    Why the cyclical nature of the volcano??
    Imagine one of those tipping bird /water balancing curiosities.
    The bird begins with its beak in a dish of water until enough water is ingested, altering the balance to make the bird tip back to expel the water. If we start with a empty vent, then add a constant flow of magma toward the surface into that vent. We get a slowly filling cone that increasingly is filled to a critical balance point of a magma pond holding back rising magma through gravity (effectively a molten plug).
    When we add the gas contained within the magma factor, we have magma trying to reach the surface while slowly off/gassing of So2, Co2 etc. as it rises. As the gas leaves the rising magma, some but not all of it expands and begins the sloshing effect as the gas percolates through the now lava. With this expansion and the continuing of the Magma rising, there comes a time when so much gas is held back that the critical balance collapses with the result of gas expelling in a flurry creating the fountain effect. All of the gas is expelled from the incoming magma at the same time it is ejected from the cone. The consistency of the magma and or the physical nature of the underground plumbing could either or in tandem create enough back pressure to hold back enough gasses to initiate the fountain.

    Icelandic Met Office
    The eruption in Fagradalsfjall continues through one main crater. The active crater is the fifth fissure opening that opened in the area on the 13th of April. Since the 27th of April, the volcanic activity was characterized by continuous lava fountains, while the activity changed at around midnight on the 2nd of May, and has since been showing pulsating behaviour. These pulses have intermittent active periods of 8-12 minutes, with 1-2 minutes of rest periods in between. The active pulses start with a strong fountain activity, with fountains reaching up to 100-150 m above ground level, and some even higher. These pulses are very apparent in the seismic tremor from seismic stations in a wide area around the eruption site.
    On Sunday morning, just after 6 am, the wind direction changed to slow easterly, and a few hours later smoke was detected in the southwest slopes of Geldingadalir. Possibly, hot pyroxene from the eruptive crater has been carried by the wind to the southwest of the lava field for about 300 meters distance and started a brush fire which can be seen on one of the two RÚV webcams.
    It is not clear what is causing these changes in volcanic activity, but changes in magma flow, the chemical composition of magma/gas, or possibly changes in the volcanic conduit cannot be ruled out.
    Considering these changes in activity, the size of the hazard area at the eruption site is being re-evaluated.

    Reykjavik Grapevine:
    The basalt lava from the volcano at Geldingadalir comes from a deeper place than any that has come from volcanoes in that area for over seven millenia. It arrives from around 20 kilometres deep, meaning—as one scientist said—that this is like having an express connection to the centre of the earth.
    And this volcano could be here to stay. Scientists are saying now that it could be an effusive eruption, and historically some of those have gone on for decades.

    -- News 10th April
    The fourth crack opened at the eruption sites in Geldingadalur last night, but it could first be seen on the web camera mbl.is. According to Einar Bessa Gestsson, a nature conservation specialist at the Icelandic Meteorological Office, the new fissure is halfway between the eruption fissures that opened this week.


    -- NEWS 5th April 2021
    A new fissure has opened just north of Geldingadalur, necessitating evacuation of the area.
    The fissure is at least 100 metres long, and is spraying lava into the air. This new fissure is as well far from populated areas and infrastructure, but no chances are being taken. As such, the eruption site is closed for the time being.
    “We can never know ahead of time how this volcano will behave,” volcanologist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson told RÚV. “There is a certain amount of pressure, and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of material coming to the surface, but it could lead to an increased eruption. But we see no signs that it’s decreasing. This event is not at all over.”

    And this volcano could be here to stay. Scientists are saying now that it could be an effusive eruption, and historically some of those have gone on for decades.

    Quote from Natturuva:
    The magma streams steadily up through the vents in Geldingadalir and there are no obvious signs that it is diminishing. As in previous days, the lava river runs from the vents, first to the northwest, then swinging southward towards the lava stream in southern sector of Geldingadalir. Two surface breakouts have formed from the lava river, flowing on the lava surface to the northeast. Lava also appears to be ponding in the area northeast of the Norðri (Northy) and, occasionally, local boiling events take place through the surface crust. One such event took place in the morning of the 1st April 2021 right before 7 am. The vents also appear to be feeding lava in a closed pathway (i.e., lava tube), judging from faint degassing paths in the region, feeding an active flow front halfway between Suðri (Southy) and the southern terminus of the lava flow field. The main change in the eruption appears to be at the vents. The intensity of activity in Norðri (Northy) seems to have increased, where semi-continuous bubble boiling maintains a steady gas and lava jetting reaching 10-15 m into the air. Good portion of the splatter (i.e., spatter), lands in and merges with the lava river that is steadily discharged from the vent. Possibly this may evolve into steady lava fountaining and formation of fountain-fed lavas. At the same time, the intensity appears to have diminished somewhat in Suðri (Southy). The level of the lava in the crater is high, the vent-opening seems narrower, and the rims somewhat higher. Such development is typical for low-intensity (weak) explosive activity – the explosions do not have the power to disperse the eruptive products and conversely, they pile up around the vent. A steady stream of lava pours out of Suðri (Southy) and it is noticeable that its exit point stands significantly higher than the lava exit point from Norðri (Northy)

  • Live Feed! Iceland Volcano Eruption near Reykjavik

    00

    Please subscribe to stay informed of the latest updates at the eruption site.

    This Iceland volcano eruption is a live feed from the newly named Geldingadalir volcano located in Fagradalsfjall on the Reykjanes Peninsula. The glow from the lava can be seen from the outskirts of Reykjavik, Iceland's capital, just 32km (20 miles) north of the eruption. The eruption of the Geldingadalir volcano started on March 19, 2021, after being dormant for almost 6,000 years. It is the first active volcano in the area in about 800 years. A new fissure opened on April 5th near the initial eruption site. The length of the fissure is estimated to be 200m and the middle of the fissure is approx. 1km NE of the eruption site. The lava flows toward Merardalir, east of the new fissure. The lava is thin-flowing, flows in a long and narrow lava river east of Merardalur, lava fields already beginning to form. On April 7th, a third fissure opened up between the existing two fissures. Lava from this one is flowing west towards the original eruption.

    This live Iceland volcano eruption video feed is from ruv.is - Icelandic national broadcaster & mbl.is. They own all rights to the video feed.

  • Meradalir Lava Field

    4:31

    The lava fields of Meradalir valleys. That is where the most of lava is flowing into. After the extensive walks by the lava falls, lava mountains and lava rivers in Meradalir I felt like I came from another world, the real world. The current world seemed delusional to me when I got home. There is the other dimension out there for sure of which we know know very little. I was also wondering why there are so many dust'devils around the lava fields (I never see them in Iceland other places). Also when I tried to collect some green lava pieces I cut my hand just from one touch (they are sharper than razors). Never seen such sharp stones, extremely weird experience. From my 11th expedition to the Volcano yesterday. May 11, 2021. I did extensive hike. I walked Natthagi trail to the eruption site. Arrived there around 1 pm. Then walked around the new lava to Meradalir valleys. Did some footages there, eventually returning back to the old hill by 9 pm. Left from the parking ca 00.45 past midnight. Long journey but what a material I brought!:)

  • Volcano wall crashed ????

    4:56

    Volcano wall crashed. It broke off and slided into the crater. This happened around 2 pm in the afternoon. I saw it crashing but didn't manage to film the very moment. This footage is seconds after. As you see it is still sliding and smoking. In this video you can aldo see the first eruption after the crash which had been quite crazy. I did not know what to expect next from the volcano so I started retreating and running away (thats why some camera shaking) as volcano behavior in those moments had been very unpredictable. When I returned back to the volcano at 9 pm in the evening (after Meradalir hike) the wall has been rebuilt and restored with new lava. The old wall melted away or was spewed out of crater in the course of those 6 hours. Check my evening videos from May 11 which I already have uploaded. From my 11th expedition to the Volcano yesterday. May 11, 2021. I did extensive hike. I walked Natthagi trail to the eruption site. Arrived there around 1 pm. Then walked around the new lava to Meradalir valleys. Did some footages there, eventually returning back to the old hill by 9 pm. Left from the parking ca 00.45 past midnight. Long journey but what a material I brought!:)

    Volcanic eruptions began in Geldingadalur in Fagradalsfjall around a quarter to nine on Friday evening, March 19, 2021. At noon on April 5, new eruption fissures opened northeast of Geldingadalur and lava flows from them east down into Meradalur. There is no danger of settlement due to the eruption.

    -- News 10th April
    The fourth crack opened at the eruption sites in Geldingadalur last night, but it could first be seen on the web camera mbl.is. According to Einar Bessa Gestsson, a nature conservation specialist at the Icelandic Meteorological Office, the new fissure is halfway between the eruption fissures that opened this week.


    -- NEWS 5th April 2021
    A new fissure has opened just north of Geldingadalur, necessitating evacuation of the area.
    The fissure is at least 100 metres long, and is spraying lava into the air. This new fissure is as well far from populated areas and infrastructure, but no chances are being taken. As such, the eruption site is closed for the time being.
    “We can never know ahead of time how this volcano will behave,” volcanologist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson told RÚV. “There is a certain amount of pressure, and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of material coming to the surface, but it could lead to an increased eruption. But we see no signs that it’s decreasing. This event is not at all over.”


    Quote from Reykjavik Grapevine:
    The basalt lava from the volcano at Geldingadalir comes from a deeper place than any that has come from volcanoes in that area for over seven millenia. It arrives from around 20 kilometres deep, meaning—as one scientist said—that this is like having an express connection to the centre of the earth.
    And this volcano could be here to stay. Scientists are saying now that it could be an effusive eruption, and historically some of those have gone on for decades.

    Quote from Natturuva:
    The magma streams steadily up through the vents in Geldingadalir and there are no obvious signs that it is diminishing. As in previous days, the lava river runs from the vents, first to the northwest, then swinging southward towards the lava stream in southern sector of Geldingadalir. Two surface breakouts have formed from the lava river, flowing on the lava surface to the northeast. Lava also appears to be ponding in the area northeast of the Norðri (Northy) and, occasionally, local boiling events take place through the surface crust. One such event took place in the morning of the 1st April 2021 right before 7 am. The vents also appear to be feeding lava in a closed pathway (i.e., lava tube), judging from faint degassing paths in the region, feeding an active flow front halfway between Suðri (Southy) and the southern terminus of the lava flow field. The main change in the eruption appears to be at the vents. The intensity of activity in Norðri (Northy) seems to have increased, where semi-continuous bubble boiling maintains a steady gas and lava jetting reaching 10-15 m into the air. Good portion of the splatter (i.e., spatter), lands in and merges with the lava river that is steadily discharged from the vent. Possibly this may evolve into steady lava fountaining and formation of fountain-fed lavas. At the same time, the intensity appears to have diminished somewhat in Suðri (Southy). The level of the lava in the crater is high, the vent-opening seems narrower, and the rims somewhat higher. Such development is typical for low-intensity (weak) explosive activity – the explosions do not have the power to disperse the eruptive products and conversely, they pile up around the vent. A steady stream of lava pours out of Suðri (Southy) and it is noticeable that its exit point stands significantly higher than the lava exit point from Norðri (Northy)

    HUGE LAVA FLOWS ! A New Huge Lava Eruption in Iceland. Geldingadalur Volcano Eruption 2021 May. More vents has joined, at the eruption site in Geldingadalur, forming a new huge vent. The new opening has an increased activity since last days and is bursting huge splashes of lava into the air, reaching hundreds of meters. The new crater has an atipic behaviour because it has moments when it is dormant, followed by instant huge explosions and torrents of lava flow. In the area, it is most likely that more fissures will open without notice with sudden lava flow. Huge gas acumulation makes the site a very dangerous place.

  • ICELANDIC VOLCANO ERUPTION 4K - Flying through the lava

    4:11

    After weeks of thousands of earthquakes on the peninsula of Reykjanes in Iceland on March 19th 2021 the ground opened up and the lava reached the surface. The volcano of GELDINGADALIR at the FAGRADALSFJALLI was born. Right after I heard from the eruption I flew to Iceland waited for the end of my quarantine and then I spent several days and nights at the volcano. It was such an incredible adventure. Every day the volcano looked completely different.

    Spelling mistake: Sorry for the embarrassing misspelling on the 3rd title (it's way to the surface) - Youtube don't let me exchange the video, so please just overlook it ;-)
    Volcano name - Also I need to say that the volcano I filmed has no name yet. It's located in the valley of Geldingadalir close to the mountain Fagradalsfjall - it's a bit tricky to name the movie without an official volcano name. :-)

    For this footage I brought 3 Mavic 2 Pro drones with me. One was „sacrificed“ for the very close up shots. As those flights through the lava spray were pure luck and the drones records the footage internally I recorded the screen of my remote control that in case of loosing it I would at least have the final shots saved on my mobile phone. But this lucky bee survived to the very end. The drone is completely melted from the outside and there are so many malfunctions and errors that it’s funny to fly - BUT it still flies and captures photos and videos.

Any use without a license for commercial or non-commercial/private use will be prosecuted by the lawyers team of photoclaim.

  • 17 Days, 60 Minutes - Volcanic Eruption in Geldingadalir Iceland - Time-Lapse

    1:2:21

    This time-lapse video spans around 17 days in 60 minutes of the volcanic eruption in Geldingadalir on the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland. From 20.03.2021 GMT12:00 to the first 6 hours from when the new fissures opened up 03.05.2021 GMT18:00.

    Please feel free to adjust the speed.
    More information can be seen at the end of the video 01:00:54

    The video was made from the Icelandic National Broadcasting Services live stream of the volcanic eruption in Geldingadalir. The eruption started in the evening of March 19th and continues to the making of this video. It is expected to last for quite some time, weeks, months, years and even decades. It can´t be said for certain at this time.

    The volcano had been spewing out around 5.7 cubic meters per second (m3/s) of hot lava, around 5 million cubic meters every day. The 1.220-1.240°C (2.228-2.264F) hot lava is the hottest to ever have been measured in Iceland. The lava has a chemical signature of a deep origin and the volcano is therefore suspected to be feed by a large reservoir of molten lava at depth of about 17-20km (10.5-12.5 miles).

    A new chapter in this saga of volcanic eruptions on the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland:
    The activity in the craters in Geldingadalir has decreased quite a bit but the new fissures are very active. First measurements show that the total amount of lava flow in Geldingadalir (3m*37s) and on Fagradalsfjall (7m*3/s) combined is suspected to be around 10 m*3/s and has therefore grown in intensity. The lava from the new fissures is now flowing in a long river down into Meradalir, east of the fissures.

    The eruption is in an area which is not inhabited by people so no infrastructure is in danger so far.

    Thanks for the love and support threw all of these videos. It has really been an encouragement to keep this work going.

    Please subscribe to stay informed of the latest updates at the eruption site.

    This Iceland volcano eruption is a live feed from the newly named Geldingadalir volcano located in Fagradalsfjall on the Reykjanes Peninsula. The glow from the lava can be seen from the outskirts of Reykjavik, Iceland's capital, just 32km (20 miles) north of the eruption. The eruption of the Geldingadalir volcano started on March 19, 2021, after being dormant for almost 6,000 years. It is the first active volcano in the area in about 800 years. A new fissure opened on April 5th near the initial eruption site. The length of the fissure is estimated to be 200m and the middle of the fissure is approx. 1km NE of the eruption site. The lava flows toward Merardalir, east of the new fissure. The lava is thin-flowing, flows in a long and narrow lava river east of Merardalur, lava fields already beginning to form. On April 7th, a third fissure opened up between the existing two fissures. Lava from this one is flowing west towards the original eruption.

The first eruption started in the evening of March 19th and continues to the making of this video. The second fissure opened up on April 5th at GMT12:00 noon. The volcanic activity in the area is expected to last for quite some time, weeks, months, years and even decades.

    The volcano had been spewing out around 5.7 cubic meters per second (m3/s) of hot lava, around 5 million cubic meters every day. The 1.220-1.240°C (2.228-2.264F) hot lava is the hottest to ever have been measured in Iceland. The lava has a chemical signature of a deep origin and the volcano is therefore suspected to be feed by a large reservoir of molten lava at depth of about 17-20km (10.5-12.5 miles).

    The activity in the craters in Geldingadalir has decreased quite a bit but the new fissures are very active. Measurements show that the total amount of lava flow in Geldingadalir and on Fagradalsfjall combined is suspected to be around 5-6 m*3/s and is therefore around the same as before in Gledingadalir alone. The lava from the new fissures is now flowing in a long river down into Meradalir, east of the fissures.

    The eruption is in an area which is not inhabited by people so no infrastructure is in danger so far.

    I already had all the material ready after my 60 minute long video so I decided to make a shorter version with a little more material from the new fissures added. Hope you enjoy.

  • Snowstorm at the Volcano - No Music - Geldingadalur/Meradalir Eruption in Iceland 2021 - 4K

    3:19

    Footage captured April 7, 2021.

    Sometimes the weather is pretty hostile up at the volcano, and I this video was made to display at least one day of that. With strong winds and snow during most of the day, the experience up there was very different than other days, and made it hard to record sounds from the eruption.

    This was also the first day after one of the remade walking paths, and with the snow it was a challenge to get there. Some of the footage is from early morning, as this time I also made an early entrance into the area, at 6am.

    I decided to leave the wind audio in the video, to show more of how it is up there in strong winds!

    Explosions Terrible: Iceland Fears Volcanic Eruption After Unprecedented 40,000 Earthquakes

    Iceland has witnessed an unusually high seismic activity and the Icelandic Meteorological Office has noted that nearly 40,000 earthquakes hit the region.

    Iceland has witnessed an unusually high seismic activity and the Icelandic Meteorological Office has noted that nearly 40,000 earthquakes hit the region in a period of 20 days. Iceland sits on a tectonic plate boundary that continually splits apart and it also pushes North America and Eurasia away from each other along the line of Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

    Hence, occasional stronger tremors are an inevitable part of living in an active seismic region. However, this time there appears to be a rumble under the ground. The region is now on a high alert as the increased seismic activity has led to a volcano threat.

    Terrible Explosion: Iceland volcano's lava geysers thrill visitors

    Iceland's Fagradalshraun volcano lies quiet for a spell before suddenly spewing red molten lava geysers high into the air, visible from the capital Reykjavik in an awe-inspiring display.

    The volcano, which sprang into life in mid-March in the Geldingadalir valley near Mount Fagradalsfjall, has drawn visitors from around the world, many venturing as close as possible to the safety perimeter set up to protect against sprays of red-hot rock.

    It's incredible to see, said Henrike Wappler, a German woman who lives in Iceland, standing with her daughter at the edge of the volcano. Marvelling at the power of the earth, she told AFP Saturday on her fourth visit to the site: I feel small so near to this power—but I'm not scared.

  • RVK Newscast #102: The Fire Geyser Now Reach 300 Metres

    15:41

    According to the newest findings by Icelandic geologists, the fire geyser’s lava fountain, or number five as it’s called, reaches 300 metres now. Whereas in the beginning, it was around 200-250 metres. Additionally, the volcano is now twice the size than it used to be. The lava coming out of the volcano is around 13 cubic metres per second, but used to be around 5-8 cubic metres per second. We also flew our drone over Meradalir in the twilights, and it’s safe to say that the valley is changing rapidly.

  • Timelapse Night 25-26th April 2021 - Volcanic Eruption in Geldingadalir / Meradalir, Iceland

    Volcanic eruptions began in Geldingadalur in Fagradalsfjall around a quarter to nine on Friday evening, March 19, 2021. At noon on April 5, new eruption fissures opened northeast of Geldingadalur and lava flows from them east down into Meradalur. There is no danger of settlement due to the eruption.

    -- News 10th April
    The fourth crack opened at the eruption sites in Geldingadalur last night, but it could first be seen on the web camera mbl.is. According to Einar Bessa Gestsson, a nature conservation specialist at the Icelandic Meteorological Office, the new fissure is halfway between the eruption fissures that opened this week.


    -- NEWS 5th April 2021
    A new fissure has opened just north of Geldingadalur, necessitating evacuation of the area.
    The fissure is at least 100 metres long, and is spraying lava into the air. This new fissure is as well far from populated areas and infrastructure, but no chances are being taken. As such, the eruption site is closed for the time being.
    “We can never know ahead of time how this volcano will behave,” volcanologist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson told RÚV. “There is a certain amount of pressure, and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of material coming to the surface, but it could lead to an increased eruption. But we see no signs that it’s decreasing. This event is not at all over.”


    Quote from Reykjavik Grapevine:
    The basalt lava from the volcano at Geldingadalir comes from a deeper place than any that has come from volcanoes in that area for over seven millenia. It arrives from around 20 kilometres deep, meaning—as one scientist said—that this is like having an express connection to the centre of the earth.
    And this volcano could be here to stay. Scientists are saying now that it could be an effusive eruption, and historically some of those have gone on for decades.

    Quote from Natturuva:
    The magma streams steadily up through the vents in Geldingadalir and there are no obvious signs that it is diminishing. As in previous days, the lava river runs from the vents, first to the northwest, then swinging southward towards the lava stream in southern sector of Geldingadalir. Two surface breakouts have formed from the lava river, flowing on the lava surface to the northeast. Lava also appears to be ponding in the area northeast of the Norðri (Northy) and, occasionally, local boiling events take place through the surface crust. One such event took place in the morning of the 1st April 2021 right before 7 am. The vents also appear to be feeding lava in a closed pathway (i.e., lava tube), judging from faint degassing paths in the region, feeding an active flow front halfway between Suðri (Southy) and the southern terminus of the lava flow field. The main change in the eruption appears to be at the vents. The intensity of activity in Norðri (Northy) seems to have increased, where semi-continuous bubble boiling maintains a steady gas and lava jetting reaching 10-15 m into the air. Good portion of the splatter (i.e., spatter), lands in and merges with the lava river that is steadily discharged from the vent. Possibly this may evolve into steady lava fountaining and formation of fountain-fed lavas. At the same time, the intensity appears to have diminished somewhat in Suðri (Southy). The level of the lava in the crater is high, the vent-opening seems narrower, and the rims somewhat higher. Such development is typical for low-intensity (weak) explosive activity – the explosions do not have the power to disperse the eruptive products and conversely, they pile up around the vent. A steady stream of lava pours out of Suðri (Southy) and it is noticeable that its exit point stands significantly higher than the lava exit point from Norðri (Northy)

    Why the cyclical nature of the volcano?
    Imagine one of those tipping bird /water balancing curiosities.
    The bird begins with its beak in a dish of water until enough water is ingested, altering the balance to make the bird tip back to expel the water. If we start with a empty vent, then add a constant flow of magma toward the surface into that vent. We get a slowly filling cone that increasingly is filled to a critical balance point of a magma pond holding back rising magma through gravity (effectively a molten plug).
    When we add the gas contained within the magma factor, we have magma trying to reach the surface while slowly off/gassing of So2, Co2 etc. as it rises. As the gas leaves the rising magma, some but not all of it expands and begins the sloshing effect as the gas percolates through the now lava. With this expansion and the continuing of the Magma rising, there comes a time when so much gas is held back that the critical balance collapses with the result of gas expelling in a flurry creating the fountain effect. All of the gas is expelled from the incoming magma at the same time it is ejected from the cone. The consistency of the magma and or the physical nature of the underground plumbing could either or in tandem create enough back pressure to hold back enough gasses to initiate the fountain.

    Icelandic Met Office
    The eruption in Fagradalsfjall continues through one main crater. The active crater is the fifth fissure opening that opened in the area on the 13th of April. Since the 27th of April, the volcanic activity was characterized by continuous lava fountains, while the activity changed at around midnight on the 2nd of May, and has since been showing pulsating behaviour. These pulses have intermittent active periods of 8-12 minutes, with 1-2 minutes of rest periods in between. The active pulses start with a strong fountain activity, with fountains reaching up to 100-150 m above ground level, and some even higher. These pulses are very apparent in the seismic tremor from seismic stations in a wide area around the eruption site.
    On Sunday morning, just after 6 am, the wind direction changed to slow easterly, and a few hours later smoke was detected in the southwest slopes of Geldingadalir. Possibly, hot pyroxene from the eruptive crater has been carried by the wind to the southwest of the lava field for about 300 meters distance and started a brush fire which can be seen on one of the two RÚV webcams.
    It is not clear what is causing these changes in volcanic activity, but changes in magma flow, the chemical composition of magma/gas, or possibly changes in the volcanic conduit cannot be ruled out.
    Considering these changes in activity, the size of the hazard area at the eruption site is being re-evaluated.

  • NEW FISSURE! Huge Lava Eruption in Iceland. Geldingadalur Volcano Eruption

    9:17

    New crack #3. Geldingadalur Volcano Eruption in Iceland 2021. 50% more lava flowing than before. The total flow of lava from all the craters of the eruption sites in and around Geldingadalur was about eight cubic meters per second in the past 24 hours. This is the results of geoscientists based on data obtained by flight at noon today. Aerial photographs were taken from Garðaflug's aircraft with the Hasselblad camera of the Icelandic Institute of Natural History and the images used to make a model of the lava flows volume in Geldingadalur, Meradalur and the fissure that formed at midnight on April 6. The flow, according to these measurements, is about 50% more than is has been for the most part until the new fissures opened up.

    Now that we have three eruption locations ongoing on or close to Fagradalsfjall, of which lava fields have merged, currently filling up Geldingadalir and Meradalir, with the potential of more fissures opening up and less chance of it becoming a shield volcano (although no ine knows), what Icelandic names do you find most appealing?

A third eruptive fissure opened yesterday at midnight. Located between the first and second eruption site, the new fissure vent started to erupt basaltic lava flows traveling mostly into the Geldingadalir valley, but also into the Meradalir valley where a new lava flow field is growing.

    Most lava is directed into a main channel at an estimated discharge rate of about 7 cubic m/s, which indicates very low viscosity. For comparison, the effusion rate from the growing cones around the first eruption site had been estimated to be about 5.5 cubic m/s.

  • First 6 Hours of the Volcanic Eruption on Fagradalsfjall in Iceland - Time-Lapse

    1:25

    This video is made from the Icelandic National Broadcasting Services live stream of the volcanic eruption on Fagradalsfjall on the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland. The video spans about 6 hours in 40 seconds. From 12:00 to 18:00.

    More information can be seen at the end of the video 00:45

    A new chapter has begun in this saga of volcanic eruptions on the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland.

    Two fissures opened up on Fagradalsfjall around 12:00GMT April 5, 2021 local time, their centre about 700 meters northeast of the initial eruption in Geldingadalir. The fissures were known by scientists and one scenario had predicted a possible eruption around this location. Scientist assume this to be the same magma as the one that has been feeding the fissure in Geldingadalir.

    The new fissures are estimated to be about 200m long combined and now have two distinct craters. The total amount of lava flow in Geldingadalir and on Fagradalsfjall combined is suspected to be around 10 m*3/s and has therefore grown in intensity. Better measurements will be done soon to find out if the flow of magma has increased permanently or if the magma has just found a new path to the surface. Activity in Geldingadalir has significantly decreased so indications are that the same amount of magma is coming up to the surface. The lava from the new fissures is now flowing in a long river into Meradalir, east of the fissures. Lava field had already started to form there, as seen on the live stream.
