Title: Volcanos Currently: Flowing Lava Can Be Seen From Highway in Iceland ...
Post by: GamesPoet on March 26, 2021, 01:03:28 PM
Icelanders seem to be quite interested in hiking up to the location where a volcano has erupted in Geldingadalur, Iceland.

Here is a brief video giving some interesting perspective of what was happening on Tuesday ...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5f-WIW9HO30

Here is a live feed ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkkuxbZAq30

It seems the three openings that were present and close to each other when the volcano strated a few days ago now combined into one, and the mountain of cooling lava seems to be growing higher.

The first video says that over a thousand people hiked up into the area on Wednesday, and some of the hikers weren't really prepared for the journey up into the location of the volcano with folks being picked up by officials flying helicopters into the area.

And here is the Pacaya Volcano in Guatamela that has been continually erupting for the last few weeks ...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ez7Kg2cXv-A

This one seems to be mostly smoke and ash as of this post.  However, it isn't new, and has erupted 23 times since the Spanish conquests in the 1500s, and geologists say it has been active for the last 23,000 years.

There are shots showing the ash falling in streets, and one at about 5 minutes and 30 secoinds showing a guy sweeping an inch of ash off the sidewalk.

Four new brief videos ...

This one shows picture of the new fissure that has opened up, which is increasing the flow of lava from this location ...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQBel_ObVWc

This second one uses a bit of time lapse photography to show the new fissure expanding, is a bit more news oriented, and shows how the new fissure is having lava flow towards and into another valley as it moves down hill in the direction of the ocean ...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSO0bE5zXxo

This third one is probably a drone flying from the edge of the flow in a valley away from the openings, and then takes you up towards the craters which shows the length of the fissures that have opened ...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jN8antDmcoA

This fourth one is a bit more sensationalized with the sped up photography ...

Here is some information, a map, and a 3D map of the volcano in Iceland before the fissure that opened up yesterday happened ...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxEdH27WUZg

The map shows the access road to the south, plus it looks like a pair of trails, and the projected paths that the lava chamber below the earth's surface has sufficient lava in it to continue to makes it's flow down hill to the ocean.  This volcano area hasn't erupted in approximately 800 years, and there are scientists that are thinking this could very well get to the ocean, and could be flowing for a lengthy time maybe 10 to 15 years is one projection that was made.

Post by: GamesPoet on April 07, 2021, 06:00:15 PM
The new fissure seems to have more strength behind it than the first volcano, and the first seems to have currently dulled considerably.  The new fissure in essence has turned into a higher part of this overall volcano.  Such fissure was expected by scientists, yet not as far apart as these two have developed.

Also, the following link is from today, and shows how much more lava has now flowed down inot another valley and the route it is taking together, all from the ground level viewpoint ...

Have you been following this? It's been an amazing ride so far.  Ya never know when something new happens.  Sometimes the volume of lava flowing dies down, smoke arises, and then the lava picks back up.  Today the cameras showed snow in Iceland, that never happens there ... lol, and in the background of the filming with the volcanoes spitting up more lava.

Reports are saying that residents of the island are fleeing their homes, and some are being evacuated from the island.  It was also reported that a dust clown was as high as 20,000 feet, and ash had fallen on some of the villages near the volcano.

Not sure why I am so fascinated with the volcano in Iceland.

It is good that it doesn't seem to be threatening a small town or village like so many others do across the globe.  It feels good to have it in the wilderness, so to speak, although I understand that the gases coming from it can pass over communities in Iceland, including the capital.

Anyway ... here is a video that shows the four areas that have opened up from a considerable distance, and it shows a plane landing in the area ...

Also, there are reports from scientists that seem to suggest there are other areas near buy on this peninsula in Iceland that could also start erupting as the plates continue to slowly separate, including potentially under the capital.

It has been reported today that the volcano in Iceland currently has only one crater with flowing lava, down from the nine craters of 2 weeks ago.  Evidently the pressure is the same causing the flow to be faster.  And apparently there is another fissure developing very near by.

Post by: GamesPoet on April 27, 2021, 11:34:45 PM
The one crater flowing lava was sending it 40 to 50 meters into the air today.  An the recent map of the area is now showing that the southern flow is close to meeting up with the northern flow, and this will cut off access to one of the 24 hour cameras.  It seems the lava will likely reach the ocean faster than originally speculated.

The earth retaining as of May 18th to slow the advance of the lava towards the main highway and the sea from the most southerly flow of lava so far.  Apparently they are hoping to have the lava flow go in a different route to the ocean, and further to the east of this location shown in the video ...

On a side note: volcanic activity is generally inversely correlated with sun activity: lower in periods of prolonged maxima of solar activity and higher in periods of prolonged solar minima. Since 2019/2020, we have entered such a period of prolonged solar minima, which some believe may last until 2050.

The trail to the closest mountain to the volcano is close to being cutoff by the lava that is flowing, and so it will be harder to get as close to it as before, although it has gotten so large that it can still be viewed well from a mountain side further back ...

Video taken from the southerly end of lowest valley where lava is flowing towards the ocean ...

... it is interesting to see how the lava is now shaping the sides of this valley as it takes a more southerly route down the steep side, and then along the edge of the valley slowing changing its structure and shape.

This is geology in motion starting with the original earthquake below the surface, which in turn opened up a crack/path for the magma to rise to the surface, creating the initial craters and flows, and then now with only one large crater the  magma continues to flow out over the surface of the earth and towards the ocean where it will change the shape of the land there as well.

The lava flow has created a new path south into the lower valley near where it's been making a route to the road before reaching the ocean, and the new route is seen making the connection at about m1 minute and 50 seconds into this video ...

This is a video from originally a live, hour and a half recording, and after an hour, the guy is seeking out the camera on a rocky hill that is a live feed being provided by Iceland to view the approach of the lava towards the ocean, although above where the parking lot is located ...

... the part where he look s back towards the lava flow from the postiion of the live feed camera gives quite the perspective of what the valley looks like and how high the mountains are near by.

Flowing lava can now be seen from the highway in Iceland ...

It probably isn't long before the lava reaches the highway, and keeps it from being driven on through the area.  Folks will eventually need to come from one way or the other to hike and explore and see the volcano with its activity.
