What's going on on cam 1?
4.6 Earthquake in size was almost seven kilometers east-northeast of Bárðarbunga just before half past eight in the morning. Has slowed seismicity in the area and have about eighty seismometer metabolism area from midnight. Small and constant turmoil has been the last few days.
Earthquake five size was almost two miles northwest of Bárðarbunga just before three o'clock today. This is another earthquake today which is over four in size, it's half past eight o'clock in the morning was one which was 4.6, nearly seven miles east-northeast of Bárðarbunga.
"It is a question whether this lava was forced to go much further," said Thorwald Thordarson, volcanologist in Earth Science. The lava stands at 14.5 miles long. "I guess that based on this productivity, then lava be no further than 20 km, even considerably less."
According Víðir Reynisson, head of the Civil Protection are planning to go by helicopter to the eruption site to bring GPS gauges. No such in Bárðarbunga. More than 50 earthquakes have been recorded in the metabolism of the area north of Vatnajökull, between midnight and none of them was big. According to the Meteorological Office earthquakes has decreased slightly compared to the previous days. 3.7 tremor that size became Bárðarbunga about eleven o'clock last night. The turmoil has been stable since last night and soda seems stable from webcams to judge.
Researchers at the blowout lava eruption site had to leave quickly three times yesterday because of a sharp increase gasmengunar. Continuous adjusting on the wind direction due to the heat from the lava.
Promote pollution measurements based on both the eastern and north today. According Víðir Reynisson, head of civil defense with the NCIP, the winds are changing fast because of the heat from the lava. Scientists had three times yesterday to leave the eruption site in haste when the air suddenly became very toxic. Not sufficient anymore to work into the wind because he season so rapidly the direction. Several times have scientists considered to be a safe place but have eiturgufuský come up behind them. Civil Defence was worried that media professionals are in the area and not to realize the situation.
The fire rose high above the northernmost lava crater in the hole when Freyr Arnarsson cameraman flew over it today. Hraunflæmið is spreading and closing Jökulsá mountains. The main eruption is the same crack and has been active since the beginning of the cracks that opened yesterday did little itself felt today.
Seismic events from 16 August 2014 and volcanic activity - overview
In this article, updated information on the Bárðarbunga seismic events and volcanic activity is given with daily status reports from the scientist of IMO and the University of Iceland. New material is added to the top of the article. The original information is at the end of the article. Therefore, from bottom to top, this article gives an overview of events. For additional material, check also the news list on our front page.
SIMON REDFERN: We're approaching the fissure eruption near Bardarbunga.
SIMON: This is audio recorded by scientists from Cambridge, who are just about as close to that rolling wave of lava as people can get without being too daft to be scientists.
A group of earth scientists was in Iceland performing annual maintenance of its equipment, when the volcano Bardarbunga erupted. Professor Simon Redfern has now joined them and speaks to Adam Rutherford..

no need to aplogise, I just wondered if you were going to do that from now on?
Depending on ya bud, it looks like I'm cut off from the cameras.
7th September 2014 - 07:00. From Thor Thordarson.
The lava has now reached to the main channel of the glacial river Jökulsá á Fjöllum. Steaming occurs there.

"The events in Bárðarbunga can only be described as a slow caldera collapse" says a statement on the University of Icelands Institute of Earth Science according to RÚV.
A surveillance flight over Bárðarbunga this morning revealed continuing subsidence (sinking) of the 850 meter thick glacial ice which cover the Bárðarbunga caldera. This adds to the 15 meters subsidence, which was measured last friday.
A surveillance flight over the Bard Bunga volcano this morning revealed CONTINUING subsidence of the 850 meter thick glacial ice-which covers the caldera beneath. Strong seismic activity is still detected around the caldera; the last one, a 5.0 magnitudes Earthquake occurred at 14:47 GMT.
Following a surveillance flight last Friday over the Bard Bunga caldera, When measurements revealed up to 15 meter subsididence in the center of the caldera, another flight was organized this morning.
One of the largest volcanic eruption of the 19th century
Eruption of lava blowout is when a major eruption that has occurred in this country since the nineteenth century, allegedly volcano chemist. Two major earthquakes have been recorded near the eruption site today.
Earthquake five size became Bárðarbunga just before three o'clock in the day and this morning was one that measured 4.6. Earthquakes in Bárðarbunga are associated with subsidence in the caldera of the volcano down last morning when scientists flew over there. Proved peeling in Bárðarbunga have sunk by more than two and a half meters since Saturday, she had sunk to 16 meters. Björn Oddsson, geophysicist in Earth Sciences, said that the present results show that there are reasonable grounds to continue to monitor Bárðarbunga set up a GPS device. Then show this new information from Bárðarbunga the residual risk of eruption there.
It is impossible to predict whether it will continue to slide. According to the Civil Protection is considered sufficient reason to keep abreast Bárðarbunga install GPS measure there. The aim is to bring such things up in the coming days.
