..., where rifts narrow (East Pacific Rise). Collapsed rifts represent an end-member type of volcano-tectonic activity, where the width of the erupting reservoir balances that of the active rift zone. Along divergent boundaries, the width of the reservoir influences the style of surface deformation...

... lava surface of the Reykjanes Peninsula rift zone is displayed. The time and depth cubes were interpreted using DUG Insight software, but most of the figures in this paper are from the depth cube. Several seismic horizons were initially picked, such as the seafloor, AA, top basalt, base basalt...
