It was rather ironic that while spending a week studying (relatively quiet) tectonic activity in Iceland, a significant earthquake hit the UK.
On my return, I gathered a few resources concerning this earthquake – having missed out on the event, at least I will have some information to hand when the next earthquake hits our shores. They may also stimulate the creation of a mini case study to use to compare with future larger events elsewhere in the world.
These web links provide some interesting comments from UK residents experiencing the earthquake:
However, my overall favourite resource is this tweet:
On my return to the UK, things did start to get rather more interesting in Iceland – with an unprecedented amount of activity around the island of Grimsey, just off the north coast.
My tectonic timing just seems a little out of sync at the present!
