New activity at Bardarbunga/Holuhraun region

This week an earthquake swarm started at Hamarinn volcano, which is inside Bárðarbunga volcano fissure swarm. These two volcanoes seem to be connected, so there is renewed activity in this system.

Speaking to Iceland’s national broadcaster RÚV yesterday evening, Professor of Geophysics Páll Einarsson revealed that there are signs that magma is building up once again under Bárðarbunga but that more analysis will be needed.

Iceland’s next eruption could well be at Bárðarbunga, Einarsson explains. “Bárðarbunga is probably Iceland’s most powerful volcano. Indeed, it is a mountain because that’s where most eruptions occur.”
