Back in November 2009 we reported (thanks to Boris Behncke) that there was significant earthquake activity along the Reykjanes Ridge south-west of Iceland. Well, it seems to be happening again (and again, thanks to Boris for the tip-off). The above detail of the earthquake activity map at the Iceland Meteorological Office website shows the recorded quakes up to 14:35 UTC today; the largest quakes have been between magnitudes 3 and 4. This is a volcanically-active area (part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge System) and it’s worth keeping an eye on what happens there.
UPDATE 19 February 2010. Erik has posted a very informative piece on the Reykjanes Ridge quakes at Eruptions.
