Erosion of Jökulá in Fljótsdalur river and Lagarfljót river


The latest information about the erosion of Jökulsá í Fljótsdalur river and Lagarfljót river has been published.

The main conclusions are that erosion in Lagarfljót river banks above Steinbogi, rock arch, to Lagarfoss waterfall seems to be limited and local but the most erosion is south of Hóll farm.

The summer 2018 the river bank at Hóll, farm, was protected with rock so from now there should not be more erosin in that area.

Information about erosion from beginning of construction of Kárahnjúkavirkjun, power plant, and erosion 2018 can be found in a table in environmental indicator 2.4.
