“Is Iceland About to experience its biggest volcanic eruption yet?” asks the Independent.
“This earthquake activity suggests that pressure is increasing fast inside the volcano.” – Jón Frimann
Sensors picked up a 3.8 magnitude earthquake earlier today.
And we wonder what is heating the oceans?
Emissions of sulfur dioxide from the volcanic eruption at Bárðarbunga amounted to nearly 12 million tons.
The largest quake to have hit the famous volcano since it stopped erupting in February last year.
Over the past few months, seismic activity at Bárðarbunga Volcano (in Central Iceland) has been increasing, mainly under the volcano’s large, ice-covered caldera.
Fresh earthquake swarms over last the three days, along with fresh hydrothermal activity.
“Geologists are currently investigating signs that magma is building up again under Bárðarbunga,” says Iceland website.
