Volcanology in Iceland
Seismic studies indicate that there may be several magma sources, even within a single volcanic system, in Iceland’s Eastern Volcanic Zone. With help from Earthwatch, the next frontier in volcanology in Iceland involves understanding whether seemingly separate volcanic systems are linked to the same magma sources, at what depth, and what effects such connections may have on overall regional volcanic activity. Tracing where magma is coming from and where it is going should give scientists a better handle on its ultimate “fate”—which has significant implications for being able to predict the occurrence and duration of eruptions and other volcanic disturbances.
