Quiet in Iceland at the moment

For the past few days it has been quiet in Iceland when it comes to earthquakes and volcano activity. Quiet period happens, they are usually followed by a spike in activity somewhere in Iceland.

For those wanting to pass the time while it is quiet. I suggest a message in a bottle website that Rúv put on, as part of a science show for kids they had on the schedule this winter. It’s updated several times a day when the bottles send a message to a passing satellite.

    1. Quite a neat little swarm at Bardarbunga this morning! Thanks Jon, your article about how quiet it was has done the trick. Going by the forecast it looks like the weather is going to be a bit less quiet too in the coming days.

  1. There sometimes is a delay of six hours or more in the uploads from IMO, I think it happened yesterday too. Should be updated before midnight GMT hopefully.

    1. It’s true, but this time it must have been a glitch of some sort. The drumplots should have reacted.
