Katla - aligning earthquakes

It is worth commenting that the activity at Katla is beginning to increase again. But it is doing so along a couple of discernible lines at the moment.

Earthquakes in the last 24- hours around Katla (Icelandic Met Office)

I first noticed this yesterday as the small increase in earthquakes and that they seemed to fall along two planes.

Earthquakes on the 9th (Icelandic Met Office)

Given that this was an increase from a period of relative quiescence, albeit with the quakes that were occurring were still in the region of previous activity, it has started to become interesting again.

Earthquakes on the 7th (Icelandic Met Office)

And from the 5th:

So, we’ll see how this progresses.
