How do you view volcanoes? - 28.2.2017

The Icelandic Met Office and King's College London are carrying out a survey on views toward volcanoes. It has two aims: to investigate Icelanders' and tourists' views about the 2014–15 eruptions at Holuhraun, and to assess the role of volcanoes and volcanic activity in Iceland more generally.

The Icelandic glaciers weighed from space - 25.1.2017

Mass balance measurements carried out by the Institute of Earth Sciences at the University of Iceland and the Icelandic Meteorological Office have shown that glaciers in Iceland have retreated and thinned steadily since 1995. The volume of the glaciers has been reduced by approximately 10 km³ per year on average. The mass loss of the glaciers causes perturbations in the Earth's gravity field near Iceland that are detected by sensitive instruments on board of German/American GRACE satellites.

During late winter to mid-summer conditions were rather dry, but the autumn was very wet, especially in the southern part of Iceland

HARMONIE - numerical weather prediction model 

HARMONIE is a numerical weather prediction model (NWP) that is non-hydrostatic and convection-permitting. It is operated at 2.5 km horizontal resolution over a domain that covers Iceland and the surrounding seas. At this resolution it is possible to simulate explicitly some processes that are important for clouds and precipitation as well as meteorological phenomena related to up- and downdrafts. In order to simulate the interaction between the atmosphere and the surface, the model takes into account different types of land surface as well as processes in and at the surface.
