Glacier quakes seen in Mýrdalsjökull glacier and Vatnajökull glacier

It seems that there have been few glacier quakes in Mýrdalsjökull glacier over the past few days. This glacier quakes are created by rain or some other movement in the glacier it self. This glacier quakes normally take place when there is heavy rain, or when the glacier is just moving because of water that is flooding below it. Sometimes glacier quakes also appear to happen around hydrothermal areas, but those might be harder to detect due to distance.

While not on the automatic earthquake list due how poor quality the glacier quakes are. It is still possible to see them on the tremor charts that Icelandic Met Office has on-line.

Same as above. Bust just stronger then on Lágu Hvolar SIL station. Copyright of this picture belongs to Icelandic Met Office.

This glacier quake activity has also been taking place in Vatnajökull glacier. But the force for the glacier earthquakes in Vatnajökull glacier seems to be weather (rain and sun), rather then hydrothermal activity.

Glacier quakes can be seen close the 28th June line on the tremor chart. But most of the activity does not get recorded due to strong wind at the same time. Copyright of this picture belongs to Icelandic Met Office.

Other then this, it is quiet in Iceland. Both in earthquakes and volcanoes.

Update: I did update the history list for eruptions in Iceland to include the last eruption in Grímsfjall volcano.
