Bardarbunga Subsidence Continues

The Bardarbunga subsidence continues steadily.  The rate of subsidence is approximately 0.5 meters every 36 hours.  As of the time this post is being written, the subsidence for the last 24 hours was approximately 0.5 meters.  Large quakes continue with a magnitude 5.1 quake occurring in the last hour or two.  The longer the subsidence continues the more likely the caldera will collapse.  Stay tuned for additional updates.

  • Subsidence appears to be more significant today. The data indicates that there has been approximately .75 meters of subsidence in the last 12 hours. How much longer is this going to last?

  • Momentary deviation recorded by GPS is all over the board right now. It is fluctuation as wildly as I’ve seen it. Does anyone know what is going on? Is it storming in Iceland right now? Is it windy? Or is this thing getting ready to collapse?
