This is what i think, Lava is on the foot now, and that is why the water is coocking. maybe ther is a rift in the volcano wall? We wait and see.

This event was a classic lahar. The increase lava flowed under the glacier. This melt the ice and heated the water which pooled. Then it started cutting a channel down the slope. Opening that long crevasse earlier. There was a dam holding back but you could see it punching holes and venting. Then I saw a very small lahar not long before this main release of steamy hot water. I don't think there is any lava coming down the slope.

And I don't think they'll be a lateral eruption like Mt. St Helens. The volcano is subsiding. Even if it's being more vigorous at the moment. If there was a bulge like the one preceeding the 1980 eruption, then that could very likely happen. I think the most likely event is a major landslide. There seems to be lots of material almost hanging over a sheer vertical fall.

Keep watching. The whole side of the mountain may give and cascade down in a massive lahar. Today's was very modest in reality.

I think what we saw was a jokulhlaup - as was the one the other day. I've asked a few people in the industry and they say that a glacial burst (jokulhlaup) would be a better description of the Eyja activity.

Can't wait until it's light again... see what she's been up to overnight.

You are correct. The glacial run or jokulhaup, causes the lahar. The lahar is the muddy flood at the bottom along the river. The glacial burst is at the top. I think I'll refer to it as a glacial run. It's too hard to spell or remember, Jokulhaup.

I didn't realise just how much bandwidth watching the cams takes up - at least I didn't until my hubby showed me the warning email from ISP saying we're about to go over monthly allowance


Ooops... still, it's worth it!!

Just remember to tell him, your very ill and this help you to feel better!

. And this is very interesting: Katla is NOT erupting and there are NO indications that Katla is about to erupt. Information on this page is for the Eyjafjallajökull eruption. - put out on the GOD graff - which IMO appear Interesting !

Ohh it's like a peep show - tantalizing glimpses of the glacier on Poro cam from time to time!


Here's a time lapse video of yesterday's action for those who missed it

I saw that you`re using short versions for the icelandic names.
Þórólfsfelli is Poro cam, I guess.
So which one is Foda?

There`s only icelandic on that on that page
I tried to translate it to english but it didn`t work.
