The so called Westfjords of NW Iceland form together a coastlinie with the same direction as the volcanic zones in the southern half of the country. It has been explained by Björn Harðarson that this is due to the fact that an extinct volcanic zone is found just outside the peninsulas of this coastline. There are so many things about geologic history you can see on an ordinary map!

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
