Iceland’s Rift Valley. The mid-Atlantic Ridge extends for 65,000km around the globe. Most is located below the ocean. The rift valleys (locations where the North American & EurAsian tectonic plates meet) are most visible in Iceland at the Thingllvellir National Park where portions of the land meters & subsided by 40 meters over the last 10,000 years. The process continues today at a rate of about 2.5 cm per year. It is likely that at some point in the distant future the fracture will result in the release of lava, forming a new volcano & filling the void created by the Rift. At that point the process of Rift formation will begin anew.
