Guest Video: Holuhraun and Askja

This 2016 video shows a little of the 2014 lava field from the Bardarbunga system in central Iceland — far from the ongoing Fagradalsfjall eruption — as well as nearby Askja (the caldera lakes in the second part).

Askja is stirring now, although it has not yet erupted. I like this video, too, because it shows how eruptions are only a small segment of the complicated interactions between volcanoes and their surroundings.

The stories of Nature continue after lava cools and the land heals, and then another eruption begins the next chapter.
