Still mostly quiet in Iceland

Today (10-March-2016) an magnitude 3,2 earthquake took place in Bárðarbunga volcano. The location of the earthquake swarm was in the caldera, with the location of the 3,2 magnitude earthquake being in the North-east part of the caldera.

The depth of this earthquake swarm was shallowest at 0,1 km, but most depth was 8,6 km. No other change has been observed in Bárðarbunga volcano so far. Other than this minor activity today in Bárðarbunga volcano activity remains low in Iceland. Currently there are storms passing over Iceland, that reduces the sensitivity of the SIL network.


Please remember to support my work with donations. I’m getting rather broke at this moment. This will get better with time. That I’m sure of. But that moment I’m in minor problems and any help is welcomed. Thanks for the support. 🙂
