Interesting Link RE: Where the water is going--- Lake Grímsvötn
“As surrounding ice melts, Lake Grímsvötn gradually enlarges over a few years. Ultimately it melts through an ice dam at a low point in the
confining landform and drains into a subglacial tunnel. The water usually flows southwards beneath the 8.6-km (5.4 mile)-wide Skeidarár Glacier,
discharging at its margin some 50 km (30 miles) away as a mega-flood. The cycle starts again as the lake begins to refill.”
“Icelandic history records about 60 such cataclysms since the Vikings arrived in the ninth century. However, scientists were skeptical of the
previous awesome descriptions of fantastic floods. Now that this mega-flood has been observed, many times larger than previously measured, it is
considered that these stories are probably true.17
At 55,000 cubic meters (two million cubic feet) per second, Iceland’s deluge was of apocalyptic proportions. It destroyed reinforced-concrete
bridges, swept along 1000-tonne blocks of ice, eroded 3-km-wide canyons and dumped 9 meters of sediment over 500 square km. Mercifully, it lasted only
Here is another link (can’t translate anyone from Iceland help) vmkerfi.vedur.is...
It shows a map which I put to satellite and then focused on the Gígja_800 station.
I put it to graph and it shows an increase in something temp maybe??
