RVK Newscast #108: The Volcano Pushes Out 20 Metres High Lava Waterfall

Jun 10, 2021
Hello and welcome to the Reykjavik Grapen

newscast

. My name is Valer Gratisson. I'm the attitude boss at Reggae Gripen. We are here. Near the fire. We are not at all well. We are up and in fact we are down. and we are in front of fagara darls green the

lava

from the beautiful valley uh mountain this

lava

here we actually showed you this a week ago too but the interesting thing about this is that it actually went through the second uh lava wall that didn't I don't know what you should call it in English, it's too nice, uh, to preheat it, like to start the lava flow, of course, nothing holds this lava, it broke it very easily and they built another one and that's like the west up here and it actually broke this too. weekend, which means everything started to fall, not only from there, you can even see the red undercurrent here, but also from here, after the oil, somehow aerial images or something else, so everything It's going down here and what's really amazing right now is how the modifications have changed in this valley and if you just look at this valley here, I know it's hard to see this in the video, but this is nothing less than about two kilometers alone. this valley here and when we were here last time.

So we started shooting almost at the edges of the lava, uh, where actually the place is now under the lava. You remember there was like I stood with a rock and there was like a beautiful brown sandal around it. Me and there was a lot of wind that has now almost completely disappeared, which means that on the other side here is the road and if this lava fills this valley so quickly, I think we will reach the road, at least sooner. at the end of the month, so it's pretty noticeable to see, I mean it could be that it just

pushes

everything up, there's like very strong undercurrents that come down here and they're actually pushing things up and when the lava can't go further out, it gets

high

er and

high

er and this lava flow, well, this valley, if you can, takes a lot when, like, when you go, at the height, you can see how high these mountains are, they're probably around. 300 meters at least 400 meters so it's something important too uh maybe before you ask I'll try to answer it uh you can see the colors of the lava here it's interesting, you can see that it's like a black tone and then it's like gray white uh like a texture on top, it's basically just a light trick, it's just that the lava is changing a little bit, which means we no longer have these rough arcs like everywhere, we also have very smooth lava here and there, which means that We see these hot lights the same way here, for example, it's very visible on this hill change, so it's quite impressive actually, but not as impressive as the

volcano

itself and before we go there, I just want to remind you, for supposed. our online store our sponsor Institute.com you can find it in our online store, in fact, we can send it to you if you want, if you want a small lava, of course, you can buy something from us, we will probably send it to you with Uh, it's not with everything , but it is with many things, but we have a lot of news and let's get into it.

More Interesting Facts About,

You can see the wall here, it's like the last memory of engineers trying to stop this lava and however you can. Look, it didn't do much, maybe we reduced it too because the last time we got here, remember, I showed you that they had closed the area there, uh, this used to be what they called it, uh, the helicopters that don't I don't know how much you can hear me , but it's very difficult to talk and it's up there that's why it always interrupts me, but you can see here where the lava comes down. It wasn't the last time we visited, which was a Sunday a week ago, but now it took like a week to go by and they closed this mountain there that we nicknamed hot cone or looking hill, something like that, it's a silly name, but it's funny. uh but the thing is the helicopters are actually using this mountain now or the hill and we call this when it's like closed by itself, I don't know, it's like I always when I go back to watch the videos I can hear myself talking.

I never hear the helicopters, but yeah, it's like I hope you understand, this is very annoying when you're talking anyway, this area over there, the hill over there, uh, it's actually called oh Prince Holmes, it's a horrible name for foreigners and non-Icelandians. say of course, but it means that no one can get there because they are cut off from love and we have a specific word for that, for some reason I had never heard this before, but it's a pretty nice word actually an Atlantic and although it sounds maybe a bit brutal, but yes, the lava here is absolutely beautiful, as always, you can feel the heat and the bad smell like soul food and like melting stones, it's almost like pavement, but not yet and you can.

I even feel like you are when we breathe, we are definitely breathing something we shouldn't, but we have the wind at our back so we should be more than fine. Also, there have been no gas accidents or anything like that. The longer time, I think is mainly because we are so far from the

volcano

itself, so it feels like it's a little safer to go up here now and the view is no worse than even though we can't go. as close as we could, but I mean you see it from a different perspective and it's still impressive, in my opinion the biggest news here is that the volcano itself, like the pressure is changing, and look at this, the lava pit like what lava

waterfall

is falling uh and it's only like five minutes later I mean it must be like three three minutes or something like that and this

waterfall

is at least 20 meters high which means it's far from the highest in Iceland, but it is quite impressive.
Still, you can see it. It's like we only see the waterfall and then at the end we'll see like a little splash of the volcano that doesn't go all the way there, but we won't see as much as we do. I've done it before, the reason is quite simple, actually, first of all, the volcano itself, like the mountain surrounding it, is huge and can't really be less than 200 meters high. It's actually getting taller than the fat fargratal around here. This is the threat volcanic system fire and you can see how high it actually is and it's quite interesting, I mean the lava fire geyser that we saw at the beginning is of course drowned out by the height of this mountain , so also the tunnels to this, the tunnels to the magma chaser are about seven kilometers long and all of this doesn't make sense to Americans, just Google it, but it means that volcanologists who have this theory that this volcano is actually a shield it will be a sealed mountain uh if you don't know what it is you can Google it it's literally like a sealed shape meaning you can see how everything is flattening out over here you can see. how the lava is flatter and how it gets higher and higher and I know I said last time we're like 100 meters down there, that's not true, I think I'm horrible when it comes to lengths, but there are at least thousands of meters down there, but this will only push further up as time goes on, which means that eventually the lava will reach the top of this mountain and come down like a shield, you know, a previous shield. both sides, which means that this mountain there, the opening is home, the hardest, in the end it will be at least partly consumed by lava, as you can see, it is already happening at this moment, so the reason is also The volcano itself could also be as large as the tunnels for the rising lava, meaning it could be a little wider.
It could also just be a pressure change in the gas and things like this, I mean, it's quite a bit. It's hard for you to imagine that it's not like you can just go there and just do your tests, so it's all theories and volcanoes. They don't really want to say indefinitely that this is something, but this is obviously a strong indication that the ever-changing volcano is what it is and the question is that if it is really a sealed mountain with some theories about the likelihood that this will continue. for at least years, I mean at least one, if not many years, so that in itself.
It is, of course, interesting, but more, yes, of course, I like its strength, I remember, a few weeks ago since I told you, that this lava is good, the volcano, since it changed, is actually much stronger and it produces a lot more volume of lava than it used to have before when we had like nine craters uh appearing at the same time uh remember I told you this was like five to seven cubic meters per second uh so they thought this was double the volume now and that seems to be correct. The first time they said this was that they had a theory about this, but now it's been confirmed that this volcano right now is twice as strong as all the other craters before, which means it's pretty consistent. about 13 meters per second, cubic meters per second, of course the lava is being produced and pushing outwards in these huge cascading lava flows, which is pretty impressive in the end, I just want to show you how far away the lava is. closest to the The volcano has actually come, this is important because of course you can see the lava built up here, but the path is here and it's like, uh, hundreds of 200 like, there's not even maybe 100 meters between the lava at its highest point here and on the way.
It's actually just a matter of time until the lava passes through the path and it probably connects enough where the lava is passing there too just before you understand where we are, this is the south, uh, Krintavik, it's over there and There is Reykjavik. this is like this this is the north and this is the west tears uh and it means that this is uh this of course uh so this is basically uh it means that this road here and everything around it will definitely change, which means that we will not be able to access this uh Afterwards, I would say one or two months, since the volcano will still be active, but we can also say that we do not despair because you can see all the mountains here, this is, of course, fire in Fiat.
We can walk up there and see it in its glory so there is no shortage of fantastic places to see this mountain and in the end we can probably go to the other side and see it from there but it will shoot up again so in the end I just want to remind you, of course, that on our home page, Grapepine.is and in our online store, once again, and you know how this goes, of course, because thank you for looking, thank you for everything, all the support for the comments and everything, we absolutely love it, we even received a sock they sent us which was a very nice gesture, plus no, we don't really want anything. from you, plus you like and subscribe and, of course, visit us again whenever you want, until then, goodbye and see you later, wow, foreigner.
