Description :
The situation in Iceland for establishing a tephrochronological time scale is very good... Tephrochronology has been applied to studies of the eruption history of the most active volcanoes. It has also been utilised in archaeological research and palynology, studies of fluvial erosion, wind erosion, and in cryopedological and glaciological research. A tephrochronology correlation between Iceland, the European continent and Greenland has been established.
