Volcanic hazards and jökulhlaups in Iceland

Auteur :
ENGEL, Z.

Description :
Iceland is one of the youngest territory of the Earth's surface. Together with glaciers volcanic activities contribute to another risk process called jökulhlaup. It is a large-scale flood event generated by a sudden drainage of the water contained in glaciers. The geomorphological risk processes and their impact on relief formation are studied. - (MS)
