BackgroundThe Geysir volcanic system in the Haukadalur valley of SW Iceland consists of an eroded basaltic central volcano and rhyolitic lava domes of Pleistocene age. Geysers around the world are named for the Geysir geothermal field, which lies SE of the rhyolitic Laugarfjall lava dome and is one of the most frequently visited geological sites in Iceland. No eruptions are known from the Geysir volcanic system during the Holocene.
