Details for: Hofsjokull
The broad glacier-capped Hofsjökull volcano lies beneath the western part of the massive Hofsjökull icecap along an east-west-trending area connecting the two principal rift zones of Iceland. The roughly 7 x 11 km wide central caldera of Hofsjökull volcano is buried beneath the icecap to the right of the high point in this view from the NNW. Flank fissures on the northern and eastern sides of the volcano have produced basaltic lava flows during the Holocene. Photo by Oddur Sigurdsson, 1978 (Icelandic National Energy Authority).
