Sólheimajökull Glacier

In Iceland, Landscapes, Nature, Travel by Dusty Cline

The glacier snout Solheimajokull is the southwestern outlet of the Myrdalsjokull icecap. It is about 8 km long and 1-2 km wide. River Jokulsa discharges it, and is sometimes called “The Stinking River” because of its emission of sulphuric acid from sub-glacial high temperature areas.
