No crazier than normal. They always look like that!

Calm down folks, this is nothing to be getting excited about.

Even Esjufjoll seems to have quietened down again.

Things sertenly have been active with buzz around that there is "something" sinister going on becouse of the recent events near Reykjarnes ridge, put as puterman has pointed out this is the 3-4th most active region in Iceland, and it´s quite common that there are quakes there.

But, i have been looking through history and checking out how quakes there affect other regions and i have found out that there was a series of quakes there 1-2 weeks before the Fimmvörðuháls started erupting. And now 3 days later after this series of quakes the country has quieted down but if you look into the data of the sil stations along the foult lines through the country you will notice a increse in tension all the way from the ridge up to vatnajökull, that started to build up now the 25th. Sil stations The tension seems to be mainly directed near the foult line running from the ridge through the hengill region but in the lower part of it and down towards godabunga, but it doesn´t seem to go up to grímsfjall but rather stays below vatnajökull towards Faguhólsmýri the station nearest to Esjufjöll.

Im thinking that it´s well worth watching to see if tension continues to build up in these same stations...

Im gonna go ahead and shoot a blank shot here. There´s going to be a huge spike in earthquake activity. Followed by a eruption in the next 2 weeks.

Im thinking my prediction is going to be a reality, with the country being live with action these last months and now all of the sudden Esjufjöll starts rumbeling followed by a spike of quakes on the ridge, then the country quiets down and now we have quakes at Torfajökull next to Hekla and quakes up north of Hofsjökull and Langjökull wich has been quiet since Hekla erupted back in 2000. The area almost hasn´t had any quakes in the last 15 years exept for after the Hengill region went berserk after Hekla went off, if the area has had any quakes it has been 1-2 small ones. But now it´s suddenly live with action with 20 quakes all ranging from 2-3 in the last couple of hours.

The next couple of days should be wery interesting to watch as im thinking there will be a increse in quakes around 2-3 richter. This seems to be a perfect excemple of how previus eruptions started out, activity in regions that haven´t had any activity in some time after a series of quakes in some other location. Followed by series of quakes above 2 on richter then some larger ones should follow up untill we get a new swarm of quakes around the area that is going to erupt.

This is atleast what im thinking after diving into the last 15 years of history we have of eruptions and quakes here in Iceland...

I have to say that Hofsjökull and Langjökull are not areas I am familiar with so I will take your word on the frequency. That does not sound good, but really one would need to know more about the quakes and we will not get that pleasure!

Esjufjoll seems to have gone quiet but I have already flagged up that this is the area the geologists have said is due to blow so let's keep our fingers crossed.

Things happening at Torfajökull have me worried when I see then as it is a known fact that this area becomes active before aseismic Hekla does it's thing, but I don't think the activity we are seeing there at present is anything to worry about yet. Hekla I have flagged as more likely than Katla for some strange reason so I hope that your prediction is wrong!

Same area starting to shake a bit more, we are reporting a 3,2 richter quake vedur.is... and hisz.rsoe.hu... is reporting a 3,7, but im guessing it will be lowerd down to a 2,8-2,9. The quake is wery deep about 18km.

Most of the other quakes are above 5km so there is defenetly something going on there..

I have found out that the area that we are speaking about is being geothermicly "farmed" farmed is so wrong but i can´t quite think of the correct word at the moment.

The local media is reporting that there was a quake of 3,7 and a 3,1 richter, but from what i can see from vedur.is...=table is that there was a 3,2. Once again there does not seem to be any consistancy in these reports.

The area that the quakes are originating are within a lake called Blöndulón and it is 57 square kilometers and the lake is 500 meters above sealevel.

This new quake activy is quite worrying as from what i can see is that we have not had this kind of activity in this area before, and from the pictures you can see that there is a straight line from the ridge up to the quakes that have been happening and then it seems to turn and go towards Askja. Most of the quakes are above 2 on richter like i said they would but i honestly thought the activity would start to increse near Hekla/Katla or near Vatnajökull.





Also there is a storm heading here tonight and should last through tomorrow so there might be a large spike in the Sil stations, so i would not worry too mutch if you see them spike.

I noticed this at the start last night, was almost twitching to post something but i got that feeling where i'd be told 'everything is normal, nothing to see here'. Since the eyja' eruption ive watched Iceland quite closely and even i can see theres an increase of activity, even if the worlds seismic monitors are a little crazy after Indonesia.

We've had 3 steady swarms in the past week, 2 at reykjanes ridge and now we're seeing one in this region tell me people is this really 'normal'.

Well the swarm of quakes in the ridge area is quite normal as Puterman pointed out this is one of the most active regions, but the swarm that is occuring now is not usual at all. This area has hardly had any quakes in the last 15 years, so yes you are correct in the idea that this is not normal ,, not normal at all. The big question is though what does this lead to. What does activity in that region mean, and what will come out of it.

The "end" of the Eyjafjallajökull Eruption: In all the hubbub about Merapi and the eruptions in Kamchatka, I almost missed that the scientists at the University of Iceland Institute of Earth Science has declared the eruption at Eyjafjallajökull "over". Ármann Höskuldsson warned that this does not mean that the volcano could resume erupting in the future, but rather that this eruptive period is done. One odd fact in the story: the total ash emitted was ~300-400 million tonnes.


Source: Eruptions!

I guess that is that then, we can all relax and stop worrying!

Never be concerned about posting something and then being told it is 'normal'. After all that is surely good news is it not?

Be concerned however when you post something and the 'older hands' say OMG that should not be happening there!

Grimsvotn Volcano, Iceland
A possible eruption has begun at Grimsvotn volcano, Iceland. A flood has started in Gigja in south-east Iceland. The disturbance occurred under the Vatnajokull glacier near Grimsvotn Volcano on Sunday afternoon. There was an increase in flow of water by 30 cm but other rivers running from the glacier are dry. The flood may take 4-5 days to reach maximum. On Sunday the volume of water in Gigja was 130 cubic metres per second, and electrolyte levels double that of normal. Grimsvotn is the most active volcano in Iceland.

Well don't be spooked! Nothing is happening yet so calm down, pour a large one and relax.

You are seasoned enough to be able to read the charts so go read them and see for yourself that nothing major is going on yet.

Edit: This post on the sensationalist thread about it confirms what I am saying:

Yeah,
No reason to be spooked and don't listen to all those fearmongers.


But something is going on there. As I posted on one of the threads we're having a tremor increase 2-4 Hz in that region. At the moment the 2-4 Hz activity is even above the 0.5-1.0 Hz one when we look at the grf graph and that is unusual. Normaly the blue line is always under the red one and since 30-10-2010 it's above.

My guess.
It's probably linked to some water melting/flow beneath the surface generating these above normal 2-4 Hz tremors. This would fit with the news we are reading since a couple of hours/days.

At the moment we don't have any "increased" earthquake activity there (only one quake mentioned on map) and the red line 0.5-1.0 Hz that could indicate harmonic tremor just looks normal on the grf graph.

I am not going to speculate with If this or If that is going to happen neither. At the moment there is no eruption and we don't see or read any signs that could indicate an eruption soon.

There is some information about Grimsvotn on this page from The Smithsonian about the melting waters and the ice dam.
