Mechanical modeling suggests that previous, undetected eruptions released tectonic stress near the ice-covered Bárðarbunga volcano.
Observations from the surge-type glacier Múlajökull in Iceland underpin new modeling results that suggest the glacier’s drumlins grow during quiet intervals of normal flow between glacial surges.
During a closely watched eruption, plumes of harmful sulfur dioxide gas morphed into “plumerangs” of sulfuric-acid-rich aerosols that descended on populated parts of Iceland.
Estimates of crystallization temperatures from four eruptions in northern Iceland offer improved constraints on the mantle's temperature beneath this anomalous divergent plate boundary.
New insights from the 2010 eruption may help volcanologists determine how glaciers shaped ancient lava flows.
Satellite and ground-based data reveal sulfur dioxide flux, trace element release, and preeruption magma movement.
Iceland 2015: Field Workshop on Active Lava–Water Interactions; Holuhraun, Iceland, 20–28 August 2015
Artificial volcanic plumes, fired from cannons loaded with ash plucked from the slopes of Iceland, may help researchers better monitor disruptive eruptions.
A ferry's routine trips from Iceland to Europe provide the most detailed account of the region's water flow.
