200 pages, B/w photos, illus, figs, tabs, maps
Concise and authoritative field guide to a country where rifting of the crust, volcanic eruptions and glacial activity are among a host of processes and features to be found. The material is presented as a set of excursions, with due emphasis on regions and localities popular among visitors. The first chapter gives a brief overview of the geology of Iceland and the principal processes that have shaped the island through its relatively short geological life. The book progresses in an anti-clockwise direction around the country and ends with a selection of excursions among the interior highlands.
