The Krafla Fires lasted from 1975-1984.  It wasn’t necessarily an eruption from a volcano, but rather magma that was expelled from fissures as a result of seismic activity. The magma chambers are fairly shallow at 3km below the surface. The fields are sprawling for several square kilometers. An awesome sight to be seen...plus there are still active steam vents. #krafla #kraflafires #kraflalavafields #lava #magma #fissures #volcano #steamvents #geothermalactivity #nerdalert

This is Leirhnjúkur. It’s a lava field created by the Krafla Fires of 1975-84 - and look! Thirty-something years later, it’s still so hot it’s steaming!

I can never even look at these pictures without shrieking “Therim Pel!” (Go and read The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch). This is the lava field at Leirhnjúkur, up by Krafla at Mývatn. This lava field was formed during the Krafla Fires of 1975-1984 and, as you can see, it’s still steaming. Lava is hot and stays hot for a very long time. And I love fresh lava.

The Heart of Krafla Volcano | Iceland 🇮🇸- Between 1975 and 1984 there was a volcanic episode within the Krafla volcano. It involved nine volcanic eruptions and fifteen uplift and subsidence events. This interrupted some of the Krafla drillfields. During these events a large magma chamber emerged. This has been identified by analysing the seismic activity, it was known as the Krafla Fires.

This is Leirhnjúkur, a big black lava field laid down by the Krafla Fires of 1977 - 1984. This thing finished erupting before I was born and it's still steaming. My guidebook describes it as "compellingly grotesque" but I love it - the freshest newest lava I could get my feet on until I went to Hólahraun this summer. #travel #iceland #myvatn #mývatn #krafla #leirhnjúkur #leirhnjukur #kraflafires #lava #lavafield #volcano #timerselfie
