Earthquake activity in Bárðarbunga volcano (Week 13)

Before I start. I want to remind people on this article here that I wrote about my move to Denmark.

Today (3-April-2016) magnitude 3,4 earthquake took place in Bárðarbunga volcano. It was followed by few minor aftershocks. Pre-earthquake with the magnitude of 3,0 also took place before the main event.

This earthquake took place not far from the dyke that created the eruption in Holuhraun. At the moment no other activity appears to be taking place in Bárðarbunga volcano.

    1. I don’t know yet if this latest short story is going to be turned into a full book. Sometimes short stories work when they are short, but not when they are turned into a full book.

    1. This one was in the northern part of the caldera. Close to the area that was most active during the eruption in Holuhaun from August-2014 to Februar-2015.

      1. now a minor swarm in the same region, the strongest quake at magnitude 3.6 (5 km depth). Tectonic or magmatic?
