Iceland’s Katla volcano hit by 3.2 magnitude earthquake

September 1, 2011ICELAND – At 18:44 UTC a earthquake with the size ML 3.2 and the depth of 2.9 km did happen in Katla volcano caldera (this size is based on automatic data and is going to be subject to a change). The ML3.2 earthquake in Katla volcano. Copyright of this picture belongs to Iceland Met Office. Currently there is strong wind around Katla volcano. This strong wind is interfering with IMO SIL network around Katla. But so far no harmonic tremor has been detected after this earthquake. This earthquake appears to have be formed due to magma intrusion into the rock in Katla volcano caldera. It’s signature on my geophone shows that clearly. –Jonfr

  2. Wow, everything is active today. I’m having a tough time keeping up with you Alvin. And I have a feeling it’s not going to slow down anytime soon.

    Be blessed and Maranatha
