The Sulfur Saga

Hafnarfjörður, Iceland – Guest Blogger Ben Kumpf (’18)


Sulfuric gas rising with steam from the water heated from a subsurface magmatic intrusion. If you ever wanted to smell a volcano this would be a great stop in Iceland, however you should bring some nose plugs because this  place will really take your breath away.


Our slimy little friend also enjoying the pungent smell from the geothermal vents. It looks like he’s trying to catch some fresh air and maybe some TV with those Martian antennas.


Part of the perks of coming to Iceland is definitely the breathtaking views you can get from just about anywhere on the island. This one in particular is from the top of the geothermal area at the end of a long field day.
