Caption: Vatnajokull ice cap, glacier and glacial lagoon, Iceland. Meltwater flowing off the glacier forms the body of water seen in the foreground. This glacier flows off the Vatnojkull ice-cap, the largest in Europe. It covers 8 percent of Iceland and its average thickness is 400 metres. It covers several active volcanos. The weight of the ice causes it to flow downhill to the sea, forming many glaciers.
