Atmospheric pressure means much to some
There are people who feel well the changes in atmospheric pressure – they might complain about hurting bones, headache before the rain.
Óþerrishola feels this as well. Geyser seems to be "happy" about the falling pressure – the silent spring often turns into a fervent geyser!
This action is caused by the decreased air pressure, which now allows the geyser to erupt. As the air pressure increases, geyser becomes stable again.
Óþerrishola is included in the following article:
Some of the world’s most popular geysers are located in Iceland. But few know about ALL active geysers in Iceland.
