Bjo¨rnsson (1998) described the caldera as being 6–10 km diameter, bordered by the mountain ridge Grı´msfjall to the south and subglacial mountains to the north and east (Fig. 1c). The Grı´msvo¨tn caldera is divided into three smaller calderas: the main (or south), north and east calderas (Guðmundsson & Milsom 1997). The subglacial lake covers the main caldera and extends into the northern depression at high water levels. The lake covers the areas of highest geothermal activity, and the eruptions in 1922, 1934, 1983, 1998 and 2004 all took place at its southern margin, where geothermal activity is also most intense (Guðmundsson & Bjo¨rnsson 1991).
