Lower conductivity detected in glacier rivers from Mýrdalsjökull glacier (Katla volcano)

Today (12-July-2014) it was reported in the news that conductivity in rivers coming from Mýrdalsjökull glacier are showing signs of less conductivity and lower water levels. There is still an uncertainty level in effects around this area, since level of dissolved gases from the rivers remains at close to dangerous levels at current time.

Earthquake activity in Katla volcano has dropped below background levels. So there is now less activity taking place in Katla volcano as is, if this quiet is going to remain is impossible to know at current time. This low earthquake activity might change without warning, since that has happened in the past (observed in the past few years).

If anything changes I am going to post update about it soon as possible.

Other: In December-2014 I am going to move back to Iceland. Why that is can be read here (in English).

  1. Hi Jon, sorry to hijack your thread but can you comment on Vatnajökull the tremor graph has been quite active and I don’t think its down to weather. http://hraun.vedur.is/ja/oroi/grf.gif, everyones been watching Katla but I am concerned about the possibility of being sidetracked from the main event.

    1. This is in fact the background noise from the weather. Storm create pattern like this on the tremor graph. Spikes are earthquakes. I have not see any interesting activity in Grímsfjall volcano or nearby volcano for a long time now. So far it is just earthquakes and nothing else. I don’t know yet if this means anything for future activity, given the history of Grímsfjall volcano eruption history.
