Fixated on Katla

It has been more than a couple of years since I started to write on the potential for an eruption of the volcano at Katla in Iceland, following the eruption of its neighbor at Eyjafjallajokull, and the resulting disruption of air traffic.

One of the reasons that I continue to do so, apart from the historic pattern that Katla often erupts following Eyjafjallajokull, is the ongoing earthquake activity around the caldera. I noticed it clearly again today where with most of the zones of Iceland quiet, there is still that steady pattern. And this activity has persisted at a relatively low, but varying level, across this time. Doesn't say it will happen soon, but does continue to suggest that it is, nevertheless, going to happen. Patience is a good word.

Earthquakes in Iceland in the last 24 hours (Icelandic Met Office) Hopefully there won't be much more news for a while.
