Given the location and how this earthquake swarm is behaving it is my opinion that this is due to a magma is pushing up the crust in this area. But it remains a question of this is going to start a eruption or not. But the chances are growing for as long as this earthquake pattern holds up in Krísuvík volcano. If a eruption starts in Krísuvík volcano it is going to one of Hawaii type eruption, unless it is under water then it is going to be explosive for as long there is water getting into the crater. Last time there was a eruption in this area a 25 km long eruption fissure did form.
Putermans famous 'nothing to see here'
I do not get any earthquakes from Krísuvík volcano (expect the largest ones) on my Hekla geophone.
@M, At the top it is the rise just before the eruption that is a clear give away on what is going on. In the second on it is the oblivious spike that can be seen on it. The smaller spikes there are earthquakes, not harmonic tremors.
As regards Katla/Hekla are they not the other side of the SISZ? I have to go out but I have some info about Hekla/Hengill connections but in all honesty I don't think that Kris is going to trigger Katla or Hekla.
Seismicity has continued to Kleifarvatn today, but smaller than a quake this morning. From midnight. 14 today, had about 380 earthquakes occur meters the IMO. Sigþrúður Ármannsdóttir, Geographer of the IMO, said that the lower seismicity in the afternoon. Now it is mostly small tremors. It does not exclude the seismicity incresing again. "There have been belly since that seismicity began on Thursday night and this can continue." GPS-timers in the area show the movements of Earth's crust. Sigþrúður claims, however, does not trust himself to answer the question whether the dynamic movements are underway. She reminds us that earthquakes are common in Kleifarvatn and this is a great Geothermal area.
At the moment i am all about connections and how this could be influencing each other.
