Surtsey is a unuque island. Fifty years have
passed since Surtseyïs history began with an
eruption on the ocean floor southwest of the
Vestmannaeyjar archipelago in 1963. A marvellous
opportunity for geological and biological
research was granted, marking the start of an
uninterrupted, globally unique research
programme that lasted 50 years. The eruption is
the longest one ever observed in
Iceland.

Research has been continuous,
providing unique data and leading to
SurtseyÉs
inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List in
2008.
This book provides an exceptional
opportunity to view the hidden
world of Surtsey,
and readers can enjoy being expertly
guided
through the fifty years of the islandÉs
history. Changes have been
remarkable from the
start, and the book covers SurtseyÉs
geology,
vegetation and bird life, as well as
its evolving community of invertebrates.
