Since I am not Lurking I can’t do a nice plot of it. But something is definitly moving those quakes upwards, the average depth get lower all the time. If you look at the map in the link you can see the volcano marked ESE, E to NNE of Grimsey. http://en.vedur.is/earthquakes-and-volcanism/earthquakes/tjornes-small/#view=map No, known eruption the NW of Grimsey, but it at an odd spot of the Grimsey Oblique Rift (GOR), but there is a marked uplift there from the rift depressed valley. It is most likely a central volcano that is unrelated to the other in NVZ. Another thing I just found out. Theistareykirs known historic activity started with an uneruptive rifting episode in 1618. http://earthice.hi.is/sites/jardvis.hi.is/files/Pdf_skjol/Jokull58_pdf/jokull58-einarsson.pdf Now over to Brandsdóttir: “Four left-stepping, en-echelon, NS-striking rift segments (volcanic systems) exist along the GSZ.” There you have it, there are no less the for volcanoes withing the Grimsey seismic zone. Fun to be had. And as we move into the Husavik Flatöy Fault it gets even more interesting, “The southwestern margin of the fault is characterized by NE-striking lavas which dip steeply (30–50) towards Eyjafjarðaráll. The lavas are dissected by en echelon arrays of conjugate strike-slip faults intersecting the HFF fault at angles of N20–30W and N20E. Some can be traced onto land where they exhibit complicated flower patterns.” http://meetings.copernicus.org/www.cosis.net/abstracts/EGU05/07219/EGU05-J-07219.pdf So, the harmonic tremor in the HFF a couple of days ago was probably magmatic movement following the mainly tectonic medium sized earthquake swarm last week. The current earthquake activity in the GSZ is most likely a series of seismic rifts with following magmatic emplacements. Or in laymans terms. We might have a run up for a volcano we do not even have a name for. http://volcanocafe.wordpress.com/2012/10/05/volcanic-riddles-for-the-crowd/comment-page-1/#comment-65771 [/quote]
