Hvad gerdist vid Kvíárjökul í lok ísaldar? / Sigurdhur Björnsson.

Title: Hvad gerdist vid Kvíárjökul í lok ísaldar? / Sigurdhur Björnsson.
Translated title: What happened to Kvíárjökul at end of ice age?.
Author(s): Björnsson, Sigurdhur.
Date: 1993.
Language: Icelandic.
In: Náttúrufraedingurinn. (1993.), Vol. 62(1-2) (1993)
Abstract: Major part of article deals with changes in landforms in vicinity of Kvíárjökul and reasons for these. Young volcanics are found high above both sides of glacier, both lava and tephra, with no traceable vents. Flood deposits from jökulhlaup are on both sides of glacier, showing large flood early in postglacial time. Large obstruction seems to have forced floods to flow east and west of glacier's present position. Article ends with interpretation of these facts and points to huge explosion in volcanic cone making extensive deposits beyond Iceland.
