Bardarbunga – Volcano

Bárðarbunga Volcano in Iceland is a very large central volcano lying underneath Iceland’s 500-m thick Vatnajokull glacier in the center of the country. It is located at the junction between the eastern and northern volcanic rift zones in the area where the present-day center of the mantle hot spot beneath Iceland is thought to be.
Bardarbunga has had about 23 eruptions in historic times
Approx 8600 years ago, Bardarbunga produced the largest known lava flow during the past 10,000 years on earth  when more than 21 cubic kilometers of melted lava erupted from the Veidivötn fissure system and traveled more than 100 km to the south coast.
