Iceland Volcanic High-Definition Remote Video!

A companion piece to the first DJI Feat, which takes viewers on a journey close to the active lava eruptions of the Bardarbunga volcanic system in remote Iceland. Footage was captured with DJI Phantom 2 quadcopters using Lightbridge for wireless, high-definition remote video.

Iceland Holds Europe and America Together!

Þingvellir National Park (pronounced Thingvellir) [1] is a national park in South Iceland and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park is home to the world’s longest running Parliament, first established in 930 AD, and also has a dramatic landscape formed as a result of sitting along the border between the North American and European tectonic plates.

Diving in the Tectonic Plate Gap

Between Europe and America!

According to the continental drift theory the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates are continuously drifting apart with great forces under the gaping rifts. As the plates diverge, linear fractures, known as fissures form due to stresses created by the tension that builds up as the plates move away from each other.
The Bridge between two continents at Sandvík is a small footbridge over a major fissure which provides clear evidence of the presence of a diverging plate margin. The bridge was built as a symbol for the connection between Europe and North America

Laki or Lakagígar is a volcanic fissure in the south of Iceland, not far from the canyon of Eldgjá and the small village Kirkjubæjarklaustur. Lakagígar is the correct name, as Laki mountain itself did not erupt, but fissures opened up on each side of it. Lakagígar is part of a volcanic system centered on the Grímsvötn volcano and including the Þórðarhyrna volcano. It lies between the glaciers of Mýrdalsjökull and Vatnajökull, in an area of fissures that run in a southwest to northeast direction.

The system erupted over an eight-month period between 1783 and 1784 from the Laki fissure and the adjoining Grímsvötn volcano, pouring out an estimated 14 km3 (3.4 cu mi) of basalt lava and clouds of poisonous hydrofluoric acid and sulfur dioxide compounds that killed over 50% of Iceland’s livestock population, leading to a famine that killed approximately 25% of the island’s human population.

The Laki eruption and its aftermath caused a drop in global temperatures, as sulfur dioxide was spewed into the Northern Hemisphere. This caused crop failures in Europe and may have caused droughts in India. The eruption has been estimated to have killed over six million people globally, making the eruption the deadliest in historical times.

The Giant Awakens – Eruption continues at full force!

 Bárðarbunga (“Bow-thar-bungar” in English) the giant Icelandic stratovolcano is already awaken according to Icelandic scientists. Bárðarbunga lies beneath the NW part of the Vatnajökull icecap, NW of Grímsvötn volcano, and contains a subglacial 700-m-deep caldera. It rises to 2,009 m (6,591 feet) above sea level, making it the second highest mountain in Iceland.

Bárðarbunga last had a major eruption in 1477 when it produced a large ash and pumice fall-out deposit. Bárðarbunga also produced the largest known lava flow during the past 10,000 years on earth.

Amazing pictures of the eruption in Holuhraun. The crack that is erupting is nearly a kilometer and a half long and the bursts of lava are between 20 and 70 meters high. The flow of lava is roughly equivalent to the flow of Iceland’s greatest river.

Ongoing Volcanic Eruption!

While it’s unclear what could happen next, this fissure eruption is one of the more desirable ways for Iceland’s highly active underworld to let off some steam. The relatively calm eruptions have yet to produce much ash, and they also did not melt through the glacier, which could have caused serious flooding in the area.

The new eruption prompted the authorities in Iceland to briefly raise the alert for air travel to red, but within a few hours when it was determined that the eruption was not producing any threatening ash in the atmosphere, the restricted flight area around the area was cancelled. As of this writing, no flight restrictions are in effect and airports are open in Iceland.

An eruption of a volcano nearer to the capital of Reykjavik in 2010 disrupted flight traffic over Europe for days, leading to the cancellation of over 100,000 flights.
