Not far from Hveragerði, Iceland

Keeping up my observations on matters seismic and volcanic in Iceland, this little swarm jumped off the screen at me this morning. The depth of the tremors is mostly around the 2-9Km mark and behaving a bit like a coffee percolator on the boil. Personally, I think the Gods of the Icelandic underworld have gotten a bit bored with the decor and are moving the furniture around down there.

For those who want to take a visual of the area, most of the activity seems to be almost directly and to the East under two Highway webcams (East and West Facing, not that there's much to see apart from ice and traffic) situated on the Reykjavik to Hveragerði road. Perhaps slightly to the north between the Hellisheiði geothermal facility and the big waterfall at Gullfoss.
