This book presents as comprehensive an overview of volcanism in Iceland as was available at the end of the 20th century, bringing together information from earlier publications as well as from hundreds of scientific papers published in Icelandic or English during the century. While scholarly and erudite, it is presented in a form which will be accessible to those with no knowledge of geology, as well as being relevant to scientists or students of the subject.
