Kristín Jónsdóttir, natural hazard program director at the Icelandic Met Office, states scientists are puzzled by the series of tremors in Katla volcano in the past 24 hours.
A 3.8 magnitude earthquake was picked up by sensors 5.7 km (35 miles) northeast of Bárðarbunga volcano in Vatnajökull glacier in the northern highlands at approximately 1:30 pm today. Bárðarbunga caused the 2014-2015 Holuhraun eruption.
The earthquake swarm which began in the Katla caldera under Mýrdalsjökull glacier in South Iceland the night before yesterday has died down for now, according to seismologist Martin Hensch at the Icelandic Met Office.
The Icelandic Met Office picked up continued seismic activity in Katla volcano yesterday. At 3:12 pm a tremor of magnitude 3.3 occurred. Around 2 am the previous night, earthquakes of magnitude 4.5 and 4.6 hit the volcano—the largest to be recorded there since 1977.
Two earthquakes of magnitude 4.6 and 4.5 hit Katla volcano in Mýrdalsjökull glacier last night, followed by a series of aftershocks. These are the largest quakes to hit Katla since 1977, when a 5.1 earthquake was measured there.
An earthquake of magnitude 4.0 hit the northern end of Bárðarbunga between 4 and 5 am yesterday morning. The volcano, which lies under the massive Vatnajökull glacier, caused the 2014-2015 Holuhraun eruption in the northeastern highlands of Iceland.
The water level of glacial river Múlakvísl has risen in line with increased seismic activity in volcano Katla, which lies under Mýrdalsjökull icecap in South Iceland. Scientists are monitoring developments in the volcano closely.
The Civil Protection Scientific Advisory Board met today to review new data on Bárðarbunga volcano and sent out a press release regarding the meeting.
An earthquake of magnitude 3.4 registered 6 km east-south-east of Bárðarbunga volcano at 5:37 pm yesterday.
There was a major earthquake on the northern edge of the Bárðarbunga volcanic craters at around midnight last night.
There were two earthquakes on the northern side of the Bárðarbunga caldera just before 10 am yesterday morning.
An earthquake of a magnitude 3.6 occurred at 4:01 am this morning in the Öxarfjörður region, Northeast Iceland.
Today marks the 40th anniversary of a major earthquake that hit Kópasker, Northeast Iceland in 1976.
Increased seismic activity in and around Bárðarbunga volcano in the past two weeks will be discussed today at a meeting of scientists from the Department of Civil Protection in Iceland.
A series of tremors is being registered in Ölfus, five kilometers northwest of Eyrarbakki, South Iceland, this afternoon.
The swarm of earthquakes under the infamous Katla volcano, which had been worrying scientists this week, appears to have all but stopped.
A shallow earthquake, measuring 3.3 on the Richter scale, hit the southeast part of the Katla crater last night.
The earthquake swarm which began off Reykjanes peninsula in Southwest Iceland on Tuesday evening appears to be dying down; seismicity dropped last night and this morning. Due to heightened activity in volcano Eldey off shore, the level for air traffic was raised to code yellow as a precautionary...
