Four earthquakes over four large Bárðarbunga have been added since last night. Science and media professionals got back to the eruption site this morning but otherwise the area is still closed.
Still more flowing magma into the magma corridor to the north of Vatnajökull, but comes out of it in the hole in the vent lava. This happens although at a slower rate than in recent days, says Benedict Ófeigsson geophysicist at IMO. Much has been flourishing in the eruption today.
Robust activity has been seen in the Holuhraun lava eruption this morning, says volcanologist Armann Hoskuldsson who is monitoring the event. "The highest lava fountains rise up to 130 meters from the craters," he says. The new lava field is now estimated to be 11 - 12 square kilometers in size.
"We returned to the fissure early this morning and saw considerable volcanic activity at around 7 AM," says Dr. Hoskuldsson. He and other scientists spent the night at a mountain hut nearby, after an evacuation was ordered yesterday when volcanic tremor was detected in the area, leading to fears that a subglacial eruption was imminent. "The main craters are now very active and the lava fountains from them rise up to 120 - 130 meter height," he says.
The intensity of the ongoing eruption in Holuhraun is not declining. Lava is flowing toward ENE and it has been elongated considerably since yesterday. Since this morning, a preliminary estimate of lava field extension is about 10.8 km2.
Seismic activity is still detected in the northern part of the dyke intrusion, along the eruption site and extending south below Dyngjujökull. Event rates are lower than in recent days, 180 earthquakes have been detected since midnight until noon. Four events larger than M4 have been detected in Bárðarbunga caldera. The largest one (M4.8) occurred last night at 03:09.
The low frequency tremor seen yesterday disappeared last night but started again this morning, however minor compared to yesterday. The source of the tremor is not certain however possible explanation could be magma-water interaction although this interpretation has currently not been confirmed by other observations.

do you mind if I use your screenshots?
here is one I converted the time to Iceland (UTC) and added the camera name too (more clutter)
I've made it the same size as my older ones, for continuity sake
You must be taking the screenshots off full screen view?
