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.

 eruptions

Don’t forget that the Volcano World Cup from ERUPTIONS blog is still going on. Now onto Group H. My previous post about this super fun take on a new competition involving the 2014 World Cup countries.

ERUPTIONS blog, by Erik Klemetti, at wired.com has put together an informative and interactive group of posts that pit volcanoes of the world against each other (from countries in the actual 2014 FIFA World Cup) . Check out the posts and start voting for the 2014 Volcano World Cup winner!!

What is the Volcano World Cup? I’m going to take each of the participating countries in the real World Cup and have all of you vote on which are the most volcanically excellent. It will be set up exactly the same as the World Cup – group stage, round of 16, quarter-, semi- and finals – except it will be your votes that move nations forward.

For Groups B, C, etc of the Volcano World Cup, go to ERUPTIONS here
