Happy Christmas Jon, and everyone here. It has been an eventful year, and thanks to you all for all the shared moments.
just thought I’d mention this, not sure how close to any ‘interesting’ or unstable features these planned geothermal holes are – but I guess we can expect more hengill style earthquake swarms once they are up and running.
Seems they want to eventually build a power plant, wonder if an aluminium smelting plant will end being nearby?
Hmm, end up being nearby sounds much better!

Alcoa Drops Plans for Smelter in North Iceland

German Silicon Metal Producer Eyes North Iceland
I wonder what an ‘acceptable’ price was for the energy? We have plans going on for a 3rd nuclear power plant in Somerset!
There is a CME which will hit the earth on Dec. 28, 2011 at UTC 08:00.
The best and only effect on Earth will be Aurora displays.
Should be some good displays in Iceland on 28th, weather permitting!
There was a nice display of Nacreous clouds this morning all over North Iceland.
Some pictures from Siglufjordur
It is unusually cold in the stratosphere .
Since the start of winter 2010, to March 2011, there has been a 40 percent loss in the ozone layer over the Arctic
Some information about the ozone layer.
I have been wondering if this has to do with increased volcanic activity in Iceland.
I think volcanoes emit various types of gasses for a while before, during and after eruptions.
It would not surprise me if the cold snap of 1918 was a part of the build up to a eruption later that year.
This fast erosion of the ozone lair can not be man made, as there is a decrease in the output of ozone destructive material, the size and speed of the erosion would suggest some other factor.
I’ve seen nacreous clouds a few times on my winter trips to Northern Sweden, once you have seen them you never forget it!
Hengill seems to have a few not so shallow quakes and without human activities. Is this anything worth looking at?
I wouldn’t suppose that this is without human influence. I think these are the places of boreholes for (the northeastern ones) the p0wer station of Nesjavellir resp. (the southwestern ones) Hellisheidi power station.
If I remember correctly the EQs from fracking should be in the region of the 2km depth. So most of today’s EQs, if I am correct, are from natural events.
Thank you for your interesting blog! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. Here’s a restful song for the “third day of Christmas”… http://www.merry-christmas.com/christmas-music/free-music/gallagher/b.gallagher.angels.heard.high.mp3
New blog post is finally up!
I was hoping to see some discussion about the nice Camembert style skate/shark
Yumm ,Skate n Skrumm. My grandfather a Newfoundlander would surely have some interesting recipies sourced in organisms originating on the ocean floor.
Iceland Christmas traditions are very interesting, you may want to read about them. Merry Christmas!
