Krísuvík is a system of eruptive fissures, craters and small basalt shields in SW Iceland west of lake Kleifarvatn. A large eruption occurred from the Ogmundargigar fissure in 1188.

Background:

The Krísuvík volcanic system is a group of NE-SW-trending basaltic crater rows and small shield volcanoes cutting the central Reykjanes Peninsula west of Kleifarvatn lake.
Several eruptions have taken place since the settlement of Iceland, including the eruption of a large lava flow from the Ogmundargigar crater row around the 12th century, probably in 1188. The latest eruption at Krísuvík took place during the 14th century.
Uplift in 2009: Between May and November 2009 the area over Krisuvik Volcano was uplifted by 3 cm.
