Caption: Glacial lagoon, Iceland. This ice and meltwater is from a glacier of the Vatnajokull ice cap. This ice-cap is 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 and lakes.
