Is Katla beginning to act up?

Conflicting maps

page delimiter


6 May 10 - Yesterday I wondered if Eyjafjallajökull might be a precursor to an eruption at nearby Katla volcano.
 

Map from: http://en.vedur.is/earthquakes-and-volcanism/earthquakes/myrdalsjokull/


Lo and behold, the first sign of seismic activity may have occurred.
I say may have occurred, because the website containing this map showed an earthquake beneath the
massive Myrdalsjokull glacier yesterday.

Katla lies buried beneath the Myrdalsjokull glacier, which, with ice measuring 550 yards thick, is one of Iceland's largest.

However, that was yesterday.

But today for some reason, the map has been changed and the earthquake symbol has been removed.

A Katla eruption would be 10 times stronger and shoot higher and larger plumes of ash into the air than its smaller neighbor.

History has proven that when the Eyjafjallajokull (also called Eyjafjoll) volcano erupts, Katla also erupts — but no one can predict how soon, or how explosively.

          If anyone knows what is really happening beneath the
         
Myrdalsjokull glacier, please let me know.

Threat of Larger Icelandic Eruption Looms

19 Apr 10 - Scientists fear the Eyjafjallajokull volcano could trigger an
eruption 10 times stronger at the nearby Katla volcano. The last three times
that Eyjafjallajokull erupted, so did Katla, shooting higher and larger plumes
of ash into the air than its smaller neighbor.
