From a plate tectonics perspective, the northwestern part of Iceland is on the American Plate and the southeastern part is on the Eurasian Plate. therefore, a hot spot is located just below Iceland, more precisely under the Vatnajökull massif. This unique situation generates significant volcanic and geothermal activity on the island, located mainly along this graben, where the magma is closest to the surface.
