Yellow alert to be re-evaluated tomorrow and may be dropped back to green as further analysis of seismic data provides no observable signs of increased likely-hood of imminent eruption. Efforts to be made to increasing monitoring to greater understand the activities.

P.S. There are stories from the eruption in 2000 being posted as current news today. It is old news not what is happening now.

A further guess from me would be, that there will be a eruption on the north-eastern part of the Hekla-Ridge. All those cindercones and lavadeposits to the Northeast of Hekla are there for a reason.

yes, but its on edge of next volcanic system, belonging Vatnafjöll, and not a Hekla quake per se. However any quake is suspicious, in that area, but there are no other clues in effect at this hour

“quake is suspicious” he says.

It’s also slap dab out in the area where that wad of magma wandered off to several months ago.

Carl had me investigate an odd deflationary episode at Hekla, and from what I could tell, the magma had retreated towards the plain south of Hekla. No idea what it was up to, or if it ever re-inflated back to it’s pre movement levels.

There is an old post about it somewhere here on VC. (The observation that the area belonged to Vatnafjöll came up then also)

The alert level 1 (uncertainty) as well as aviation code yellow are still valid at the moment in Iceland re. Hekla. [link to www.mbl.is]
Martin Hensch, a German volcanologist working for Icelandic IMO, was interviewed yesterday by the daily newspaper Morgunblaðið. There he said, that they had taken this decision, because there had never been such a pattern of quakes at Hekla since the last eruption in 2000. And though there was not a lot of action, Hekla is so special in this. Concerning another volcano, the situation would not have been alarming. [link to www.mbl.is]

Iceland is fascinating.

I was recently reading about the 2011 Grimsvotn eruption. Apparently it marked a bigger development that I realised.

The area was analysis of thorium content.

The general picture is that apparently, ever since Laki, thorium content of magmas erupted in that area has been steadily increasing, up to and including the 2004 eruption. This is interpreted as being due to fractional crystalisation processes concentrating Th over time; it seems that even as late as 2004, the system was still erupting the last dregs of the ‘Laki’ pulse of magma!

That all changed in 2011; the products of that eruption contained much less thorium than any eruption since Laki (if I’m remembering what I read correctly). This implies a new source of fresh magma, straight from the mantle. The rapid inflation prior to the eruption, the size of the eruption, and the immediate and rapid reflation starting immediately after eruption ceased tend to confirm that – and, perhaps, bode ill for the next few decades.

I wonder what the chances are of another Laki-type event?

I was aware of discussions in these general terms before, but I hadn’t previously seen the evidence of the thorium. I’ll see if I can dig up the reference.

Irpsit in Hekla mode says:

That is extremely interesting. That confirms that Laki was triggered by a large hotspot pulse. That eruption pushed a lot of old magma together with new one.

A similar pulse seems to have occurred sometime around the 1720s.

Another pulse seems to have occurred around 1860-1900: many large eruptions around Vatnajokull.

It could be that the 2011 eruption was triggered by one such pulse.

We do not know how long do those pulses occur, and when before such a large eruption. But eruption frequency increases after those episodes, for several decades.

One is a ghost. There is only one quake. Or perhaps a longer quake. Anyways, it seems too much coincidence happening now. It could be located nearer to Hekla than it shows in the map. Or perhaps it starts to trigger movements, tectonic or magmatic further west of Hekla. There seems to be a lot of unusual quakes happening. This could be a prelude to a different sort of eruption in or around Hekla, in my opinnion a fissure with a larger voluem of magma erupting, probably basalt.

“No seismicity has been detected northeast of Hekla since the weekend. One small earthquake occured 8km south of Hekla last night, which is no unusual spot for seismicity. The aviation colour-code for Hekla is still ‘yellow’. The uncertainty level declared by the Icelandic Civil Defence is still valid. No obvious signs of an imminent eruption are detected.”

If I remember correctly, wasn’t there a similar sudden reversal in GPS movement as well shortly before one of the Icelandic eruptions? I can’t remember which one it was, maybe Hekla, but I remember discussing it in the run-up to Eyjafjallajoküll. This looks really similar.

Description
The Police in Hvolsvollur and the Civil Defense department have expressed concern over increased seismic activity around Hekla volcano in the past few days. Seven tremors have been measured in the last two weeks, a frequency which has never been matched since Hekla's previous eruption. According to geologists at the Icelandic Meteorological Office, the seven earthquakes were measured some 5 km from the top of the volcano and at a depth of 11 to 12 km. However, no magma movement has been measured. The volcano is being closely monitored at the moment by geologists who decided to alert authorities as Hekla eruption usually happen with very little warning, and the mountain itself is a popular hike among locals and tourists alike. The warning issued is the lowest out of three and is raised in order to initiate an appropriate and rapid emergency response in the case of an eruption. Internet users can monitor the activity around the volcano themselves with a live webcam of Hekla. Quite reassuringly, what looks like smoke at the top of the volcano is in fact just a cloud (at least for the moment).
