Thx for the pictures. Personally I can't see anything that shows anything in the area you have highlighted. Besides that, my understanding is that that area is not Katla. The volcano is the farthest away high ground which forms the skyline.

Wow, thank you for posting that, the circled one is exactly what I was referring to earlier. Does that look different to you?

I think I might know what view this camera is. There is a small map on the Katla cam page that shows a red dot, which is where I believe the cam is. So according to that, it on the southeast flank looking northeast at Katla, and Eyja is on the far left. Just IMO.
Thanks again for that screen shot, I still haven't figured out how to do that on this site,
to me!!

So am I seeing things? Again, as I was watching, I swear I can see swirling wisps of black smoke going across the screen. It seems to be originating from the left side (almost exactly where the possible vent was spotted earlier) and goes across to the right, towards the camere.

If you look at pic I just posted earlier, you can see it is smaller than this one I am posting now.

Maybe a trick of lighting, I don't know.

So this is the last of the wild speculation from me for now
, unless something big happens. Little knowledge and big ideas can lead to some big leaps in judgement. I don't want to be known as the moron that thought I was looking at a volcano when actually it's an old gargabe dump or something.
SO..we now have some comparison pics at least!

Its really difficult to tell with direct sunlight like that, it could be a dirty camera lens or just a dazzling effect on the camera, until the sun goes down behind the mountain its difficult to see anything, its just too bright.

Yup Eyja is on the far Left well out of view and and Katla just left of center on the Webcam.

It took me about 5 mins to work that out plus create a map of where the Cameras are roughly pointing at, and I don't even live in Iceland nor have I seen Iceland.

I am sick of people jumping the gun and making out as though Katla is going to blow every dam second, it's like every day "Katla has a vent, Katla has some clouds near it"



Huge Scale evacuation, Social Networking won't miss that....

Big brown arrow is the rough direction of the latest Ash Cloud.

RIGHT!!! Back to Eyja...............

Best add this note: The cameras on the map show the rough direction of where they are looking.... Not Exact.

WOW somebody who finally saw the map with the Red Dot on, I was going to post a screen-shot just make sure I wasn't going mad. I though I was the only one who could see it, people keep asking questions and the answers are right there in front of them "they always have been"

Anyway some clouds outside, think there is a Volcano just erupted in the UK.... It has to be what else can clouds mean, run for the hills.

Sorry for the Sarcasm, but I just read through 30 pages of "Katla is going to blow" and it isn't.

Aside from the "katla just errupted' threads that are popping up, I don't recall anyone here recently yelling that Katla is errupting. Noting possible vents or deformation is a far cry from saying it is errupting. These could very well be precursers TOO an erruption, or maybe not. For me, personally, it is about observe and report, with an open mind....not to cry wolf.

I don't think that many of us are so dumb as to not be able to see where the red dot is. I myself have looked at the map you posted several times. The question is not so much WHERE the camera IS, but in which DIRECTION it is currently POINTING. It has been moved in the past, leading to even more confusion. Thankyou for the graphic does help.

In all honestly the maps are useless without knowing what size lens is on the webcam // camera, if its a wide angled lens then it may well get both volcanoes in the same pic.

Exactly, don't you think if the camera was pointing at Eyja there would be a huge Ash cloud coming from the dam thing. Because at the moment on the Mila cams, ash is clearly coming from Eyja and no ash on the Katla cam... Other than the slight mist in the air. Common sense says the Katla cam is pointing at Katla, the maps on both Mila and RUV clearly show where the cams are. You don't need a geography lesson to work out where it's pointing, just look at the picture and take note of the landscape rather than just a few bloody clouds.

All people have done is spam the topic with pictures of clouds, fog, and probably bloody cigarette smoke from the Camera maintenance guy... from a Volcano that has nothing to do with this topic.

I have no problem with the odd mention of Katla, but the whole topic has become about Katla... as she sits there in silence....I sit here in confusion.


You have to laugh...

Well everyone is entitled to their opinion and I understand your gripe.

I obviously do not see it as spam. I consider these volcanos to be connected and with all the talk of this recent EQ swarm, I was trying to provide some of the members with screen shots of what they were talking about.

As I said, I am not trying to claim anything with them. Whatever.

Back to the EQ's mount, you gotta wonder what the next night/day will bring. She is putting on quite a show!! It looks like the tremor plots might be on the upward curve again too.

Anyone have the latest quake count?

Hey there everyone
I have the new official report again. So give you something to read. Look close, maybe you see the change's!!!

Eruption in Eyjafjallajökull - Status Report: 15:00 GMT, 10 May 2010
Icelandic Meteorological Office and Institute of Earth Sciences, University of Iceland

Compiled by: Steinunn S. Jakobsdóttir, Gunnar Sigurðsson, Björn Oddsson, Sigrún Hreinsdóttir.

Based on: IMO seismic monitoring; IES-IMO GPS monitoring; IMO hydrological data; IMO weather radar measurements, MODIS satellite images.

Eruption plume:
Height (a.s.l.): ~5 km / 17,000 ft but sometimes shoots up to 6 km / 20,000 ft.
Heading: Southeast. Low level winds are variable.
Colour: Grey / light gray.
Tephra fallout: Ashfall reported at Drangshlíð and Skarðshlíð almost continuously for the last 24 hours. The ash is rather coarse, estimated by the farmers to be ~2-3 mm.
Lightning: No lightning has been detected on instruments over the eruption site for the last week.
Noises: No reports.

Meltwater: Low water discharge at Gígjökull. Daily fluctuations in discharge and temparature are dominating the water flow at Markarfljótsbrú. No flash floods have been detected.

Conditions at eruption site: There was no flight today, but observations from web cameras show similar activity to yesterday. The crater is getting higher. Lava flow is low and not visible on cameras. In the afternoon there was a slight increase in explosive activity, which resulted in a higher plume for a while.

Seismic tremor: Has been similar for the past 3 days, and similar amplitude on all frequency bands.

Earthquakes: A sequence of earthquakes started around 11:00h this morning. Some 40 earthquakes were located, mostly at depths of 18 – 20 km and magnitude range Ml 1 – Ml 2. As the background tremor is much lower now than last week, much smaller earthquakes are observed, partly counting for the number of earthquakes detected this morning.

GPS deformation: Horizontal displacement towards the center of Eyjafjallajökull volcano and subsidence. Some irregular movements are seen in the height of the station closest to the volcano.

Overall assessment: The earthquake sequence this morning indicates that magma is still flowing in from the mantle. Presently there are no indications that the eruption is about to end.

I found this to.
Katla is NOT erupting and there are NO indications that Katla is about to erupt. Information on this page is for the Eyjafjallajökull eruption.

So the Katla freaks here can go to bed as useal!

Have you seen the cams for Eyja? Such a thing of beauty is mother nature

The sky is so clear now, you can really see it in all its glory. I did take a screen shot but it came out with dots on it!!

Yuuuup you are correct, you completely have the right to share your opinion and I am willing to sit and read it and laugh because....

I never mentioned any names.

I don't think the posts are spam as in rubbish, I just think they're in the wrong place, We have a Katla Topic and defiantly some topics on Clouds.

Notice the Sarcasm in my post.....

Anyway I'm off over to the Thermal Camera to smoke a far cigar in front of it, hehe the whole world will think Eyja has erupted again.... ATS NEWSFLASH........... OMFG OMFG I Can't type because w w wwwww weeeeee are DOOOOOOOOMED.

My point was with Social Networking these days, you will defiantly know when Katla is going to go bang. but if people think clouds are Volcanoes erupting that experience will happen over, and over, and over again.

guys calm the hell down, nobody in this thread said katla was erupting at ANY point, it hasn't been mentioned in this thread, this thread has been here primarily to keep track of when eyja is not erupting and when it is erupting, earthquakes and that. Damn dude, of course everyones keeping a close eye on katla, what do you expect? explosions are going of in it's face. lol

It's been suggested with clouds and the like yeah, but someone got to keep an eye on it right? When you say, you'll basicly be told when katla is erupting, the idea is were keeping an eye on it, soooo, we know first also?

It's not exactly unreasonable cause to keep an eye on it or talk to one another about the possibility of it erupting? Not considering it's track record with it's little sister.

You think the people of Iceland are going to rely on being alerted by ATS Members, lol they would be evacuating the country every time somebody from another country saw a cloud on the Webcam.

I think they have there own pre warning system of a Katla eruption, everything is in place should anything happen... they are more than prepared and know more about volcanoes, well enough to spot the different in clouds and eruptions... unless the Icelandic guy on the news was talking crap.

Lighten up see the sarcasm in my post, I actually find it rather funny. Watching paranoid people makes me want to do a Katla Dance on the webcam
should trigger a huge scale evacuation.

Looks like things are kicking off again, earthquakes have increased and we have some pretty awesome explosions going on, also there is a weird dot (no joke) moving around near the crater on both cams, but this cam shows it best:

Check it out! helicopter??!?!

Seriously, I'm not saying its a UFO, but what exactly is it???
