The new eruption in Holuhraun

September 1, 2014

31st August 2014 08:40 - Eruption in Holuhraun observed 05:15 Observation from scientists in the field (05:15): It appears that the eruptive fissure is longer than in the last eruption. It is extending north and south on the same fissure. The eruption is a very calm lava eruption and can hardly be seen on seismometers (almost no gosórói). Visual observation confirm it is calm, but continuous. The eruption is not affecting any of our treks and they are all being operated as normal.
