Wow, what is going on in Iceland the past 48 hours! There have been 3 concentrated areas of earthquake swarms that are still apparently ongoing. Iceland is a land of high volcanic activity, probably only second to the Indonesian regions. Iceland is located directly over tectonic plate boundaries and is rumbling with activity, possibly magma movement beneath the surface.
Iceland[note 1] (/ˈaɪslənd/ ( listen)) (Icelandic: Ísland (names of Iceland) IPA: [ˈislant]) is a European island country in the North Atlantic Ocean on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It has a population of about 320,000 and a total area of 103,000 km2 (39,769 sq mi). The capital and largest city is Reykjavík, with the surrounding areas in the southwestern region of the country being home to some two-thirds of the national population. Iceland is volcanically and geologically active. The interior mainly consists of a plate
au characterised by sand fields, mountains and glaciers, while many glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands. Iceland is warmed by the Gulf Stream and has a temperate climate despite a high latitude just outside the Arctic Circle.
