Tectonic Fissure Exposure, Reykjanes, Iceland 3D Model
Fissure Section Exposure. ‘Bridge between Continents’, Reykjanes Peninsula Iceland.
Location Map: https://goo.gl/maps/2j6mqGZc6692
The lava-scarred Reykjanes peninsula lies on one of the world’s major plate boundaries, the Mid Atlantic Ridge.
As the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates diverge active fissures and rift zones are exposed at the surface during volcanic and tectonic activity at the plate margins. Once activity stops the fissures may become dormant allowing access to study exposed lava features after the event.
This is a 3D model of a ‘dormant’ section of the North American Plate exposure (West) at the ‘Bridge between Continents’, created using Structure from Motion (SfM) techniques from Digital Camera images collected during a undergraduate module field trip to Iceland (GAP2046), April 2017 (Geography - Queens University Belfast).
