Bárdabunga is known for sending melt water often not only in one direction.

So this could mean elevated water levels in Jökulsá á Fjöllum and/or: Skjálfandafljót – both in northern direction, Kaldakvísl / Hágöngulón in western direction, Tungnaá in southern direction – perhaps. Also normally it takes some hours, till it is to be seen in the rivers.

But regrettably IMO hydrology is down at the moment.

Tungurahua Volcano, Ecuador
Eruptions of Tungurahua volcano, Ecuador on 16th December created air waves which broke windows in nearby towns. Pyroclastic flows occurred on the upper flanks of the volcano. Ash emissions reached 3 km above the summit. The eruption was associated with new magma intrusion under the volcano. [link to www.volcanolive.com]

Ecuador

We’ve seen a couple spectacular images of explosions from Ecuador’s currently noisiest volcano, Tungurahua. This rejuvenated activity in December has promoted evacuations of people living near the volcano as both ash fall and pyroclastic flows are a very real hazard. The plume reached as high as 3 km / 16,500 feet over the weekend and seismicity remains high — all of which has the volcano on Orange Alert by the national civil defence agency of Ecuador.



Indonesia

Across the globe in Indonesia, Lokon has also been keeping active with numerous explosions, like this one from earlier today. That same brief Reuters report claims that Lokon has experienced over 800 explosions over the last 6 months, an impressive number to say the least. The plumes from the explosions are reaching 3-4 km / 11-14,000 feet. Lokon is joined by Paluweh in this week’s Global Volcanism Program Weekly Volcanic Activity Report and another 6 volcanoes are on Orange Alert status according to PVMBG.

Russia

The eruption of Tolbachik is still ongoing as this recent Terra image shows. Even with its remote location on the Kamchatka Peninsula, the eruption is drawing tourists – and I suppose it isn’t a shock considering how impressive the lava flows are (see below — be sure to check out all the images in the KVERT gallery). Some people are also trying to connect this fairly small eruption to my favorite, the Maya Apocalypse, claiming a sign of the end will be eruptions. Of course, as we all know, eruptions occur all the time, so why is this eruption in one of the most volcanically-active places on the planet a harbinger of doom? It isn’t. The latest GVP Report has the lava flows stretching 17-20 km from the vent, quite the distance for any lava flow, and the alert level remains at Orange. [link to www.wired.com]

Monday, December 17, 2012 19:44 Remains eruptive activity of the volcano Tungurahua
During the night of 16 December, several explosive events occurred that generated strong guns that were heard even in remote villages as volcano Pillaro and Salcedo. The seismic monitoring network, there was this activity interspersed with several episodes of harmonic tremor and tremor emission. Associated with explosive events reported expulsion of incandescent blocks that rose about 200 meters above the summit of the volcano and landed in the top of the cone.
With respect to the two scenarios proposed in the report No. 8 December 14 and after reviewing data from different monitoring parameters is considered that there are more elements that support the occurrence of the second stage, ie that there was an intrusion magma slowly at a moderate volume. This scenario could produce more explosions, continued ashfall and not rule out the possibility that new generated pyroclastic flows that could potentially affect up populated areas. Regarding pyroclastic flows, it is necessary to emphasize that there is no system of monitoring to anticipate the occurrence and extent of these phenomena. Therefore we recommend to the authorities and the general community to maintain their security relevant actions.

Magnitude 3.3 earthquake in Bárðarbunga volcano during the night
Posted on December 18, 2012 by Jón Frímann
At 02:55 UTC today (18.12.2012) there was a magnitude 3.3 earthquake in Bárðarbunga volcano system. Earthquakes are common in this area so this activity is no surprise. Origins of this earthquakes are due to tectonic movements in the area. Not magma related changes.

Aftershocks have followed this earthquake. So far the largest one got the magnitude 2.2. More earthquake activity can be expected in this area. But that is normal and not unexpected.

For several hours photographing lava river and fiery torch was carried almost continuously, close to 10 pm erupting cone sent ash cloud closed.
"The most exciting moment I would call the cone explosion, which occurred about two o'clock in the morning of 16 December. We all were in a tent and tried to sleep, when a loud roar, the sound wave just hit the ears, - says Sergey Gorshkov - it felt that the land away from under his feet. We ran outside, fearing that the new cracks may form in the area of the camp, and suddenly saw the cones, which we enjoyed a few hours ago, not anymore. So we were the last ones to watch it work. "

Volcanic activity world-wide 18 December 2012: Tungurahua, Tobachik, Paluweh, Popocatépetl, Fuego, Pacaya, Santiaguito, Turrialba, Reventador, Galeras, Ruiz, Machin, Adatara

Tuesday Dec 18, 2012 20:42 PM | Age: 0 min

BY: T

The eruption of Plosky Tolbachik volcano in Kamchatka continues with vigorous lava emission and strong tremor as during the beginning of the eruption.
Lava flows have now reached a reported length of 20 km.
The seismic activity from the volcano is so strong that the seismic recordings from nearby Klyuchevskoy and Bezymianny are obscured.

Tungurahua volcano in Ecuador remains very active, although the strength of explosions, compared to Saturday-Sunday, has calmed down since yesterday. Constant ash emissions, strong strombolian explosions and pulses of lava fountain up to 1 KM (!) height above the crater were reported seen during the night.
In the morning, a small small pyroclastic flow descended through the gorge of La Hacienda. Occasionally, roars of varying intensity were heard. A dark ash column rises about 1.5 km and drifts westward. Tremor remains at high near saturation levels.

Seismicity has recently decreased and become more discontinuous at Reventador volcano, the second currently active volcano in Ecuador.

A stronger phase of activity occurred at the lava dome of Paluweh volcano this morning. VAAC Darwin reported an ash plume rising to 11,000 ft (3.4 km), i.a. 2.5 km above the crater.

The number of emissions of Popocatépetl volcano in Mexico has further increased; there were 121 events, i.e. about 4 per hour counted since yesterday. Most produced only puffs of steam and gas, and in some cases very small amounts of ash. Other monitoring parameters remain unchanged. During the night glow was observed in the crater. In the morning, a steam and gas plume was seen rising about 800 meters above the crater and drifting to the southeast.

A relatively strong SO2 cloud was detected over Turrialba volcano in Costa Rica today, suggesting increased degassing.

Mild strombolian activity was observed at Fuego volcano with with ash plumes rising up to 400 m and incandescent bombs reaching 150 m above the crater. The lava flow remains active and was about 300 m long this morning.

Weak incandescence was seen from the Santiaguito lava dome at night and the lava flows descending its flanks remained active.

Pacaya volcano remains calm at the surface, but small volcanic earthquakes are occurring frequently.

Occasional weak ash explosions continue to occur from time to time at Galeras volcano in Colombia, such as observed during exceptionally clear weather yesterday.
Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Colombia continues to have pulses of small quakes and produces a significant steam and gas plume, occasionally accompanied by ash venting.
Seismic unrest continues at Cerro Machin volcano. On December 14 and 16, 2 felt earthquakes occurred under the volcano.

Our earthquakes near volcanoes page showed that a shallow magnitude 3.7 quake occurred yesterday very near Adatara volcano near Fukushima City in Japan. Adatara is part of a group of overlapping active stratovolcanoes and was last active in 1990. [link to www.volcanodiscovery.com]

Bárdarbunga calling

Posted on December 18, 2012by Spica Bárdarbunga, a big volcanic edifice and central volcano located under Vatnajökull in Iceland, has been showing unrest for some time now. There was esp. the glacier run (jökulhlaup) from June 2011 into the reservoir Hágöngulón in the highlands of Iceland. But also lately, growing unrest showed on the tremor charts of IMO:

Under the five big ice caps which together cover about 10 % Iceland’s surface, there are located 9 or 10 central volcanoes incl. parts of their fissure systems. Under Vatnajökull alone, there are 2 twin systems of basaltic and rhyolitic central volcanoes, i.e. Grímsvötn-Gjálp and Bárdarbunga – Hamarinn/Loki-Fögrufjöll, Kverkfjöll in the north, all of these part of the EVZ (Eastern Volcanic Zone of Iceland), and two separate active central volcanoes, Esjufjöll and Öraefajökull, forming a separate belt in the east. (Thordarson, 2007)

Bárdarbunga central volcano, proudly presenting a 80 km2 caldera with a depth of 700 m, and reaching heights of 2100 m at its summit, is placed in the northwestern part of Vatnajökull ice cap, north of Grímsvötn.

Of these volcanic systems, Grímsvötn is by far the most productive with 480 eruptions in 6.500 years, whereas Bárdarbunga prehistoric eruption frequency (which means in Iceland till 1.000 BP) reaches 330 eruptions during the same period of time and an average of 5 per century. On the other hand, tephra layers from Bárdarbunga are dispersed more widely, which indicates „more voluminous and/or longer lasting eruptions than these of Grímsvötn“. Additionally, there were 135 tephra layers which could be identified with Grímsvötn, 87 originating from Bárdarbunga and only 17 from Kverkfjöll since Icelandic settlement started in the 9th century. This gives Bárdarbunga the place of the 2nd or third most active volcanic system in Iceland in historic and prehistoric times – rivaling Hekla. (Larsen, 2011). But probably there were much more eruptions, mostly very small ones which couldn’t break the glacier surface. See also GVP: [link to www.volcano.si.edu]

But Bárdarbunga also has the longest or perhaps – if Askja is competitive enough – the second longest fissure system of Iceland (around 190 km), extending to the south into the Landmannalaugar region (Veiðivötn, Vatnaöldur) and also some 50 km in northeastern direction from her outlet glacier Dyngjujökull. It produced not only one of the most important flood eruption events in historic time (Veiðivötn in 1480), but also an enormous lava field, the so-called Þjórsárhraun (2130 km3) 8.500 years ago.

There has now been some earthquakes, one of them magn. 3.3. Like many other calderas, she shows unrest from time to time, which may or may not mean more. This is anyways a volcano which deserves some attention.

Bárðarbunga sits pretty much on top of the Icelandic Hotspot. Or at least the location where the center of it is believed to be. While Grímsvötn is a bruiser, Bárðarbunga is the one sitting in the corner that you don’t want to get pissed off. Though mostly quiet when compared to the other ones making a racket in the bar, this is the one that can become quite irritable.

One small factoid that most people forget. The Hreppar and Tröllaskagi microplates. Between these two lie a tranform fault where each side slides past the other. Where this tranform ends at, is at or close to Bárðarbunga, where it meets the spreading center that runs down through Iceland.

NOTE: The Tröllaskagi microplate/block may be locked to North America since it shows no or minimal motion with relation to it

Together, this is an RRF configured triple junction (ridge-ridge-transform). Triple junctions themselves, are some of the most seismically active regions on Earth. FFR types are inherently unstable, and (according to Global Tectonics 3rd ed) eventuall evolve into FFR. (transform-transform-ridge)

So.. you have a rather large semi-unknown volcano, sitting on a hotspot, at a triple junction.

Is it any wonder why it can get nasty if it wants to?

September 29, 1996 – A magnitude 5.6 (Mw) quake occurred under Bárðarbunga. This quake caused a lot of questions to be asked. It didn’t show an offset, like a strike-slip, it didn’t show one side sliding over another. It had a “non double-couple” solution that yielded no volumetric displacement.
