Volcano Erupted In Iceland’s Reykjavik

Volcano Erupted In Iceland’s Reykjavik:

A volcano erupted in Iceland’s Reykjavik with lava fountains reaching high up in the air recently.

  • In just the past two years, there have been four eruptions on the Reykjanes Peninsula, Iceland’s most populated corner and home to its capital.
  • Iceland volcano is an opening in the Earth’s crust that allows molten rock, gases, and debris to escape to the surface.
  • Movement of molten rock in the mantle, caused by thermal convection currents, coupled with gravitational effects of changes on the earth’s surface (erosion, deposition, even asteroid impact and patterns of post-glacial rebound) drive plate tectonic motion and ultimately volcanism.
