The volcanic eruption in Holuhraun continues with similar intensity as it has for the last two weeks. Lava continues to flow out of the lava lake in the crater to the east-southeast. The lava field now measures approximately 72 square km (28 square miles).

The new lava is now twice the size of Mývatn in Northeast Iceland, the country’s fourth largest lake, RÚV reports.

Seismic activity in Bárðarbunga volcano under Vatnajökull glacier continues to be strong. In total 160 earthquakes were detected in the area since noon on Friday, two of which were magnitude 5.4, as stated in the latest update from the Scientific Advisory Board of the Icelandic Civil Protection, released at noon yesterday.

The subsidence of the Bárðarbunga caldera continues at a similar rate as in the last few weeks. The rate of the depression in the center of the caldera is decreasing but the flow of magma underneath the caldera is not since the depression area in the caldera continues to grow at the same rate as in the past three months.

GPS measurements outside Bárðarbunga show that the displacement is slowing down.

Three future scenarios are still considered most likely: that the activity will gradually subside and the eruption in Holuhraun stop; that the fissure will extend under the glacier and result in a sub-glacial eruption, ash fall and flood; or that Bárðarbunga will burst with a major sub-glacial eruption, ash-producing activity and massive flooding in glacial rivers.

About Earth Changes Media w/ Mitch Battros

Mitch Battros is a scientific journalist who is highly respected in both the scientific and spiritual communities due to his unique ability to bridge the gap between modern science and ancient text. Founded in 1995 – Earth Changes TV was born with Battros as its creator and chief editor for his syndicated television show. In 2003, he switched to a weekly radio show as Earth Changes Media. ECM quickly found its way in becoming a top source for news and discoveries in the scientific fields of astrophysics, space weather, earth science, and ancient text. Seeing the need to venture beyond the Sun-Earth connection, in 2016 Battros advanced his studies which incorporates our galaxy Milky Way - and its seemingly rhythmic cycles directly connected to our Solar System, Sun, and Earth driven by the source of charged particles such as galactic cosmic rays, gamma rays, and solar rays. Now, "Science Of Cycles" is the vehicle which brings the latest cutting-edge discoveries confirming his published Equation.
