More on Tonga....
"Scientists have described a massive "magma hammer" they say slammed the underside of the Tonga volcano which erupted so spectacularly in January."

A series of pretty significant pyroclastic flows at mount Merapi in Indonesia today. Some of the footage I've come across is pretty epic

By any measure, this was a powerful eruption. Seems to have a Mt saint Helens quality about it

Research on the Tonga eruption last year.... Grauniad.
"Scientists have used eye and earwitnesses accounts, along with data from tide gauges, satellites, evidence of broken windows and other sources, to calculate that the eruption of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano, which occurred on 15 January 2022 and was felt around the world, likely involved five blasts. The last of them released energy equivalent to about 15 megatonnes of TNT."

Katla has been grumbling a fair bit lately with the latest swarm overnight having close to 100 earthquakes. Probably nothing will happen but after another earlier swarm this week the Iceland Met did say quakes were above normal.

Last night 8 quakes above M3 with the largest being M4.4.

Not much has come of the katla unrest but looking likely another eruption is imminent on the Reykjavik peninsula.

Yes the IMO has stated there is the increased likelihood of an eruption. It will be interesting to see if and where it occurs.

The bulk of the current activity appears to be in a similar location to the last eruption: https://en.vedur.is/earthquakes-and-volcanism/earthquakes/reykjanespeninsula/#view=map

I think given it had erupted twice in this area over the couple of years the likelihood is quite high. Any eruption will probably be small like the previous events, but none the less great for Icelandic tourism.

The 'magma intrusion', from the bits and pieces I have picked up anyway, is supposedly on par with the pre-2021 eruption in terms of volume, which is no guarantee that an similar sized eruption will be the result, but interesting times for sure. It seems something of a 'cycle' is going on.

MBL is have a new cam angle up. Facing north towards to most likely region where any potential eruption may occur in the coming days/weeks.
