No Magma Near the Surface by Grindavík

“Earthquakes can be expected to continue in the area, and the strongest of them near Grindavík. “The most likely explanation for this activity is a magma intrusion at a depth of 3-5km (1.9-3.1mi) just west of Þorbjörn. Most often such activity concludes without an eruption,” the statement closes.

According to geophysicist Páll Einarsson, if an eruption were to occur, experts would most likely be able to warn authorities hours in advance.”

Enjoying a latte during my last few hours in Reykjavík before flying into Toronto to return home and start to plan which programs I’ll be applying to at the University of Reykjavík. I know I want to obtain my Masters degree but I have awhile before I will be ready for that, so I am thinking of studying Icelandic in the meantime. The program doesn’t begin until the fall and I would like to be there sooner but we will see where more research leads me!
