New Factsheet | March 10, 2015

From the factsheet:

Conclusion of the meeting:
- The meeting discussed the hazards that may still be relevant following the events in Bárðarbunga and Holuhraun.
- Number of equipment’s must be installed in the area and the monitoring of the Icelandic Met Office must be
secured before the area is opened for the public.
- Countermeasures to reduce risk in the area will be taken and further opening of the area will then be decided.
- Seismic activity in Bárðarbunga continues to diminish. Since last Tuesday about 80 earthquakes were detected in the caldera. The strongest one was M2.5. Continuous seismic activity was detected in the dyke, with about 200 earthquakes being detected, all smaller than M2.0. Few deep earthquakes were detected southeast of Bárðarbunga, where the dyke turned to northeast.
- Earthquakes were detected daily around Herðubreið and Herðubreiðartögl. Yesterday a series of about 20 earthquakes was detected north of Herðubreiðartögl. Very few earthquakes are now being detected by Tungnafellsjökul.
