A major earthquake measuring M4.2 on the Richter scale was registered 3.5 km (1.9 miles) under northern edge of the Bardarbunga volcanic craters at 00:10 UTC on April 8, 2016. This is the strongest quake to hit the volcano since it stopped erupting in February 2015….
The volcanic eruption in Holuhraun which began on August 31, 2014 came to an end on Friday, February 27, 2015, the Scientific Advisory Board of the Icelandic Civil Protection said on February 28 and confirmed today. The Aviation Color Code for Bardarbunga was downgraded
Comprehensive cross-section measurements from air from December 30, 2014 and January 21, 2015 show that the lava field has thickened substantially during these three weeks and that the volume of the lava field is now little less than 1.4 km³. The flow of magma, dur
Seismic activity in Bardarbunga is slowly decreasing but it still continues to be strong. The lava field has recently thickened substantially and activity on the surface has decreased.Meanwhile, very high values of sulfur dioxide (SO2), about 84000 µg/m3, were
Iceland's subglacial stratovolcano Bardarbunga, located in NW Vatnajökull ice cap, erupted on August 29, 2014 after a sharp increase in seismic activity which started at 03:00 UTC on August 16, 2014.Today, almost 5 months since the eruption started, seismic ac
Large quantities of gases are emitted to the atmosphere associated with the Holuhraun eruption, Icelandic Met Office (IMO) reported on Thursday, November 13, 2014. Among the gases are SO2 that can convert to sulfuric acid causing acid rain.Rainwater samples have been co
Seismic activity at Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano is still high, the eruption at Holuhraun continues and the Aviation Colour Code for the volcano remains at ‘Orange’. The European Geosciences Union (EGU) warned this morning that strong jet stream could t
Earth has split open between the Bardarbunga and Askja volcanoes in Iceland and spewed lava and hot gas. According to the University of Iceland, as of September 9, 2014, the new lava flow was 16 kilometers (10 miles) long and covered about 20 square kilometers (8
