle there are five volcanoes
