Icelandic earthquake revives Geysir


This video is called Double Eruption of Strokkur Geysir (Iceland).

From Iceland Review:

Geysir Revived by Earthquake

Geothermal activity in Southwest Iceland has been on the rise since last Thursday’s earthquake. Geysir, Iceland’s largest hot spring, which has been largely dormant for years, has been heating up since Thursday and even erupting occasionally. Meanwhile eruptions in Strokkur, a smaller hot spring located next to Geysir, have been far more powerful than usual, Morgunbladid reports.

A similar trend was observed following the earthquakes in 2000, although the current increase in geothermal activity is far greater than it was then.
