Iceland volcano Bardarbunga showing increased seismic activity, possible signs of eruption

Bardarbunga

Looks like another icelandic volcano might becoming more active in our near future. Here is the news article on independent.ie that describes the recent increase in seismic activity. Hopefully if Bardarbunga does erupt, it won’t cause as many travel headaches as the previous Icelandic volcano to erupt, Eyjafjallajokull.

The Icelandic Meteorological Office declared an orange aviation alert (the second highest on its five-grade scale) and confirmed that the risk of an eruption had increased yesterday.

Bardarbunga is Iceland’s largest volcanic system, located under the ice cap of the Vatnajokull glacier in the southwest of Iceland. It is in a different range to Eyjafjallajokull.
