only 10 miles of terra firma between us and a ocean of liquid rock 10,000deg F. Pretty cool, huh?
And you can thank.....gravity!
And we were there just a year ago. All we did was freeze our butts off on the standard tours, pay ungodly amounts for a hamburger and fight the crowds at the Blue Lagoon. That! would have been worth the price of admission ;>}

So..how many eruptions are ongoing in Iceland right now? Is this one Fagradalsfjall caldera, or is it from the new Geldingadalir caldera on the other side of the mountain? I was thinking there is only one active lava flow at the moment, but I am also reading there is a lot of earthquake activity at the other Icelandic volcanoes that might be signalling the onset of new activity.
There are about 30 active volcanos in Iceland.
Lava is around 2000F.
How much CO2 do volcanos put out? Anybody know?
no appreciation of Iceland is complete without a reading of “Burnt Niall”
