The Eruption Could Last For Ten Years!

The above photo is of the newly started eruption

 

“The eruption has been going on all day, incredibly. It has not been weeker and if anything it has been stronger in the afternoon,” says Armann Hoskuldsson volcanologist, but he is in the eruption area. He estimates that between three and four hundred cubic meters of lava flows out of the crack every second.

He says tough to predict a sequel but as the situation is in the evening then no eruption subsided since it began at four in the night. Ármann not prevent the eruption will last several days. “This is graceful. The lava has been much thicker the evening and was probably be about twenty feet in thickness. So lava burst edges now that we were going and then rushes lava completely out of the sand. Since we tested the most, ten meters per minute, it shoots out. “

“The eruption could last for ten years”

“This cycle could last for some nine months, but it might even last for ten years.” says Armann.

ICELAND TORN APART!

Eldfell is a composite volcanic cone just over 200 metres (660 ft) high on the Icelandic island of Heimaey. It formed in a volcanic eruption which began without warning just outside the town of Heimaey on 23 January 1973. Its name means Mountain of Fire in Icelandic.
The eruption caused a major crisis for the island and nearly led to its permanent evacuation. Volcanic ash fell over most of the island, destroying many houses, and a lava flow threatened to close off the harbour, the island’s main income source via its fishing fleet. An operation was mounted to cool the advancing lava flow by pumping sea water onto it, which was successful in preventing the loss of the harbour.

After the eruption finished, the islanders used heat from the slowly cooling lava flows to provide hot water and to generate electricity. They also used some of the extensive tephra, fall-out of airborne volcanic material, to extend the runway at the island’s small airport, and as landfill, on which 200 new houses were built.

 

A fascinating extract from the ITV documentary “Savage Earth” first broadcast in the 1990s. Surtsey was the island born from an underwater volcanic eruption off the south coast of Iceland in 1963. Haemay was the small town on the Westmann islands, south of Iceland, which was awoken one night in 1973 to find its volcano had burst into life. The townsfolk fought the advancing lava with high pressure hoses and managed to turn it away from their harbour.

ONCE AGAIN ERUPTION STARTING IN ICELAND! WATCH IT LIVE!

Can You Pronounce The Name Of  The Mountain?

A Code Orange has been issued in light of increased likelihood of an eruption in Bárðarbunga volcano located in the northwestern corner of Vatnajökull glacier, Southeast Iceland, after continued earthquakes in the area this morning, mbl.is reports.

The Icelandic Met Office, which oversees not only the weather but also earthquakes and possible volcanic eruptions in Iceland, increased the danger level from yellow to orange, which indicates that the volcano shows heightened or escalating unrest with increased potential of eruption. The next and highest level code is red, which is issued when an eruption begins.

Kristín Jónsdóttir at the Iceland Met Office told RÚV that magma was on the move under the glacier, trying to break up in two different locations.

Bárðarbunga is Iceland’s second highest mountain at 2,000 meters (6,562 feet).

Indications of an imminent eruption in Bárðarbunga will likely appear several hours beforehand if an eruption begins, according to geophysicist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson.

Watch the Eruption Live (If and When it Starts)

If you are interested in seeing an eruption start you might be in luck. A webcam has been placed at Grímsvötn, approximately 30 kilometers (20 miles) from the crater where the eruption might start.

New earthquake meters were also put in place yesterday. Björn Oddsson, a specialist at the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management in Iceland put the camera in place yesterday, ruv.is reports.

You can view the webcam by clicking on the below image of the eruption in Eyjafjallajölull.

After having seen many different world wonders in numerous countries and four different continents, I can still honestly say that Iceland is still my favourite country in the world to travel in.

That might sound strange to you – that my favourite place to travel in is my own home country.

But no matter how many times I visit the natural wonders of Iceland, they always look completely different then the last time I saw them. 

That´s why I think Iceland is the best place in the world to travel in, because it never seizes to amaze me.

THE MOST ROMANTIC PLACES IN ICELAND

What are the most romantic places in Iceland and what makes one place more romantic than the other? See my list of top 3 most romantic places in Iceland.

When Iceland is filled with stunning landscapes it may be hard to choose where to go for a romantic destination. It doesn’t come as a surprise that many couples choose to come to Iceland to get married. But which place to choose for a romantic weekend? Following is a list of my top 3 romantic locations in Iceland, all easily reached from Reykjavík.

Thorsmork valley

Þórsmörk is my top romantic destination. Obviously it’s the company that makes every location romantic but it helps to be surrounded by stunning views. Experiencing the midnight sun here is something that will stay with you forever.

This green valley is filled with beautiful rock formations, mountains, rivers and great hiking paths for every level. You can choose to sleep in Skagfjörðsskáli hutBásar hut  or you can bring your own tent and nestle in a small clearing. Thorsmork is known for having slightly better weather than its surroundings – but even if it rains, it just makes it cosy and romantic listening to the drops on the roof of your tent.

Þórsmörk’s beauty is mentioned in the story of Burnt Njal (Brennu-Njáls saga). Gunnar, a famous and strong Viking, had been outlawed. As he was riding out of Þórsmörk he looked back and said that the hill was so beautiful that he would not leave. And still today, when you go to Þórsmörk, you’ll never want to leave.

Snaefellsnes peninsula

Snæfellsjökull is the glacier that crowns the end of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Surrounding it is a national park, filled with birdlife, hiking treks and small fishing villages. Between Arnarstapi and Hellnar is a beautiful and easy hiking trek (less than an hour) and a nice little café by the seaside in Hellnar.

In the small village Rif, you can find a café called Gamla Rif that serves one of the best seafood soups I’ve ever had. You’ll surely find it, just ask the locals.

But trekking up to the top of Snæfellsjökull glacier in the middle of the summer and standing on top of the glacier, looking towards Reykjavík on one side and over Breiðafjörður on the other in twilight of different shades of pink, orange, golden and purple is ideal for lovebirds. Even better if you remember to bring a bottle of hot chocolate and a blanket with you.

Reykjadalur valley

Reykjadalur is a valley just outside of Reykjavík. Through it runs a warm river. It’s warm all year round so you could possibly go there in the wintertime and sit in hot water whilst watching the Northern Lights. (Basically any hot tub/river/hot spring is the most romantic place on earth if you have the Northern Lights putting on a private dance above you!) Nevertheless, I’d rather recommend going there in the summer. It’s quite popular so chances are you won’t be there on your own. If you go mid-week and overnight you might be in luck.

My advice: Firstly book a table at Fjöruborðið (At the Seashore) for the best langoustine you will possibly ever have. They are busy for a reason, make sure you reserve a table. The restaurant is situated in Stokkseyri, a short drive from Hveragerði where the hike starts to Reykjadalur. Then you can hike up to Reykjadalur in the evening (don’t worry, it doesn’t get dark in summertime!), bring a tent, sleeping bags (that you can zip up together!), a bottle of wine and maybe even some chocolate. Try to find a suitable place to camp on the banks of the river. Then enjoy a glass of wine with your loved one whilst sitting in warm water underneath the midnight sun. Just remember not to make a mess and clean up any leftovers of food or drinks. The following day you can jog down to Hveragerði for breakfast.

BIG FIRST TIME CATCH

 We thoroughly enjoy getting away from the game and going out fishing because it’s so relaxing, so quiet and peaceful. I mean, there’s no noise other than nature – and it’s so different from what we do in a every day situation that it just eases our mind.

I’m an outdoors girl – I like to go fishing, riding four-wheelers, hunting. But still there is a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot and fishing is really boring, unless you catch an actual fish … then it is disgusting … and somebody just back of you while you are fishing is as bad as someone looking over your shoulder while you write a letter to your boyfriend.
