Geological measurements / Grindavík, Iceland

With our research aircraft MRF-002 (Bombardier E-11A) we are currently supporting the local authorities at Iceland with some research flights over the region of Grindavík. We equipped our aircraft with some specific equipment so that we can support the local authorities with detailed aearial photos and also precise measurements of the ground lifting and the development of the dike, which also goes below Grindavík and which effects the small city already. We will continue with some more research flights during the next days as long as it is needed. For safety reasons we have parked our aircraft at the airport of Reykjavik in the city center so that we have some more distance to the area, where the eruption might take place.
