Minor earthquake activity on TFZ (Tjörnes Fracture Zone)

It is quiet in Iceland at the moment. Nothing much to report, so I’m reporting this minor earthquake activity in TFZ.

Few earthquakes have happened in TFZ for the last 48 hours, most earthquakes have been small and the largest ones have reached magnitude 2,5.

This type of quiet period is common in Iceland. Since activity happens in bursts with long quiet spells between them. Since this website mostly reports current events, rather than anything historical I don’t have a lot to write about at the moment. I’m considering writing about other global activity while it’s quiet in Iceland.


Please remember to support my work. Currently I’m so broke that I’m almost out of coins to pay with and my bank account is empty. Thanks for the support. 🙂

  1. Please write about the submarine volcano that’s been erupting in the Aleutian islands or Colima. Or maybe Kamchatka. Pick a volcano there. There’s like 2 or 3 actively erupting.

    1. Well, thought I’d try suggesting ongoing eruptions outside of Iceland that may be of interest. Ah well.

    2. I plan on writing about the earthquake activity in Italy that has been happening today (18.01.2017) tomorrow (19.01.2017). Unless something happens in Iceland. I recorded the magnitude 5,7 earthquake in Italy on my geophone in Denmark.
