Just 700 earthquakes recorded in January 2013

According to Icelandic Meteorological Office. Just 700 earthquakes where recorded in January 2013. This is the least active month in Iceland since March 2012. This lack of earthquake activity has meant that I have not had a lot to write about on this blog here.

It is impossible to know if the quiet time is going to continue. But so far of February 2013 this has been the case. But I am sure when the activity picks up in Iceland it is going to pick up in a way that it is going to be noticed.

  1. Perhaps it has been rather quiet, but I noticed that earthquake activity around Hekla has increased, especially between Hekla and Torfajökull. As far as I know, similar patterns have been observed in 1991 and 2000 in the weeks before the eruption. I have to check the paper by Soosalu and Einersson from 2003.
