This is something I have been monitoring for the last few days. Firstly there have been more than 1,500 small earthquakes in the area in the last few days. Also GPS has shown magma moving and in an upward direction at 2 points!

A powerf­ul volcano, Bárðarbunga, mig­ht erupt in the High­lands of Ice­land. The Icelandic Met Office has up­gra­ded its aviati­on al­ert status to orange, me­an­ing that a "volcano shows heig­htened or escalat­ing un­rest with increa­sed potential of erupti­on." Seismic acti­vity is of­ten the precursor of an erupti­on.

The orange alert is the second highest al­ert status. The next al­ert level, red, me­ans that an erupti­on is eit­her imm­in­ent or in progress. Bárðarbunga last erupted in 1996.

Accord­ing to the website of the Icelandic Met Office: "the in­ten­se seismic acti­vity that started on 16th of Aug­ust at Bárðarbunga pers­ists. Very strong indicati­ons of ongo­ing magma mo­vement, in conn­ecti­on with dyke intrusi­on, is corro­borated by GPS mea­surements. Th­ere are cur­rently two swarms: one to the E of Bárðarbunga caldera and one at the edge of Dyngju­jök­ull just E of Kistu­fell. At 2.37 am on the 18th a strong eart­hqua­ke (M4) was loca­ted in the Kistu­fell sw­arm.

CODE ORANGE: The Risk Of An 'Explosive Subglacial Eruption' In Iceland Just Went Up

Lorcan Roche Kelly at Agenda Research tipped us off to the news that the Icelandic government on Monday changed the status of Bardarbunga, a volcano in Iceland located under Europe's largest glacier, to "orange," meaning there is a heightened risk of eruption and ash cloud.

A report from Reuters on Monday noted that this is the second-highest risk level on the government's five-level risk scale.

Iceland Prepares for Volcanic Eruption as Tremors Persist

Iceland’s Civil Protection Agency has registered hundreds of earthquakes since midnight yesterday at the site of one of its biggest volcanoes as the island braces itself for a possible eruption.

“There is a very strong indication of magma movement east of Bardarbunga caldera,” the Reykjavik-based agency said in a statement late yesterday. Around 800 earthquakes have been observed in the area since midnight Aug. 18, with the strongest one measuring 4.5 on the Richter scale, the agency said.
