is this still building up or is it resting now ?
i hate the way all the hype then now we will hear nothing about it
this is more interesting than the people abroad

Checking the seismic activity, Katla also named god on the tremor activity report is pretty normal at the moment. also ej.... what ever it's called has decreased in activity.

keep an eye on the 0.5 Hz to 1-2hz for God & Esk, God is going up, when 1-2 hz peek to 1400 thats when the eruption occurs.
ATM it's normal up and down trend at the moment.

also notice that when ESK peeked 400, Katla Aka God peek went to 1200 ;)

Latest from NATS:

Statement on Icelandic volcanic eruption: Wednesday April 21, 1845

Today, NATS has handled over 2600 movements in UK airspace up to 1800 local time – approximately 80 per cent of normal traffic levels. We are expecting a volume of traffic approaching 90 per cent from approximately 0700 tomorrow morning and are staffed appropriately to deal with this.

The latest guidance from the CAA shows the predicted location of dense volcanic ash in UK airspace over the far north of Scotland for the period 1900 on 21 April to 0100 on 22 April.

Airspace at 20,000 ft or below over the Orkneys, the Shetland Islands and north of Aberdeen will not be available and airports north of Inverness will also be affected (Stornaway, Kirkwall, Wick and Sumburgh). High level Oceanic traffic flying over this area is not expected to be affected.

Unless there is any significant change to our operations, we will not be issuing any further updates.

Things are back to normal here:

Let’s hope that we can now settle down to normality and people do not have to wait for days to get home or go abroad.
