[quote:Luisport:MV8xNzU0NjcwXzMzMTg5MDc5XzJGM0YyN0M=] Inge B. says: September 2, 2012 at 17:08 The Skaftá glacier run is still continuing: water height 310cm, rising; water discharge: 250 m3/sec., rising; light absorption: 550; conductivity: 287. http://vmkerfi.vedur.is/vatn/VV_Frame.php?r=24013&load_graph=1&direct=1&station_id=218&station_name=Su%F0urland&page_id=281 I’d though like to emphasize that this is still a really small glacier run, even for Skaftá (normally between 1.000 and 2.000 m3/sec.). A bit of activity is rising at Bárdarbunga: http://hraun.vedur.is/ja/oroi/dyn.gif and http://hraun.vedur.is/ja/oroi/skr.gif . But this could be wind related: http://www.vegagerdin.is/umferd-og-faerd/faerd-og-astand/faerd-og-vedur/vedur-um-land-allt/linurit/st194.htm Reply Inge B. says: September 2, 2012 at 17:24 The earthqakes at Reykjanes Peninsula are still interesting. The swarm near Fagradalsfjall stopped around 10:00 this morning, only to do some sort of rift jump and continue again near Bláfjallaskáli where the 4,6 quake and its aftershocks were some days ago. The funny thing about it is also that Fagradalsfjall, where IMO measured around 5.000 (!) microquakes between 1997 and 2002 http://www.vedur.is/media/vedurstofan/utgafa/skyrslur/2010/2010_003rs.pdf , p.70 , is part of Krýsuvík volcanic system, whereas Bláfjallaskáli area belongs to the next en echelon system to the east, Brennisteinsfjöll. I think this proves the tectonic nature of the quakes. http://www.vedur.is/skjalftar-og-eldgos/jardskjalftar/reykjanesskagi/ We see rifting in action here! Reply Inge B. says: September 2, 2012 at 17:51 Not very exact terminology used by me here. A rift jump actually means that a big rift is transferred from one place to another – over a long time -, in Iceland eg. the active rifting took part till 7 million years ago along a line which reached from Snaefellsnes over to Skagi peninsula in the north and was afterwards transferred to the places where it is now (Reykjanes, Western Rift zone, Northern Rift zone and Eastern Rift Zone). http://volcanocafe.wordpress.com/2012/09/02/answers-to-the-last-riddle-and-an-important-change-in-the-menu/ [/quote]
