Located on the mid-Atlantic ridge at the meeting point of the Eurasian and North American plates, Iceland provides a window into divergent plate tectonics and it’s associated geological processes and landforms. Also, its northern position and geography means that 11% of the land is covered by glaciers lending to the study of glacial processes and landforms along with case studies of eruption-induced glacial flooding. Iceland is a geography teachers dream open air classroom.
