Compton, K.R. A. Bennett, and S. Hreinsdóttir (2015), Climate-driven vertical acceleration of Icelandic crust measured by continuous GPS geodesyGeophysical Research Letters42, doi:10.1002/2014GL062446

Velocity and acceleration measurements from 62 CGPS stations in Iceland and the location of major ice caps. (a) Velocity as of 2014.5. (b) Timeā€averaged acceleration. The color bars indicate magnitude, while the size of the symbol is inversely proportional to the certainty of the measurement. V = Vatnajökull, H = Hofsjökull, L = Langjökull, ME = Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull, and D = Drangajökull
