Hi John

There has not been a earthquake swarm in past three weeks since i got
the geophone (not large anyway), but they are common here in Iceland.
Most of them happen in the Tjörnes Fracture Zone (TFZ), but they are
also common on the Reykjanes ridge and the Reykjanes it self (where
Reykjavik is located) and other locations in Iceland on the volcano
ridge. Sometimes earthquakes that go to 5mb happen. But most common are
earthquakes in the range of 3 - 4,9Ml. I am speaking of earthquake
swarms with hundreds of earthquakes pr hour and sometimes thousunds of
earthquakes pr hour and more then a dosent of earthquakes that rech 3 -
4Ml in size, sometims more.

That has not happened, but when it happens my online graphs are going to
look quite inresting. :-)
