Mysterious Quake Circle on Katla

Watching the animated graphic of earthquake activity on the Katla volcano in Iceland, a strange quake circle has developed over the past 7 days.

A ring of earthquakes located far over on the western rim of the Myrdalsjokull glacier (Katla volcano rumbles underneath), is a curious site for sure.

Zooming in on the region using Google Earth, the quakes apparently ring around what appears to be a horseshoe shaped steep ledge, which may indicate that the quakes have been induced by shifting ice.

Or, maybe it’s an anomaly of the new British funded seismometers that have been recently added around the region (are they worried?).

But then again… who’s to say…

Does anyone over there see any rising steam??
