Record #147868:

New data on the age and origin of the Leidhólfsfell Cone Group in south Iceland / D. Jay Miller, Gudhrún Larsen.

Title: New data on the age and origin of the Leidhólfsfell Cone Group in south Iceland / D. Jay Miller, Gudhrún Larsen.
Author(s): Miller, D. Jay.
Larsen, Gudhrún.
Date: 1998.
In: Jökull. (1998.), Vol. 46 (1998)
Abstract: Group is association of scoria cones and ramparts in 1783-84 Laki lava flow. New data on tephra stratigraphy in nearby soil profiles show that it was formed by rootless vent eruptions when flow reached channel of Hellisá River. Radiometric dating of carbonised moss supports this, as does chemical composition. Contemporary accounts date it to 17 June 1783.
Notes:

Jökull. Vol. 46 :3-15 (1998).

Keywords: 551.21 -- Volcanoes.
551.217.2 -- Lapilli, ashes and other loose volcanic products.
B -- Geology and soil sciences.
(*3) -- Arctic regions.
