Mýrdalsjökull and Katla volcano

Mýrdalsjökull is situated to the north of Vík í Mýrdal and to the east of the smaller glacier Eyjafjallajökull. Between these two glaciers is Fimmvörðuháls-pass. Its peak reaches 1,493 m (4,898 ft) in height. The icecap of the glacier covers an active volcano called Katla. The caldera of the volcano has a diameter of 10 km (6.2 mi) and the volcano erupts usually every 40 – 80 years. As the last eruption took place in 1918, scientists are monitoring the volcano very carefully as they believe an eruption of Katla is on the cards, particularly after the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull began in April 2010. Since 930, 16 eruptions have been documented.
