Dose any one know of any live video webcams of Baroarbunga? Not the ones that you have to refresh to get a new picture, but actual video. You'd think with all the eyes that are on it there would be one some where on the net. It would be really cool to see the eruption live
Over the last six hours, seismic activity has been intense in the Bardarbunga region. The dyke intrusion in Dyngjujokull outlet glacier has propagated about 5 km. to the north. Increased tremor is thought to be associated with the propagation of the dyke.
The northern end of the dyke intrusion is now thought to be 2 - 4 km from the edge of the Dyngjujokull, in an area where the glacier is 2 - 400 meter thick, says Kristin Jonsdottir, geophysicist at the Icelandic Met Office. The rate of earthquakes has increased such that they are happening so quickly that it is difficult for the seismologist to discern individual events.
A small lava-eruption has been detected under the Dyngjujökull glacier. Dyngjujökull is a part Vatnajökull, not far from Bárðarbunga.
The Icelandic Coast Guard airplane TF-SIF is flying over the area with representatives from the Civil Protection and experts from the Icelandic Met Offic and the Institute of Earth Sciences. Data from the equipment on board is expected later today.
Data from radars and webcameras are being received, showing no signs of changes at the surface.
The estimate is that 150-400 meters of ice is above the area.
The aviation color code for the Bárðarbunga volcano has been changed from orange to red.
