Iceland volcano: Peninsula faces ‘decades’ of instability

Earthquakes and fears of an impending eruption have led to the evacuation of the small fishing town of Grindavik.

After an 800-year hiatus, eruptions on the Reykjanes Peninsula began again in 2021, which may mark a new “eruptive cycle”, the IMO’s Matthew Roberts says.

“We expect to see volcanic eruptions along the peninsula, not just repeatedly in the same location.”

This instability, he adds, could last decades.
