Into Iceland's Volcano

Descend to the depths with Geophysics

For the first time ever, a team of explorers and researchers descend into a volcano. Þríhnúkagígur in Iceland, the only place on earth where it is possible to enter an old magma chamber. Inside the conduit, the team finds crucial evidence revealing the inner workings of Icelandic volcanoes. This film was made for the National Geographic Channel.
