Glacier-covered Beerenberg volcano rises above the western coast of Jan Mayen at the northern end of the island. This remote island in the Norwegian Sea along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge about 650 km NE of Iceland consists of two volcanic complexes separated by a narrow isthmus. The Beerenberg stratovolcano has a 1-km-wide summit crater and numerous flank cinder cones. Reported eruptions from Beerenberg date back to the 18th century.
