Eruption of Grimsvotn, Vatnajokull Ice Cap, Iceland
by Ragnar Sigurdsson (arctic-images.com), Iceland
The Grimsvotn central volcano is Iceland's most active fire furnace with eruptions being periodic-they often occur in decade long bursts with long dormant intervals. The action between water and magma result in explosive eruptions that produce ash and pumice but no lava.
