Some absolutely cracking video footage on this Icelandic news article of the volcanic eruption.

BBC News was reporting tonight that the Icelandic authorities were saying that activity was subsiding but it still looks as active as ever tonight and the lava field seems to have grown quite substantially today.

A little covering of snow in Iceland today as well - nice little contrast

Things are rather active again this evening - no idea if it's a coincidence but last 2 days have had very little activity during the day and then quite a lot late afternoon and in to the evening.

For a different perspective to the stream I shared previously there is also one round the other side: https://www.mbl.is/frettir/innlent/2021/03/23/beint_eldgosid_i_fagradalsfjalli/ (with sound).


On a different note Etna is currently erupting again in case you wanted a change of scene

Both the Sicilian and Icelandic volcanoes active as of this morning. It looks like the Italian one is winning in the snow stakes with serious snow in the past few days at the summits though of course where the active craters are it's just bare cinders. I guess if you could take all the snow that falls in Sicily in a winter and plonk it over Dorset in one go we'd have been buried under metres of the stuff with incipient glaciers a result.

It's undoubtedly true that at night you can see the hot areas of the lava much better than during the day and that bit looks more impressive albeit probably isn't so much but if you compare the activity just around/in the cone it certainly appears to have picked up. This morning for example is still showing quite a lot of material (for this eruption) being ejected from both cones, yesterday morning there was essentially none.

In case anyone is interested, this a short article detailing the composition, temperature and source of the lava/magma.

I have a splendid fist-sized lump of "ropy lava" I picked up in Iceland in 1972 which has since been examined and sniffed at by countless students! Its wonderful smell faded long ago, but is fresh in my memory.

I had a look back through the Etna feed as well from last night and that got quite active for a while - 5:34AM this morning is a good place to look, really nice contrast with the blue skies, snow and fountaining lava.

Webcam has supplied both temporary whiteout conditions and lava today, which was nice! Second cone is very active, main one less so although a vent has opened up lower down so a new flow is coming out from that.


Judging by the people standing near to it the depth is starting to pile up a bit - can be a bit hard to judge when no one is next to it, other than watching what was a small ridge slowly disappearing in to the cooling lava.
