About the Volcano:Bárðarbunga is an Icelandic stratovolcano located under the ice cap of Vatnajökull glacier, rising to 2,009 metres above sea level, making it the second highest mountain in Iceland, just about 101 metres lower than Hvannadalshnjúkur..Bárðarbunga is a large and powerful stratovolcano, it is also Iceland's largest volcanic system, considered to be close to 200 kilometres long and up to 25 kilometres wide.The Bárðarbunga caldera is about 70 square kilometres, up to 10 kilometres wide and about 700 metres deep. The surrounding edges rise up to 1850 metres but the base is on average close to 1100 metres. The volcano is covered in ice, hiding the glacier-filled crater..Bárðarbunga was a little known volcano in Iceland because of its remote location, far away from settlement, and infrequent eruptions. Bárðarbunga's highest point is 2,009 metres high and is the second highest mountain in Iceland..Many tephra layers originally thought to belong to other volcanoes have in the recent studies proved to be from Bárðarbunga. The Gjálp fissure eruption in 1996 revealed that an interaction may exist between Bárðarbunga and Grímsvötn. A strong earthquake in Bárðarbunga, about 5 on the Richter scale, is believed to have started the eruption in Gjálp.
