The team of Warm Arctic, an icelandic company spezializing in geothermal reservoir engineering, has pictured dozens of cracks in the ground, where an earthquake swarm is currently hitting the Reykjanes Peninsula…

The present geological context and history

Experts believe a volcanic eruption could take place in the Reykjanes Peninsula.

A large volume of magma is accumulating in this area of Iceland since about a year, causing the soil to lift by several centimeters and triggering numerous seismic swarms, getting always stronger.

Since February 24, the situation has completely degenerated. Over 22,000 earthquakes have been recorded… Volcanic tremors too, prompting officials to raise the alert level of the Krysuvik volcano from green to orange overnight.

Yesterday, a M5.7 and 6 M4is hit the region within the same hour… InSAR reveals ongoing dike formation in Fagradalsfjall on the Reykjanes peninsula.

Now, cracks have been found in the Thorbjorn area, a small volcanic building formed during a single eruptive event that took place around 24,000 years ago. That exact same volcano made the headlines last year because it was the center of the first crustal deformations (caused rising magma).

These fractures were observed near the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal area and one of Iceland’s most visited tourist attractions. Its water comes from the nearby Svartsengi geothermal plant, or better said, the volcanic system located west of Krysuvik.

Thorbjorn and Krysuvik haven’t erupted for centuries. So there’s lot of magma ready to blow and flow!

Meanwhile some argue the volcanoes will not erupt:

What’s your opinion?

Did you know that giant cracks are also fissuring the desert of Arizona?

  1. We just entered a Grand Solar Minimum much like the Maunder Minimum of 1645 to 1715. Dr Valentina Zharkova has said the Sun’s magnetism is reduced during a GSM. This allows more cosmic rays (nuclear particles from distant stars) to enter our atmosphere. Some of the particles increase cloud cover and lead to more rain, hail and snow. Some of the particles strike the earth and energize volcanoes and earthquakes. In 1709 3 volcanoes erupted in Europe. They sent up so much ash into the atmosphere that sunlight was partially blocked. It cause the Big Freeze of 1709. The ground for the meter (nearly 40 inches) was frozen. It spiked food prices 600%. Iceland in the past has had massive starvation due to volcanoes so this is a sore subject for them. The world has 7 billion more people now than in 1709.

  2. 1968 I was stationed Naval Communications Station Keflavik for a year. Daily tremors and quakes were the norm. Not called the land of fire and ice for no reason. The people are Iceland’s greatest resource.

  3. I have seen plenty of dykes my day but no magma was around them. One of my girlfriends had a daughter who was one. Most of her friends were dykes also. Never saw any magma around them, either.

  4. Pretty amazing what is going on all over the world. There seems to be shaking of the earth everywhere in 2021 so far. Keep looking up as our redemption draws neigh!
