Iceland’s Largest Active Volcano Is Showing Signs Of Eruption: Now In ‘Uncertainty Phase’

The largest volcano in Iceland is showing scientists signs that it could erupt. It’s now under close surveillance after centuries of slumber.

The Icelandic Met Office has received reports of the surrounding area smelling of sulfur, while geothermal water has been released from the volcano into a river on the surrounding glacier, reports Iceland MagazineScientists believe that this geothermal water caused a section of the volcano to collapse, producing a new caldera.

The new caldera (a basin-shaped volcanic depression) has been discovered by scientists in Öræfajökull. Because of all of these unusual events, Iceland’s Civil Protection Agency has declared an uncertainty phase. That’s basically a warning that there may be a threat in the near future. At the same time, the Met Office has issued a yellow warning.

While earth scientists studying the volcano are reluctant to give any sort of timeframe for an eruption – as always, eruptions of even active volcanoes are notoriously impossible to predict – there has been considerable geothermal heat measured at the caldera, and the release of gases has been detected. As such, nothing is being ruled out.

Bryndís Ýr Gísladóttir, natural resource specialist at the Met Office, told newspaper Morgunbladid: “We issued a yellow warning for security reasons because we actually don’t know that much about Öræfajökull glacier, nor how it behaves because its last eruption occurred in 1727, and 1362 before that.”

According to the Independent,  Öræfajökull features Iceland’s highest peak and is thought to be one of the most powerful volcanoes in Europe. It is responsible for the country’s second deadliest eruption after a steam blast in 1362 deposited 10 cubic kilometers of debris across farmland and killed all inhabitants across dozens of farms.

Although still sparsely populated, the region can attract thousands of tourists at the height of the holiday season. The Icelandic Civil Protection Agency estimates there would only be a 20-minute warning before an eruption, however, adding to the danger of this volcano’s recent activity.

    The volcano gods appeared in a dream to me and told me what they wanted to not erupt. Throw George Soros, Hillary, and some NFL football players(who kneel for the anthem). Otherwise, Iceland is toast!

      You forgot Al Franken, Brian. Unless he finds some more “missing” votes in a car trunk, Greenland also goes!!!

      “For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear: For a servant when he reigneth; and a fool when he is filled with meat; For an odious woman when she is married; and an handmaid that is heir to her mistress.”
      — from Prov 30

      “By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.”
      — from Hos 4

      I have physically looked-at coordinates, where earthquakes were measured, learned about air quality, plants, animals, and geology. Everyone is sitting on top of volcanism, always.

      If you have a fat bird and something clean to drink, acknowledge that, at least, we are still alive.

      You throw any of those people into an active volcano Brian and you’d be guaranteeing an eruption. I figure Mother Earth would puke about the same as any man would had they to wake up next to the Hildabeast. I remember a term from youth “coyote ugly”. When a girl was so damned horrid looking a guy’d rather chew his arm off at the shoulder than wake her if he woke up to the creature sleeping on his arm. Iceland needs virgins. ‘Course, those are most likely in pretty rare supply. It gets cold there in Iceland.

    This is RIGHT near Vatnajokull, whose glacier I have stood on (“jokull” means glacier, vatna means water). Interestingly, they KNOW for a fact, and have info posted at the national park there, Skaftafell, that during the MWP (Medieval Warm Period) there were FORTY functioning Viking farms around 1000 AD, that are TODAY buried under the glacier there. I.e., it was WARMER around 1000 AD than today. Must have been all those Viking long boat SUVs they were driving around. The Skaftafell Park exhibits also state the glacier is disgorging bits of trees and vegetation. I.e., it had been warmer, enough to grow trees and vegetation, and is now disgorging them.

    Truth is, we are just coming out of the LIA (Little Ice Age) still, the nadir of which was 200 years ago, so OF COURSE it is warmer, as the LIA was the coldest it had been in perhaps thousands of years. In fact, a study by Kegwin on marine radioisotopes in the Sargasso Sea, published in Nature, shows that while we are above the nadirs of the 1800s LIA **** we are STILL below the 3,000 year average temp!*** Go ask your local BIG GREEN MONEY scam artist about that. The Archeological Survey of Canada also says the treeline was about 200 km north of where it is today during the LIA, and the Vikings in Greenland grew vegetables and some crops around 1000 AD – too cold to do that today, outside of some specialized equipment, techniques etc.

    Incidentally, for those of you interested, Dr. Tim Ball has a pix of a picea glauca (white spruce) that was growing on the Tuktoyaktuk peninsula, ***100 km NORTH today’s treeline*** about 5,000 years ago, ***when it was WARMER than today**** Radiocarbon date was 4940 ±140 years Before Present (BP), which was featured in Hubert Lamb’s classic work Climate, Present, Past and Future. See Dr. Ball’s site at http://drtimball.com/2012/sensationalist-and-distorted-climate-stories-increase-as-climate-science-failures-exposed/ As noted, the Archeological Society of Canada says the treeline was 200 km NORTH of today during the Medieval Warm Period (MWP). There was also the Roman Warm Period, and the Minoan Warm Period, but let’s not have our leftist BIG GREEN MONEY warmers’ heads explode with too many FACTS!

    Then ask your local BIG GREEN MONEY scam artist HOW that tree stump up in Canada’s Arctic got there. They will resort to obfuscation, fabrications and even outright lies, similar to what lead global warmer Ken Trenberth at East Anglia Univ in the UK did, when he was exposed in the ClimateGate leaks a few years ago, telling his fellow scientists to “hide the decline” in temperatures. Yep… hide the FACTS. And that passes for leftist “science” today.

  5. Testament of Solomon :

    “I therefore, having heard this, glorified the Lord God, and again I questioned the demon, saying: “Tell me how ye can ascend into heaven, being demons, and amidst the stars and holy angels intermingle.” And he answered: “Just as things are fulfilled in heaven, so also on earth (are fulfilled) the types1 of all of them. For there are principalities, authorities, world-rulers2, and we demons fly about in the air; and we hear the voices of the heavenly beings, and survey all the powers. And as having no ground (basis) on which to alight and rest, we lose strength and fall off like leaves from trees. And men seeing us imagine that the stars are falling from heaven. But it is not really so, O king; but we fall because of our weakness, and because we have nowhere anything to lay hold of; and so we fall down like lightnings3 in the depth of night and suddenly. And we set cities in flames and fire the fields. For the stars have firm foundations in the heavens like the sun and the moon.”

    Test- If President Trump can pardon turkeys on Thanksgiving, we might do the same. In today’s moral climate, the virgins might have to be ten years old, so I don’t like that idea. Perhaps we could collect a whole lot of marijuana and throw that into the volcano. That should mellow the volcano gods out and stop the eruption. With any luck, it should attract all the potheads in iceland into jumping in!
