Deep earthquakes in Katla volcano – renewed activity

Yesterday (27-November-2015) new earthquake activity took place in Katla volcano. This activity, in part of the Katla volcano caldera is a repeated pattern, this means that this has happened before. Last activity of this type took place in September (from what I remember). This activity suggests that a magma is building up at the east part of the caldera at the depth of 20 – 28 km (in my view). Currently there is no risk of eruption.

It is difficult to know if there is going to be more activity in Katla volcano. It might happen and it might not. All that can be done is to wait and see.

Changes in Amazon advertisements

Due to agreement changes regarding Amazon advertisement (or associates it’s called in some markets) I have to close down my accounts for Italy and Spain right now. That is due to the fact that I don’t have any income from those accounts. I’ve had little income (one sale) on Amazon France, but if it’s usage does not increase soon I’m also going to close it down soon. The reason for this is that Amazon now takes a “maintenance fee” from accounts that don’t have any income. This is new and I’m not going to support Amazon in this way if I can avoid it. So any Amazon account for advertisements that doesn’t provide income for a long period of time is going to get closed down (this are periods of at least 12 months).


Please remember to support my work with donations or by using Amazon advertisements to buy stuff. Thanks for the support.

The move back to Denmark

I’m going to move back to Denmark in March of 2016 (maybe earlier) if everything has been shorted out. I’m not sure if that is going to happen, currently I’m dealing with a large issue with the Danish Tax and I can’t move to Denmark until that has been resolved.

  1. Hi, so if I want to buy aomething from amazon germany I just click on the ad here and sign in as usual and then you will get some income from that?

    1. Yes, that should work. The cookie is only valid for 24 hours and this does not work with anything you have put in “buy later” part of the shopping basket.

  2. Hi Jon, so if I am going to purchase your books through Amazon here in Canada is there any issues with you getting paid?
    Also looking at the last 24 hours of quakes it looks as if the plates are making a shift. Does that have any relation to the activity with regards to either Katla or Bardarbunga, and also is there any information relating to activity with those two and plate shifts?
    For instance is there any information that a plate shift cause eruptions or can an eruption cause a plate shift?

    1. There are no issues with getting paid from either U.S or Canada. I get a check once I have reached the payment minimum that I have set. Do to how few visits I get from Canada on my websites I have not added many banners from Amazon CA. The banner you need to click on can be found on the site “Amazon webstore” at the top of this article.

      1. It would be nice if you could write a quick post about good books to introduce people to geology and volcanoes.

        Together with some links to Amazon (UK, Kindle editions preferred ☺ )

  3. Looks like American & European plate shifting is heating up this evening under Iceland. Earthquakes in a few of Iceland’s significant volcanic systems as a result…

    Watching with interest.

      I took in consideration that it might also be wind, but shouldn’t that show on the nearby stations as well?
