New Sinkholes Open Up Around Volcano In Iceland

Tungnafellsjökull central volcano has not have recorded historical activity, but is considered an active volcano that has erupted during the past 10,000 year, mainly from flank fissures on the NE side where young basaltic lava flows occur. However, researchers have recently found news cracks and sinkholes / craters on their way to Gæsavötn. Are these traces of recent explosions in the Tungnafellsjökull volcanic system?

The reason behind these movements is not obvious. However, they appear to be related to Bárðarbunga activity and may be caused by tension changes in the crust, especially in the center of the volcano. The impact of Bárðarbunga on the surrounding volcanoes is not entirely understood.
