Earthquakes and Eruption in Iceland 2010 on Vimeo

by on April 13, 2010

Over on Vimeo, folks at DataMarket.net have taken data published by the Icelandic Met Office and created a movie showing the earthquakes leading up to the eruption of in Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland in March 2010.

They tell me that this is just the first of many visualizations they plan to make utilizing this Icelandic Earthquake data.

We will follow up on this one in the next few days with a few more visualizations using Icelandic earthquake data, trying to explain some of the geology and consequences of the country being slowly ripped apart by tectonic plates.
