Live webcams of Bardarbunga volcano
: Watch live webcam image, seismic and other real-time data in real time. If the large Icelandic volcanic erupts, you could follow the activity here.
Divergent plate boundaries in oceans
: Two ocean plates move apart from each other. Hot upwelling mantle material forms magmas that continuously produce new oceanic crust. An ocean widens.
