That seems to be directly underneath the "Blue Lagoon". Would be a big blow to the Icelandic tourist trade if there was an eruption there that caused any damage.

Very close indeed. Should lava erupt then depending on direction and quantity it could be problematic. The source for the blue lagoon is man made but i don't know irs its location.

Quite a jump in activity in Iceland with multiple quakes approaching over M4 in the inflation zone. No volcanic tremors as of yet but i wonder how long can this uplift last before something gives in the crust.

Yes, it will be interesting to see how this develops. As well as the earthquake activity the last few days have seen over 45mm of ground inflation.

Study on Krakatoa's 2018 eruption links rate of lightning flashes to height of plume and hence the measures needed to re-route planes

which also has embedded link to aftermath of this year's Taal eruption

An interesting update with regards to the ongoing swarms & uplift on the peninsula in Iceland.

Would be the worst possible moment for a natural disaster. An earthquake in a lockdowned city would spread the virus everywhere

For anyone old enough to be remember, or just more generally for information, it is 40 years to the day since the eruption of Mount St Helens.

I do Michael, but I'm shocked to learn it was 40 years ago.......a massive plume rising thousands of feet into the sky.
