What you hear from the media in Iceland is (consumer) based information, to avoid panic and hysteria, in regards to the public statement made by our president Ólafur, about the near future eruption of Katla, I’d like to applaud him by telling the world the truth.
While researching through the posts here .......I did not find the subject in which I was looking for, but rather hours of endless posts about doomsday theories. For those of you who live in Europe.........While we face genocide you face airspace cancelation and maybe -0,5 temperature dropping, and maybe a lot of ash with fluorine.
You will not read anything like I’m about to write in any kind of news media as this information is somewhat terrifying and still just a (theory) from a single individual.
i would like to clarify that even though people see 5-10 small earthquakes with the size of 0,5 to 2, that this is not a indication that it is going to erupt as these kind of earthquakes around the caldera´s are perfectly normal and happens every week.
(The volcano Esjuföll is a volcano in the central of our largest iceglacier Vatnajökull, this volcano has never erupted in our time but it was thought that it produced a huge glacier meltwater outburst in 1927, the caldera of this volcano is estimated to be 40km2 wide and therefor 4 times the size of Katla´s caldera)
Seing as the goverment has been drilling into the Hengill area to be able to use the steam that comes from it, they have been tapping into the area for quite some time now. As from what i have read steam like that is produced with lava setteling into a chamber below and therefor couses pressure and let´s off the steam. The area reaches over 100km and is only 50km away from the main capital reykjarvík.This type of system is somewhat the same as the Láki system that erupted violently in 1783 wich killed over 25% of our population and 50% of our livestock and is believed to have coused over 2 million deaths in europe. And that system is in the middle of our country, not 50km away.
Over 80,000 small earthquakes occurred at the volcano between 1994 and 1998. The largest earthquake occurred on 4th June 1998 with a magnitude 5.1 event at a previously unmapped fault 3.7 km due west of the uplift center. On 13th November 1998, a magnitude 5.0 earthquake occurred 12 km south of the June event.
Is it possible that given the delay on the most active volcano´s in iceland that the magma is forming elsewhere, like in the Hengill system wich is still refered to as active. Could this mean that there´s a eruption about to happen under this area in wich there has been about 80% more activity then in the last 3 years,(couldn´t find earthquake data going farther back then that)
I meant if the hengill area wich is next to reykjarvík would erupt in the manner láki did
And regarding the genocide statement i said , well i may have over exsagerated a bit with that one , but seing if hengill would go it would surely have huge affect to the reykjarvík area and nearby towns ,wether the winds were blowing the right direction or not, seing as about 70% of the population is around this area
I can not quite agree with you there, ....... Im pretty sure this kinda information is terrifying,, maybe not to you and me but those who do not know mutch about the subject
This was a fact i got from the icelandic media, so im sorry about that
With the list of eruptions , i was merely showing people the time frame in which they have been erupting, showing that they were overdue.
At that time , lets say an average of 26 shakes per day, i know this is wee bit higher then the truth atm, but bere with me , i will explain this in my presentation later. 26 quakes per day for 4 years, that´s still 37960, half of when it was the most active.
I will present a much better presentation which will show what i am thinking.
There have also been some interesting ramifications of the eruption. For one, Icelanders are finding uses for the copious ash produced in the eruption, such as reinforcement for concrete. The Romans used ash to help make building materials and it allows for lighter, stronger concrete.
