The answer is of course both yes and no. It is yes because volcanic eruptions have been predicted many times correctly. Still, nature takes us by surprise all the time. With a model of convection rolls it will be possible to predict activity level of different volcanic sites and areas in the future. A key to that is the so called V-shaped ridges of Reykjanes peninsula, because there we see activity propagating along the ridge to the SW. Similar movement of activity centers along other lines should be found and thereby additional activity level at certain locations can be predicted.

I have a BS degree in geology, BA in anthropology, graduated in Chinese language and as a certified tourist guide. I provide this website about my contribution to answer the greatest question remaining about our Earth. I have analyzed the convection rolls within the Earth's mantle and how they affect the surface. This makes it possible to provide many interesting examples about geology found on my blog. View all posts by Steingrimur Thorbjarnarson
