Just had a peek on RSOE and found this:


Geophysicist Helgi Björnsson said a magma intrusion caused the glacial flood from Köldukvíslarjökull, a part of Vatnajökull in southeast Iceland, on Tuesday night. It is possible that a minor eruption occurred underneath the icecap. The Köldukvíslarjökull flood originated in a previously unknown high-temperature geothermal area in the western part of Vatnajökull. Björnsson explained that the magma intrusion occurred near the bottom of the glacier, possibly extending into the ice, and thus furthering glacial melt. He reasoned that it is possible that a minor sub-glacial volcanic eruption occurred, even though it didn’t penetrate the icecap, which is 300 meters thick in this area. Björnsson added it is fairly likely that further seismic activity will occur in the area in the near future—the glacial flood was preceded by tremors—and therefore it should be monitored closely.
Continued here....

So they are saying in the link provided that there has clearly been an increase in volcanic eruptions in Iceland since the mid-20th century.
Extremely interesting times we live in!

Giant Undersea Volcanoes Found Off Antarctica.Mount Fuji-size peaks unexpected, scientists say.All told a dozen previously unknown peaks were discovered beneath the waves—some up to 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) tall, according to the British Antarctic
National Geographic

Amazing to still be locating new ones, then again, the ocean is still the least explored area on earth.

Too bad they couldn't be more specific as the whereabouts, that NatGeo digital image looks pretty much just like Google Earths version of whats there, perhaps a bit more detailed though.

Last night there was an earthquake swarm in the katla caldera with a m3.8
The thread is closed so i will post it here.




The m3.8 was downgraded to a m2.9, and later on a m2.6, now it is scaled back up to a m3.8

And back to a 2.6


They are playing with it.

Check out webcam-svo2.pr.kyoto-u.ac.jp...

Its the first lava I`ve seen since I started watching a week ago!


ETA....Murphy`s Law in action.... I should have taken a screen shot. I`ll know better next time!

It was there before all those nasty clouds rolled in!

I didn`t expect to see it (especially after Etna last night), or I`d have been quicker and taken a screenshot. I guess I live and learn.

I think its gonna be along nite (watching it to do it again)

LOL!!! Me too!

It wasn`t shooting lava up like Etna did, it was more like a pot of spaghetti sauce boiling over on the stove,if that makes any sense.

sauce boiling over, yep makes sense.

Have you noticed that the cauldera is a lot bigger then it was say, a month ago?

I love Sakurajima!

I noticed that, but since i`m so new to this I thought maybe I just wasn`t familiar enough with it to know what I was seeing!

My interest in all things geological has really ramped up since feeling my first earthquakes this year.

I`m learning so much from you all.... amazing planet we live on!

Kizimen spews lava and ash



July 22, 2011 – KAMCHATKA – Hot lava has flown down the eastern slope of a volcano called Kizimen, on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Far East of Russia. The ash plume stretches for 15 kilometers and is a threat to aviation, according to the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology of the Far East District. Kizimen is one of 29 active volcanoes in Kamchatka and it became active in July of last year after 80 years of “silence.” –Voice of Russia

I came across a rather handy earthquake signature profile on U.S.G.S. I think relevant for folks to review to understand seismic graph data:
