So says Jón Frímann in his volcano update of 22 December 2014.
The lava field in Holuhraun is now larger then 80 km² (30.9 sq miles) in size, says Frimann, although earthquake activity remains the same.
Some sensors remain offline due the weather and heavy snow in the area.
There are no signs about the eruption ending any time soon. The eruption could go on for years, at least many months in it’s current phase.
Meanwhile, the latest news reports suggest that dyke intrusion is taking place in Tungafellsjökull volcano.
