Icelandic bridge connects two continental tectonic plates


In Reykjavik, Iceland, there is never any water under this unique bridge.

This bridge connects two tectonic plates that separated early in the formation of the continents of the Earth. Under tectonic theory, there are seven or eight plates that make up the hard outer shell of the Earth.

The land mass on the right is the tectonic plate for Eurasia. The land mass on the left is the plate for North America.
