Update on the earthquake swarm on Reykjanes peninsula

I am sorry for this late update.

The earthquake swarm east of Fagradalsfjalla mountain increased again yesterday (16-December-2019). According to a notice on the Icelandic Met Office over 1200 earthquakes have been recorded in this earthquake swarm. Total of 10 earthquakes had a magnitude of Mw3,0 or larger. The largest earthquake had a magnitude of Mw3,7.

This earthquake swarm again seems to be over but it might start again without warning. This earthquake swarm remains tectonic in nature.


Please remember to support my work. I am really broke this month and I don’t think I am seeing any improvement in this until February 2020. Thanks for the support. 🙂
