Hi all

It appears that Katla volcano is preparing an eruption. On the 8th April
there was a 10 min long tremor detected in the volcano. One of the main
glacier rivers from the Myrdalsjokull glacier has been dry since mid
January. So the evidence for an coming eruption are mounting.

The tremor can be seen here.

I am going to setup a geophone near Hekla volcano in June, so if there is
going to be an eruption in Katla it is going to appear good on that
station too.

I've post new information on this when I know more.

Jón Frímann.
