The Bardarbunga volcano caldera lies under a 700-meter-thick ice cover,
says reader Markus Free. A flow of magma there can happen since it looks like crust is breaking and moving to that area.
700 meters! That’s 2296 feet – almost a half-a-mile, straight up – of ice!
Even if the volcano does not erupt catastrophically, what would happen if all of that ice should suddenly melt?
Sea-level rise, perhaps?
Ah, but I forget. Sea-level rise only counts if it was caused by humans.
