Is Katla Ready To Blow?

Haraldur Sigurdsson charts the skyrocketing number of quakes (at Katla in Iceland) since 1990 and thinks “…it is unlikely that the quakes are related to melting of ice due to the glacier. Hence, he says that possibly the quakes are related to geothermal heat under the ice. Haraldur Sigurdsson concludes by saying that Katla continues to cause nervousness among all.”

In 2010 the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland closed the airspace of Europe. Katla is immensely bigger. It could be devastating!
