Comments:
Pseudo craters near Mývatn in the north of Iceland. These were formed when hot lava flowed across marshy ground. Because steam exploded under the lava, the so-called "Pseudo Craters" were formed.

Comments:
Near Myvatn in the north of Iceland is this fumarole field. Here volcanic gases are escaping from the surface. Bubbling mud pools are formed by dissolved minerals due to acids in the groundwater.
