I was researching about certain places that interest Geologist and I cam across Iceland so I looked further into it. Iceland is located on the rift between the Eurasian Plate and the North American plate (Mid-Atlantic Ridge). It is also located on a hotspot just like Hawaii which was in the first lab that we did in class. The hotspot known as the Iceland Plume is belived to have formed Iceland. Because of Iceland’s location the country is the host to more than 100 volcanoes. More than 25 of these volcanoes have erupted in recent history. The last eruption in Icelan was Grimsvotin in 2004. Iceland being one of the most volcanic places on earth has some interesting facts. It is estimated that 1/3 of the lava erupted since 1500 AD came from Iceland.
