Iceland Earthquakes and Glacier Ice Melts

Iceland is an not a very interesting place to study tectonic as no Earthquake fault lines are known to exist there yet lately they have been having some seismic activity there. Now that you are thinking how can that be you are inline with the discussion recently at an online think tank when one member, Swift from Las Vegas, brought the subject up and stated;."Iceland has appeared to have quite a bit of activity in the past couple of years seismically.

They are looking at the ice masses slipping, as the magnitudes of the quakes aren't associated with known faults and are between 4.6 and 5.1. There have been 136 of them between 1993 and late 2005 along the SE and SW coasts all originating beneath glaciers which flow of at least 2 KM a year.

3/4 of them occur beneath the island's largest glaciers, Kangerdlugssuac, Jakoshavn Isbrae, and Helhem.".This is very interesting and one could say that climate change then in fact can cause Earthquakes. Yet we also know that large movements can trigger Earthquake faults also.

Does this mean that climate change or Global Warming if you wish to stick with that theory will cause Earthquakes? Is mankind in for a rocky road in the next decade or two? Well perhaps you will consider this in 2006.
