Traveling along the 64th parallel in Iceland is fascinating. It is the latitude of volcanoes, from Hengill with two power plants at its side to Hekla, Laki and Öraefajökull volcano. And why is this latitude so active? It is one of the topics I deal with and have explained by referring to the convection current system.

I have a BS degree in geology, BA in anthropology, graduated in Chinese language and as a certified tourist guide. I provide this website about my contribution to answer the greatest question remaining about our Earth. I have analyzed the convection rolls within the Earth's mantle and how they affect the surface. This makes it possible to provide many interesting examples about geology found on my blog. View all posts by Steingrimur Thorbjarnarson
