Update on Fagradalsfjall - 18.11.2021

Since 18th of September no eruptive activity has been observed at Fagradalsfjall, but there are still small quantities of gas measured in the atmosphere. During the eruption a deflation signal was detected around Fagradalsfjall, most likely due to magma withdrawal from a deep reservoir which was feeding the eruption.

The flood in Skaftá is still ongoing but the discharge has lowered significantly.

The water level in Tungulækur, which is a groundwater stream from Eldhraun, continues to rise slightly, indicating that floodwater is still spreading through the lava. Gas pollution close to the edge of the Skaftá river remains a possibility.

Arctic cooperation

The Icelandic Meteorological Office cooperates with many agencies in related fields. With ongoing environmental changes, long term time-series are becoming increasingly important. These include time series of  weather-related factors, such as temperature, rainfall, air pressure and solar and cloud cover, time-series on  hydrology,  glaciology, sea-ice condition, earthquakes, floods, ice and sediment load in rivers. Such data from IMO is important, providing a benchmark for assessing ongoing changes in the Arctic region.
