Seismic sensors In Iceland record 1300 tremors in the month of November

December 17, 2011 ICELANDThe Icelandic Meteorological Office’s SIL earthquake monitoring system picked up approximately 1,300 tremors in Iceland this past November, the largest of which measured 3.5 on the Richter scale and hit the Katla caldera on November 8. Most of the earthquakes last month had their epicenter below the Mýrdalsjökull icecap, which covers the volcano Katla, and by Húsmúli on Hellisheiði where Reykjavík Energy is based; the seismic activity there is caused by geothermal boreholes, Morgunblaðið reports. A series of minor earthquakes occurred on Hellisheiði on Monday night this week. Around 20 tremors were picked up by sensors, the largest of which was close to two points on the Richter scale. Otherwise, Hellisheiði has been quiet lately. –Iceland Review

    Iceland is a beautiful place. I’ve been there but I’ve seen some great photos.
    Iceland is getting ready to have a bad day.

      In 2010, Iceland let out a puff of ashes that wreaked havoc on air traffic, as far as Prague.
      Back in 1786, the Laki volcano erupted. That year, mortality rates actually DOUBLED in some places of France and England because of the fumes and the impact on the weather. It is documented. in 1789, the French Revolution tumbled the monarchy. Coincidence ? Methinks no.
      I also stumbled on this, a couple days back :
      The text is in French, and the videos have been partially translated as well, sorry. But you shoud be able to get data in English if you google for information on :the Krakatoa volcano, a possible mega-eruption in year 535, A.C. , historian David Keys (and his book “Catastrophe”). Merry christmas 😉
