Daily status report 03 September 2014 – compiled by IMO (Icelandic Met Office) and IES (Institute of Earth Scienses)
The volcanic eruption continues on Holuhraun; the main path for lava is to the east-north-east.
At 08:00 UTC today the total area of the lava flow was estimated at 7.2 km2.
There have been no observations of ash-fall. Ash production is almost negligible.
GPS measurements show that the volume of the dyke intrusion has increased since the beginning of the eruption; this signifies that more magma is entering the dyke than is being erupted.
Recent radar images show a 0.5 – 1 km wide depression that has formed both in front of and beneath Dyngjujökull. Signs of the depression extend about 2 km into the ice margin. The increasing thickness of the glacier decreases the visual extent of fracturing associated with the depression, so it is likely that the area extends further beneath Dyngjujökull.
