Siden januar i år har det vært registrert økt vulkansk aktivitet ved Grindavik på halvøya Reykjanes, sør på Island. Det er målt flere jordskjelv og bakken har hevet seg.

Deep intracontinental earthquakes are poorly understood, despite their potential to cause significant destruction. In a recently published article in Nature Communications, a study done in Lofoten by an international project led by Njord's Luca Menegon, has shed new light on the mechanisms through which earthquakes are triggered up to 40km beneath the earth’s surface. With the insight from this study, researchers hope to be able to help at-risk communities in the future from the danger these earthquakes poses.
