Iceland experiences volcanic eruptions every five years on average, and is one of the Earth’s most active volcanic areas. All islands there were created by volcanic eruptions about 5.000 years ago. Only Surtsey, the most southern island, is younger. The island was formed after a volcanic eruption in 1963, and was already protected as a natural conservation area during its formation. For the 50th birthday of Surtsey, a TV-Team was allowed to visit the island and reports what the biologists and geologists could observe during the past century.
