Earthquake activity in Tindfjallajökull volcano

I don’t write many articles about Tindfjallajökull volcano. This is because as a volcano Tindfjallajökull volcano has spent its last ~12.000 years being quiet.

The earthquake activity in Tindfjallajökull volcano (yellow/red dot). Copyright of this image belongs to Icelandic Met Office.

All of the earthquakes that took place were small in magnitude and it doesn’t seems that any of them got larger then magnitude 0,3. This earthquake activity also seems to intrude a little into Hekla volcano fissure swarm system (it doesn’t mean or do anything). It is unclear why this earthquake activity is happening.


Please remember to support my work with donations. Because if extra work that I am doing I’ll post fewer articles this summer (While I am living in Iceland, details on this later). If anything major happens I’ll post updates soon as possible (work is 08:00 – 16:00). Thanks for the support. 🙂
