In Iceland wakes another vulkan.Video

Group Icelandic geologists said that the country has a risk of a new eruption, reported. Members of the group studied earthquakes around Bardarbunga (Bardarbunga), the second largest volcano in Iceland. Now Pall Einarsson (Pall Einarsson), a professor of geophysics at the University of Iceland (University of Iceland), believes that the volcano shows signs of activity, which may constitute sufficient cause for worry.

He said that the lack of seismographic measurements means that scientists can not accurately determine the depth and exact location of frequent ground movements. "This is the most seismically active area of the country. There is no doubt that at this point the quantity of lava, and the activity of the last few days only proves it. We need more accurate measurements as underground movements occur in that part of the country is covered by glaciers, "- said in an interview with Einarsson local television.


Bardarbunga last volcanic eruption was recorded in 1910. And most major eruption of the volcano scientists refer to 1477, when there was a release of large amounts of volcanic ash, accompanied by a splash of the largest amounts of lava in the last 10 thousand years.


Recall that in April-May last year, the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull volcano (Eyjafjallajokull), Iceland, has been called a major aviation crisis. Because of this eruption European aviation experienced a real collapse of flights over Europe became impossible because of stones and shards of glass contained in volcanic emissions could damage aircraft engines.


There was also a fear that could awaken after Eyjafjallajökull volcano Katla, located a few kilometers to the east. In the past, when the Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted, and Katla has intensified, so volcanologists closely followed the last, waiting adverse events. However, while the fears seem unfounded, Katla continues to doze.


And recently, in Kamchatka, Russia, volcano awoke Kizimen. Column of volcanic ash erupting from the vent of the volcano, reaching a height of 10 km. Ash fall on the major cities, including Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Eruption have assigned "code red", meaning that the risk is evaluated highly.
