Quiet period ongoing in geology, except in current erupting volcanoes

Everything seems to be quiet in Iceland and around the world. Nothing major is taking place in regards to earthquakes or volcano activity. So I do not have a lot to report on at current time. If this quiet period continues I am going to write about something in Iceland geological history that I know of. Nothing long, just short and as detailed as I can make it.

Last week volcano activity

Smithsonian/USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report

New Activity/Unrest: | Bezymianny, Central Kamchatka (Russia) | Cleveland, Chuginadak Island | Ijen, Eastern Java (Indonesia) | Iliamna, Southwestern Alaska | Lamongan, Eastern Java (Indonesia) | Marapi, Sumatra (Indonesia) | Nevado del Ruiz, Colombia | Tungurahua, Ecuador

Ongoing Activity: | Karymsky, Eastern Kamchatka (Russia) | Kilauea, Hawaii (USA) | Kizimen, Eastern Kamchatka (Russia) | Puyehue-Cordón Caulle, Central Chile | Sakura-jima, Kyushu | Santa María, Guatemala | Shiveluch, Central Kamchatka (Russia) | Villarrica, Central Chile

Rest of this report can be found here, http://www.volcano.si.edu/reports/usgs/

I hope to have more to write on soon. But it is hard to know for how long this quiet time is going to continue.

    It seams that the eruption in El Hierro might not be over yet.

    Quoted From Earthqhake-Report

    – ER reader Roland (see comments) has given us the lead to a report of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria showing the still erupting submarine El Hierro volcano with glowing lava seen floating at a depth of 70 meter.

    There was a 4.5 in Jan Mayen island region last night on EMSC –

    There is also indication of a 4.8 on the map at the same time, but no details.

    You helicorders on Katla and Hekla are quite active Jon, is this storm influence?

  3. Jack @ Finland says:

    Not so quiet…

    Small swarms at Tjörnes and at Katla. Especially Katla has picked up pace slightly during the last weeks.

  4. AK says:

  5. Blog post about the earthquake in Mexico is up!
