The Arctic World Club scientific expedition to Iceland is successfully completed!
Melting glaciers of Iceland as a result of climate change on the planet can lead to an increase in the activity of numerous volcanoes located in the territory of the state.
The activity of Icelandic volcanoes decreased markedly in the relatively cold period between 3.5 and 2.5 thousand years BC, when the thickness of the Icelandic glaciers increased significantly. According to the observations of scientists, about 600 years passed between the onset of cooling and a noticeable decrease in volcanic activity. Now the volcanic systems of Iceland are no longer experiencing the influence exerted on them by the so-called Little Ice Age of the 16th-19th centuries, but it is still difficult to say when exactly the eruptions on the island can become frequent. Therefore, it is important to fix the influence of climate fluctuations on the processes of formation and melting of Iceland's glaciers.
