...Johann Helgason; Robert A. Duncan Abstract Volcanic strata in the Skaftafell region, southeast Iceland, record a sequence of at least 16 glacial and interglacial intervals since 5 Ma. Two composite sections of 2 to 2.8 km thickness have been constructed from multiple, overlapping, cliff profiles...

... the conduit was constricted and the flow was faster. A previously studied outburst esker at Skeiðarárjökull, Iceland has a similar morphology and stratigraphic architecture. This suggests that outburst floods generate distinct depositional signatures in eskers, both in terms of morphology and sedimentary...

... combine contemporary accounts of the 1783–1784 Laki fissure eruption in southern Iceland with morphological analysis of the geological deposits to reconstruct the lava–water interactions and assess their impact on residents. We find that lava disrupted the local river systems, impounded water that flooded...

... strongly on the volcanic record ( Smellie, 1999 , 2006 ; Skilling, 2002 ; Smellie et al., 2008 ). This work complements that in Iceland, where similar conditions have prevailed, but under temperate ice caps (e.g., Eiriksson and Geirsdottir, 1991 ; Helgason and Duncan, 2001 ). The principal conclusions...
