Seismic unrest under Vatnajokull glacier between Bardabunga and Askja volcanoes beginns in August 2014.
Seismic Fracture eruption?: Between Bardabunga and Askja volcanoe high seismic activity may indicate a upcomming fissure eruption on Iceland. Current information via Source (c)Icelandic Met Office (http://en.vedur.is)

Seismic unrest (swarm and tremors) near Askja in Mai 2014.

Grafic left: all seismic since 16 August 2014 ; tremor goes up end of August

Seismic ASKJA: A seismic swarm near Askja volcano on Iceland may indicate magma intrusion. This could lead to an eruption at this area.

Seismic unrest (swarm tremors) starts in 2012. From the Iclandic Met office (c)2012

Seismic ICELAND, 20.Oct.2012: The earthquake sequence which started offshore North Iceland continues 7 days later. It is neither possible to estimate how long this activity will be ongoing, nor can further earthquakes of M4 be excluded. These earthquakes are purely tectonic and no signs of volcanic activity have been observed.
