UPDATE 4 – Number of quakes and intensty appears have increased. See gimsfjall for comparsion. Better to move slighly away, and start admit there might be magna pnetrating into the glacier. Like a cutting torch but drowned in own noise (boiling noise).

UPDATE – Giggle translaed (but edited)!
*I usually do not do this, but easier for our readers have latest, from IMO*

“seismic activity has been increasing again up from seven o’clock,” says Kristin Jónsdottir, an earthquake expert at the Meteorological Office in conversation with DV. She said the earthquake swarm at Bárðarbunga, one of Iceland’s most powerful volcanoes, have been active since last night, now growing again. It describes the uncertainty by earthquake (specialists) earlier today.
“This is such a great activity. This is the strongest earthquake we have seen in this volcano since records began, “says Kristin.
– Flooding in Jökulsá – “The main threat right now is flood risk,” she describes in more detail how this scenario could work. “There is a dynamic of movement in the Earth’s (Magma) crust several kilometers and it is moving closer to the surface, and when she does she breaks the crust that is above it, and then have the earth itself. It’s these earthquakes we recommend when magma is moving and pushing everything around them. Deform the rock around it, “explains Kristin. “There’s really thick glacier over so when magma comes up and meets the glacier, it is the energy of the melt this ice. If this activity continues, the melting glacial ice there this water would not stop for very long, but there we go then something started. It is very likely that it will be down to the Glacial River in the mountains, “says Kristin.
——–
Kristin says it is not clear how the chain of events evolve if the magma reaches the surface. “I’m not sure what happens first, it may well be that it will first flood and other devices even longer. It depends very much on the circumstances and how powerful eruption is, where it occurs, how thick the ice is on top. He’s really misthick in this area, so it is everything where it occurs, whether it is 100 meters thick ice and 800 meter thick ice. All of this is important and why it is so important to tap earthquakes so we know exactly where they land, “says Kristin.

update from IMO:

[link to en.vedur.is]

“Seismic activity in Bárðarbunga volcano has increased. A seismic swarm has been ongoing since 03AM this morning, and near continuous earthquakes have been occurring since then. The depths of earthquakes in the present swarm are in the upper crust and their magnitudes are mainly around 1.5; a few earthquakes are of magnitude greater than ML3.
Long-term seismic and GPS data indicate that there is increased unrest in the northwestern region of Vatnajökull glacier, where Bárðarbunga is located:
Over the last seven years seismic activity has been gradually increasing in Bárðarbunga and the fissure swarm north of the volcano. This activity dropped down at the Grímsvötn eruption in May 2011, but soon after, the activity started to gradually increase again and has now reached similar level of activity to that just before the Grímsvötn eruption. Earlier this year, in the middle of May 2014, there was a small swarm of over 200 events and now the present swarm has already generated at least 300 earthquakes.
Since early June 2014, displacements at GPS stations around Vatnajökull (Hamarinn, Grímsfjall, Vonarskarð and Dyngjuháls) show an increased upward movement and away from Bárðarbunga.
Together, these two systems indicate magma movements in Bárðarbunga. At 15:00 on August 16, there is no unequivocal indication that magma has reached the surface.”

That ring structure is a bit of a puzzler. But, going out on a complete flight of fancy, how bad can it get, possibly..? There are two flavours of really, really bad to choose from:

1. The ring is the start of a ring fault bounding a caldera collapse. This could potentially get to VEI6, depending on the magma sources and mixing with the overlying 700 m of water ice. In that case, yes, it would certainly mess up transatlantic flights, especially with where the wind's blowing.

2. It's the start of a major fissure eruption, which we've been kind-of anticipating is going to turn up in the next few decades anyway. This volcano has produced the largest Holocene eruptions known, by volume. In that case, they won't be too much ash, but poisonous clouds instead, belching out for months on end, and drifting down over parts of Europe. Last time, 10000 people died in Scotland alone, if memory serves - and Laki wasn't that big, as these things go.

But it might just fizzle out and do nothing.

This time.

Sweet dreams...

That documentary was propably about Katla or Laki( Grímsvötn system)..
Katla is a real witch and she's responible for 2/8 major Icelandic eruptions..
Grímsvötn are responsiple for 1/8 major eruptions and Bárðarbunga 2/8 major eruptions..
These are the three most dangerous volcano's here in Iceland.

The thing with Grímsvötn and Bárðarbunga (which are somewhat interconnected systems) however is that since they are located far away from human settlements,unlike Katla, they are not very well documented throughout the ages..
They are however both extremely dangerous..
Here's why.. [link to academic.emporia.edu]
They both sit on top of the focus of the Icelandic mantle plume..

Up to 581 quakes!
Plus a 3.0 not too long ago.

For the last hour the activity is all near Kistufell.
Some of the quakes are pretty shallow.
