Cameras are always in color.
Various sources of steam are visible in the views, they are from the power plants and geothermal areas and are normal.
After dark the lightbeam of the Reykjanesviti (a lighthouse, 69m a.s.l.) will be visible sweeping the frame in a constant pattern. Other lighthouses around the peninsula can sometimes be seen in any of the views.
Just north of Grindavík is a large intensily lit greenhouse, it will also sometimes reflect in fog or low clouds. To the west of Grindavík are large communications masts with red hazard lights.
Common questions about earthquake map: Red pulsing circle on map? It's the location of the latest EQ. Colors in list? Yellow = updated, Orange = just added, Blue = just updated, Green = In view on map, White = Not in view What's aM? Estimated magnitude from the automatic system (Mw scale) No new EQs? We might have a delay in getting new data, this sometimes happens (like at midnight) and EQs will be delayed for about 20 minutes. What are the triangles? White triangles are peaks, green/yellow/orange and red triangles are volcanic systems with colour showing their aviation alert status
We use cameras from Hanwha like the XNP-6120 and XNP-6550. Provided by local distributor Hafnes.is
