* IMO’s reviewed data is currently unavailable, for the sake of continuity I have used their preliminary data, edited to contain only events with over 90.01% quality. The map and graph above reflect this data, it is not final.
Daily status report 21 September 2014 – compiled by IMO (Icelandic Met Office) and IES (Institute of Earth Sciences)
The volcanic eruption in Holuhraun continues with similar rate as last few days. The eruption does not seem to be declining. The lava production continues with the same strength. The lava flow is now around the centre of the lava field, which is now around 37 square kilometres.
Scientists in the field estimate that around 90% of the SO2 gas coming from the eruption originates in the active craters and only 10% from the lava field. Scientists have also become aware of dead birds around the eruptions site.
The subsidence of the Bardarbunga caldera continues with same rate as before.
