Update on activity Eruption in Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland
Current events Assessment - 26 April 2010 19:15
No visual observations at eruption site; no magma flow is visible. Radar images show continuous build-up of a tephra crater/cone in the northern ice cauldron; the diameter of the crater is 200 m and the height of the crater cone is 130-170 m.
GPS observations are consistent with deflation of a magma reservoir beneath Eyjafjallajökull. No measurable geophysical changes within the Katla volcano. Earthquake activity on the north-western edge of Vatnajökull is unconnected with the ongoing eruption.
Magma flow-rate and plume height has remained at similar levels during the last few days. Lava continues to flow northward. No signs of melting or meltwater discharge towards the south. There is no indication that the eruption is about to end; however, it is an order of magnitude smaller than in the first explosive phase.
The above is based on a status report issued collectively by IMO and the Institute of Earth Sciences at 18:00 this evening.
