The Giant Awakens – Eruption continues at full force!

 Bárðarbunga (“Bow-thar-bungar” in English) the giant Icelandic stratovolcano is already awaken according to Icelandic scientists. Bárðarbunga lies beneath the NW part of the Vatnajökull icecap, NW of Grímsvötn volcano, and contains a subglacial 700-m-deep caldera. It rises to 2,009 m (6,591 feet) above sea level, making it the second highest mountain in Iceland.

Bárðarbunga last had a major eruption in 1477 when it produced a large ash and pumice fall-out deposit. Bárðarbunga also produced the largest known lava flow during the past 10,000 years on earth.

Amazing pictures of the eruption in Holuhraun. The crack that is erupting is nearly a kilometer and a half long and the bursts of lava are between 20 and 70 meters high. The flow of lava is roughly equivalent to the flow of Iceland’s greatest river.

Ongoing Volcanic Eruption!

While it’s unclear what could happen next, this fissure eruption is one of the more desirable ways for Iceland’s highly active underworld to let off some steam. The relatively calm eruptions have yet to produce much ash, and they also did not melt through the glacier, which could have caused serious flooding in the area.

The new eruption prompted the authorities in Iceland to briefly raise the alert for air travel to red, but within a few hours when it was determined that the eruption was not producing any threatening ash in the atmosphere, the restricted flight area around the area was cancelled. As of this writing, no flight restrictions are in effect and airports are open in Iceland.

An eruption of a volcano nearer to the capital of Reykjavik in 2010 disrupted flight traffic over Europe for days, leading to the cancellation of over 100,000 flights.

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.
