Abstract: Reviews and updates knowledge on glacial and volcanic environments of Mýrdalsjökull region (prior to next eruption of Katla). Contributions discuss: Katla and Eyjafjallajökull volcanoes; eruption history of Katla and tephrochronology; deglaciation and Holocene history of Iceland and Mýrdalsjökull area; fluctuations of Mýrdalsjökull during postglacial times; geomorphic and structural genesis of marginal moraines along fronts of Mýrdalsjökull outlet glaciers (Kötlujökull, Sléttjökull and Sólheimajökull, e.g.); dead-ice environments and landsystems model for debris-charged stagnant lowland glacier margin (e.g. Kötlujökull terminus); sediments and landforms produced by subglacial environments; evidence for subglacial deformation and deposition during complete advance-stagnation cycle at Kötlujökull; micromorphology of glacial sediments; and volcanogenic glacier outburst floods from Mýrdalsjökull and their proglacial impacts.
