I had a look at the live stream just now and a smiling face looked in from the left of the screen - one of the people there watching.

Here's an interesting article about the gases produced by volcanoes. I never knew about CO2 pockets or about gases coming out of the ground near the volcano, ground that looks perfectly innocent.

you can look but don't breathe

I saw two young children at the site yesterday. That strikes me as a very bad idea.

I wonder if the gases emitted by a given volcano are steady, or do they spike and drop in concentration over time? I read that the H2S level here is three times the legal limit, but if it might spike, there is very serious danger.

I was watching a couple days ago when a couple of hiking families photo-bombed the volcano. They moved the camera, and I don't know if that's why. Personally, that "HEY - LOOK AT ME!" stuff is very annoying.

Every time I go to the live camera I am offered a translation of the Icelandic below, so I decided to try it.
The English is not as good as Skarpi's. The translations range from charming to incomprehensible. Here are a few examples:

‘The night was quiet and today is well under way for a soda walk ...’

‘things have been going well, says Field Director Sigurdur Bergmann. At least he says twinkles in the air in terms of tomorrow.’

‘She builds her own bosges and since then it's been brought so much into the lava pond that the bosgeians have given themselves up and started leaking from it. It happened last night. The bosoms are at their lowest in the northwest.’

‘Bored weather is south by sea and will be through the night, but is expected to go down in the morning. But those planning a volcanic expedition tomorrow need to get ready well because it's going to be cold in the weather.’

‘no one had melded themselves from Grindavík or anywhere else by The South’

‘There was boring weather at the eruption sites today, but traffic was mostly traumatic, police said.’

‘the new crack is aluminium long and one that opened at the beginning of the eruption in Geldingadalur, and this is probably aluminium big’

Jabb the third crack has opened, and the direction is north east, and that is not good. All the best from Iceland Skarpi

I decided to learn some Icelandic words.

dalur = valley
klettur = cliff
fjara = beach

At our volcano site, dalur seems to become dalir, so that the eruption started in the Geldinga valley, Geldingadalir. I hope Skarpi will correct that if it's wrong.

The fissure has opened further, and lava is flowing into an adjacent valley, the Meradalir. Apparently these valley are completely uninhabited, so that's good.
==========
On YouTube, I look for footage posted by ruv.is, the official "natural-resources" agency of Iceland. One day I looked at a different source, which seemed sensationalized, and commenters said that some of the footage came from Hawaii.

A mere glacier won't stop an eruption. What it will do is melt, and the meltwater may react with the rising magma to create an explosive phreatic eruption.

Jack's link goes to a site with a map of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge in Iceland. It goes right under Geldingadalir, then makes a right turn toward the center of Iceland.

The volcano is showing new behavior - sending lava many meters into the air, so violently that it is now visible from Reykjavik. Here's a link:

https://www.euronews.com/2021/05/03/icelandic-volcano-becomes-more-volatile-and-powerful

(This page gives a couple of paragraphs, then says "Read More." But I never could get it to show me more.)

The article says the volcano is cycling between quiescence and eruption. Perhaps some unknown process is hold lava back until pressure builds up to the point where a huge lava fountain occurs. Perhaps the overall amount of energy at the site is unchanged.

It must be a remarkable thing to see - though I would only watch from a great distance.

I remember seeing an eruption from my office window. It was a couple hundred miles away but it was pouring ash into the sky and it was blowing toward town. Got home in time to get the car in the garage.

After a partial crater wall collapse at about 9 am local time the vent has given up his week-long geyser-like behaviour and is back to continously pouring out lava.

Thank you for the link, keb. The Grapevine had intelligent commentary from an authoritative source. Apparently this eruption is coming to an end. Reinhard's observation is in line with that.

Judging by the 'Visit Iceland' live feed this morning, it isn't about to give up just yet. There has been a fire geyser about every ten minutes.

Lenneia, that turned out to be for ten hours only. Rag is a lava geyser again....
