The now-dormant volcano under South Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier is showing signs of increased activity; but there is no indication the eruption is starting up again.
The increased activity began yesterday afternoon and has been sporadic since, RUV reports. Fluctuations in volcanic intensity are normal after a recent eruption.
Volcanoes show signs of activity as they move and settle down and the ongoing energy spikes do not automatically mean that the volcano is starting up again – although it clearly could, says Icelandic Met Office geophysicist Gunnar Gudmundsson.
