7-12-02 UK scientists have detected signs of unusual geothermal
activity beneath two ice caps in Iceland. They say this has caused
the appearance of two deep depressions, known as cauldrons, in one of
the caps. Beneath the other they have recorded seismic movements
which could be the precursor of a big eruption. The scientists say
there is little threat at present, but cannot predict how the
activity may develop. The two ice cauldrons, about 12 km (eight
miles) apart, are on the Tungaarjokull glacier, on the western edge
of the Vatnajokull ice cap in southern Iceland. One cauldron is 1.5
km wide and 100 metres deep, and the other almost as large. The
glacier itself is 200-300 m thick. One of the scientists involved in
the research is Dr Matthew Roberts, of the Icelandic Meteorological
Office. _____________________________

He told BBC News Online: "The larger cauldron has grown deeper and
wider in the last 24 hours. "We think the geothermal activity
triggered a rapid release of meltwater from under the glacier." The
team believes the water could now set off volcanic activity which
might pose a danger to surrounding areas. A similar glacier outburst
flood, known in Icelandic as a "jokulhlaup", in 1996 washed large
quantities of ice and sediment into the Atlantic, causing huge damage
to bridges, roads and power lines. Dr Roberts told BBC News Online he
and his colleagues were also concerned about another ice cap,
Myrdalsjokull, in south central Iceland. He said: "We've detected
earthquakes there reaching nearly three on the Richter scale. "The
last time there was an eruption there, in 1918, the outflow reached
250,000 tonnes of water per second from the ice cap, and the fallout
of the ash cloud spread to the mainland of northern Europe. "We know
that Myrdalsjokull will erupt again, though whether in the next few
days or the next decade we can't say."

Pole Shift Alert - The article above indicates increasing volcanic
activity beneath the glaciers of Iceland. Iceland is located very
near the North Pole. I want to point out a related Edgar Cayce
prediction just below. Are these volcanic activities in Iceland the
result of upheavals in the Arctic that Cayce was speaking about? If
so, then we should expect to see increasing volcanic activity in
areas near the equator all around the world. In fact, this is exactly
what has been happening. You will note from the Weekly Volcanic
Activity Report that the majority of currently erupting volcanoes are
in the torrid areas of the Earth. And more are being discovered 4
More Volcanoes Found in Andes. What we are witnessing are the outward
signs of massive shifts in magma and mass within the interior of the
Earth. These changes in mass are bringing about changes to the
rotational stability of the spinning earth. When this imbalance
reaches a critical point, there will be a geophysical pole shift. We
are fast approaching this critical point.

"There will be upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will
make for the eruption of volcanoes in the torrid areas, and there
will then be the shifting of the poles so that where there have been
those of a frigid or semi-tropical will become the more tropical, and
moss and fern will grow." - Edgar Cayce
