Strong volcanic activity predicted in Iceland for the next 60 years

The eruption of eyjafjallajokull It was just the beginning. Thorvaldur Thordarsonspecialist in Icelandic volcanoes by the University of Edinburgh, points out that we could be on the brink of a new era of volcanic activity in the region. Telluric movements in Iceland over the past decade suggest that the region is about to enter a more active phase, which would include several more eruptions.

In 1998, Gudrun Larsenof the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, used nearly 800 years of data on lava layers, ice cores and statistics showing that the country's volcanoes go through cycles of high and low activity. According to thordarsonvolcanic activity in Iceland seems to follow a periodicity of 50 to 80 years, so the awakening of the eyjafjallajokull seems to herald the arrival of a turbulent era.

Judging by the volcanic and telluric activity of recent years, Thordarson believes that Iceland is on the eve of a cycle of high activity. Scientists estimate that this could last approximately 60 yearsand the activity would be greater between 2030 and 2040. So, if we consider that there is a lot of damage caused by the ashes of the eyjafjallajokullwe will have to get used to it, because everything indicates that dark times are coming for air transport to the Old Continent.
