Katla volcano Iceland
  •  

    Hekla is the most active volcano in Iceland and often referred to as the Queen of Iceland´s volcanoes.

    Hekla last erupted in February of 2000. Scientists believe that Hekla is likely to erupt soon and if that happens – you will be able to watch it happen live on the Hekla web cam – right here on floodwarn!

    Latest information

    05/10/2011 Katla has had numerous earthquakes since the early hours of this morning, this swarm of quakes have been nearer the surface and have been intense with 4.1 registered on the scale.

    This indicates that something is happening with Magma moving towards the surface.

    Iceland met report no eruption at this time.

    Floodwarn believe some form of eruption is likely in the next few days and possibly within hours.

    The webcam on Katla has not been working for last 24 hours, we hope it gets fixed soon, this is not to do with any eruption but more likely technical or weather related fault

    Iceland's massive volcano Katla appears on the brink of a major eruption just days after officials confirmed they had detected the start of eruptions over the summer.

    Measuring devices this morning have picked up a large earthquake swarm, usually a tell-tale sign of a potential volcanic eruption.

    The Icelandic Government last month announced it was increasing monitoring Katla,

    which is one of Europe's most feared volcanoes, following a consistent and strengthening spike of tremors and quakes.

    And last week, officials at the Iceland Meteorological Office confirmed a series of smaller eruptions had occurred in July strengthening fears of an imminent, much larger, eruption.

    Evidence gathered by geophysicists showed the magma had risen to the height of the glacier ice above the volcano causing it to melt.
    It is believed Katla, named after a vindictive troll of Viking folklore, has the potential to be much stronger and disruptive than the last two Icelandic volcanic eruptions that caused chaos across Europe's air space, grounding flights and closing airports.

    Katla is much larger than its neighbouring Eyjafjallajokull – which erupted last year (2010) - with a magma chamber about 10 times the size.

    Volcanologists warn that if Katla does erupt, and its a major eruption then the combination of the magma and the large ice sheet covering the volcano could lead to explosive activity and an ash plume for weeks, if not months.

    Latest Earthquakes in Iceland (Volano seismic activity)

    Locations of earthquakes in Iceland for the last 48 hours. The image is refreshed every 2 minutes. The circles on the map represent earthquakes for the last 48 hours. The colors of the circles represent the time since the earthquakes occured (the numbers below the color palette show hours). The latest earthquakes are shown in red and the darkblue ones are 24 hours old or more. The earthquakes stay blue until they are 48 hours old, then they disappear. Earthquakes bigger than M3 (on Richtersscale) are represented with green stars. Black triangles represent seismic stations (the SIL system) and brown lines show roads.

    • Katla Volcano about to erupt - according to some news media - NOT TRUE There is no more signs that Katla is about to erupt than last few months. Infact seismic activity appears to be very low at this time. For truth on Volcanic activity at Katla please use Floodwarn, Iceland Met Office or Jon Frimmann Blog

    You may be asked to let an add on access your computer this is normal for windows media player to access the web cam

    This is normal

    We have no control over the web cams directly and just provide a convenient viewing platform ( ie side by side cams) for users to view this awesome spectacle provided by nature.

    The cams are positioned in very remote areas and currently in the areas there are power outages that cause the cameras to go offline.

    In addition some cameras are positioned in no go areas with the current eruption and so a failure can not be repaired.

    Hekla Borehole Strain & Seismicity

     

        Strainmeters

        Strainmeters are used to measure the stress on a particular part of the Earth's crust, usually a fault. Strain meters work by measuring movement between two distant points.

        For example, if the distance between two points located one kilometer apart changes by one millimeter, the resulting strain is considered to be one microstrain.

        Strainmeters generally measure changes from positions in boreholes in the Earth's surface.

The “Ring of Fire” also called the Circum-Pacific belt, is the zone of earthquakes surrounding the Pacific Ocean — about 90% of the world’s earthquakes occur there. The next most seismic region (5-6% of earthquakes) is the Alpide belt (extends from Mediterranean region, eastward through Turkey, Iran, and northern India.

The greatest mountain range is the Mid-Ocean Ridge, extending 64,374 km (40,000 mi) from the Arctic Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, around Africa, Asia, and Australia, and under the Pacific Ocean to the west coast of North America. It has a greatest height of 4207m (13,800 ft) above the base ocean depth.

Subduction is the process of the oceanic lithosphere colliding with and descending beneath the continental lithosphere.
