Geldingadalur Volcano Eruption (May 15, 2021)

The lava fountaining episodes at the active vent at Fagradalsfjall continue pretty regularly. Now the episodes and the intervals between each eruption are shorter than before, with the fountaining phase lasting for 1-3 minutes, and pauses between each episode about 3-4 minutes long.

Lava jets are just a bit shorter in height than previously, but wider at the same time. The fountains generally reach 250 meters in height in average during the strong sustained phase, but sometimes can reach 350 meters in height during the most energetic episodes.

The construction of a wall to prevent lava flowing in Nátthagi began yesterday.
