Apologies: I had intended to post more about the ongoing activity at Eyjafjallajökull this weekend, but there hasn’t been time.
I hope to catch up with things in Iceland (and elsewhere) tomorrow, but in the meantime I recommend the comment thread at this post over at Eruptions – at the moment that’s where you can best find out what is happening at Eyjafjallajökull.* And of course the Iceland Meteorological Office page for earthquakes in the Mýrdalsjökull area is a mine of information. Overall and in brief the picture is that the earthquakes have become somewhat less frequent over the last 24 hours or so, but that ground inflation has continued, so magma is clearly still being injected into the volcano. The Icelandic authorities are taking the possibility of an eruption seriously and have been discussing civil defence preparations.
More here tomorrow, other commitments permitting.
* To be read with discrimination, obviously. It is a blog comment thread, and at ScienceBlogs, what’s more.
