Monday Ice: Volcanic Anniversary's

Earlier this past week was the 40th anniversary of the disastrous volcanic eruption on Heimæy in 1973 and the 50th anniversary of the formation of the newest island Surtsey in 1963.

The first video is an excerpt from a ABC 1 documentary

And this one is by Britannica.


  1. Hi Vicki, we were fascinated recently to visit an island in Auckland Harbour (New Zealand) that was around 600 years young - to think that Surtsey is only 50 years young is astounding. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Ineresting videos Vicki, makes our flods look tame.
