Eyjafjallajokull Ice Cap and Farmland in Iceland

Summary Authors: Cesar Cantu; Jim Foster
Shown above is a scenic view of farmland near Eyjafjallajokull, in southern Iceland. Though this volcanic island is just south of the Arctic Circle, it's largely self sufficient in regards to production of fresh foods. Challenging climate conditions are offset by arable land along the relatively temperate, low-lying coastal areas and huge geothermal reserves, permitting many vegetables to be grown in greenhouses. A portion of the Eyjafjallajokull Ice Cap can be seen in the background. Photo taken on October 20, 2014.
