  6. Happy holidays 🙂

    This site has been great. Hopefully those volcanoes will act slow enough to avoid major havoc.

  9. Hope Candle beggar buys some fireworks for new years eve (seeing as he needed to be rescued) 🙂

  10. Happy Christmas Jon, and everyone here. It has been an eventful year, and thanks to you all for all the shared moments.

    1. Seems they want to eventually build a power plant, wonder if an aluminium smelting plant will end being nearby?

      1. I wonder what an ‘acceptable’ price was for the energy? We have plans going on for a 3rd nuclear power plant in Somerset!

      1. There was a nice display of Nacreous clouds this morning all over North Iceland.

        Some pictures from Siglufjordur

        It is unusually cold in the stratosphere .
        Since the start of winter 2010, to March 2011, there has been a 40 percent loss in the ozone layer over the Arctic

      2. Some information about the ozone layer.

        I have been wondering if this has to do with increased volcanic activity in Iceland.
        I think volcanoes emit various types of gasses for a while before, during and after eruptions.
        It would not surprise me if the cold snap of 1918 was a part of the build up to a eruption later that year.
        This fast erosion of the ozone lair can not be man made, as there is a decrease in the output of ozone destructive material, the size and speed of the erosion would suggest some other factor.

      3. I’ve seen nacreous clouds a few times on my winter trips to Northern Sweden, once you have seen them you never forget it!

  11. @Jon:

    Hengill seems to have a few not so shallow quakes and without human activities. Is this anything worth looking at?

    1. I wouldn’t suppose that this is without human influence. I think these are the places of boreholes for (the northeastern ones) the p0wer station of Nesjavellir resp. (the southwestern ones) Hellisheidi power station.

    2. Could be.

      If I remember correctly the EQs from fracking should be in the region of the 2km depth. So most of today’s EQs, if I am correct, are from natural events.
