Abstract: Iceland is one of the few places in the world where a Mid-Oceanic Ridge (MOR) is exposed on land, and this gives good opportunity to study geodynamic processes. Spreading of Mid-Atlantic Ocean Ridge (MAR) segments in Iceland began ~60 million years ago. The MAR segments in Iceland have a divergent spreading rate between the Eurasian and North American plates of ~19 mm/yr and are divided into the Western (WVZ), Eastern (EVZ), and Northern Volcanic Zones (NVZ). These zones include 35 active volcan... more
