Endless row of craters
by Anne Schöpa
The Laki crater row in southern Iceland opened during the eruptive period of 1783-1784 releasing poisonous gasses into the atmosphere that killed >50% of Iceland's livestock. The eruption caused a drop in global temperatures leading to crop failures and famine in Europe and droughts in India.
