Iceland Shakes – A LOT! < UPDATED


They say Iceland is calming down as far as that volcano goes – but there was 5.7 quake there today.

LATER – BBC: Iceland volcano: Magma moving towards new volcanic system

The magma from Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano could be moving towards another large volcanic system.

Data recorded by a team from the University of Cambridge suggests that 50 million cubic metres of molten rock has moved in the last 24 hours.

If it continues on a northern trajectory it could feed into the Askja volcanic system, potentially triggering a large eruption. . . .

  1. I’m pretty sure sulfur mixed with moisture reflects the sunlight.  This will cool the earth if the sulfur-moisture mixture is large enough. This is what lead to the year-without-a-summer in 1816.

    Chemical Fact Sheets — Sulfur Dioxide (SO2)
    Sulfur dioxide dissolves easily in water to form sulfuric acid.  Sulfuric acid is a major component of acid rain.  Acid rain can damage forests and crops, change the acidity of soils, and make lakes and streams acidic and unsuitable for fish.  Sulfur dioxide also contributes to the decay of building materials and paints, including monuments and statues… Most SO2 exposures are caused by people breathing contaminated outdoor air.  Therefore, limit your activities outdoors when you know that air pollution levels are high.
