"Maybe..."

I thought I was in very booring confrence sitting here, but looking that foggy picture and a smal black point in middle of of that grey picture... That we can say its boring!

If we have info from earhquakes - a link from those and explanation why its not normal is needed.

Today there have been earthquakes centered over the volcano the night of the full moon is possibly an explanation for the increase in activity. I expect that May 3rd will be the day where Katla lets it self lose.

I found a couple more links on the subject. It seems Katla is 5 times bigger than Eyja-etc.... I keep seeing that the recent volcano activity is normal, and that the fact that they are getting more coverage these days is why we keep hearing about them. Can anyone post a chart or something showing historic volcano activity frequency? I can't find anything that illustrates a comparison. Peace

The mainstream media has been covering natural disasters regularly since the early 1990s. That exposure doubled after 9/11, and the 24 hour news networks became popular with the ticker at the bottom.

Have you ever heard of so many earthquakes/volcanoes going off in such a short span of time? No. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a disinfo agent, trying to keep you from wondering about the earth. They want you to keep consuming and buying, and not ask questions. That's why they will post "charts" and "data" that are skewed in the first place to leave out specifics about conditions, and other events around the world. There is volcano activity WORLDWIDE. There is earthquake activity WORLDWIDE. And it's all happened within the span of 4 months. That's not normal. It's normal that they are results of each other, but the amount of disasters is increasing exponentially. We are on the verge of something. The only question you should have is, "What is this something?"

The magma chamber is considered to be five times bigger(the numbers sure are not exact, only easier to use for the people then 4,5632 for example). That gives you a better perspective on the explosive eruption Katla is capable of.

indeed, also on top of the crater is a thick glacier. when magma (lava) get's in contact with ice, steam builds up quickly resulting in a masive blast beneath the glacier.

I can promise you, if Katla does have a full scale eruption, let no one tell you otherwise, it will be a huge world event which probably would effect the Whole Northern Hemisphere, I heard several weeks ago from colleagues that they were hoping and some praying that it wont come to that, what happened two weeks ago will seem like nothing compared to what would happen.

Those who think I may be trolling, go through my posts back to when Yellowstone was issued with an unauthorised alert, I don't do that at all, in fact I had nothing but condemnation for the Geologist who issued the alert off his own back, I would say if you live anywhere near Katla and activity does increase, it's time to go, but you will get word from whoever is in charge.

Katla is the real Caldera in Iceland, it has erupted in the past, thankfully it receded, the biggest problem is the Glacier, all that water will go somewhere, I have friends who are terrified of this Volcano and wont go near it because of unpredictable flows of Glacial run off.

Lets hope it backs off, it is overdue last time a large eruption occurred was around 1920 if I remember right, anyhow this is certainly on a different scale from the current eruption, and all it needs is a lot of water running into vents to give it some steam, pardon the pun.

The best hope would be a gradual eruption allowing the Glacier to run off more slowly, a major eruption will have major consequences.

Lets hope it wakes up slowly.

Some important information regarding Katla:


In the past 1,000 years, all three known eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull have triggered subsequent Katla eruptions.[13]



The volcano normally erupts every 40–80 years. At the peak of an eruption in 1755 the flood discharge has been estimated at 200,000–400,000 m³/s (7.1-14.1 million cu ft/sec); for comparison, the combined average discharge of the Amazon, Mississippi, Nile, and Yangtze rivers is about 266,000 m³/s (9.4 million cu ft/sec).


Source:en.wikipedia.org...


La Femina said that Katla historically erupts in the VEI 3 to 4 range.


Source: www.accuweather.com...

Just for comparison, when Mt. St. Helens erupted, it registered as a VEI 5. The scale for those that don't know runs from 0 - 8.

From what I've read, it seems that the most devastating effects will be from flooding.

I'm not sure though if I lived around that area I would take any chances. Stay safe and let's hope that if it does erupt, it's only minor like the one in the '90s.

that will say,, that if Katla goes full erupting it will be an VEI 7 event !!!
compare it with Tambora and Krakatau....
watch this devil woman close......:-(

Its been getting ready to blow for a while and will most likely keep getting ready for a while still so don't hold your breath for it just yet.

This page has a number of different charts related to Katla including some historic data

Katla

I can't tell if activity is growing yet.

Please explain why the 'night of a full moon' has anything to do with it as the moon is always full???
