Reykjanes Ridge of Equator Convection Rolls System, and Convection Rolls of Polar Rolls System Connected

The Reykjanes Ridge is mainly shaped by the equatorial system of convection rolls, but the direction shifts when the polar convection rolls system takes over within the transition zone at the latitudes where Icealnd is located.

Reykjanes Ridge Convection Rolls and Connection With Polar Convection Rolls

It must be remembered, that the main division line is actually 1.5° farther to the East, where the division between large lower mantle convection rolls is found.
