Surtsey is an island off SW Iceland, it was formed by volcanic eruptions beginning in November of 1963 and ending in June 1967. No further eruptions are expected there. The volcano is a composite form, where lava has covered the existing cinder cone and formed erosion-resistant rock. Although half of the original island is again covered by water, the island and its associated undersea ridges should survive for a long time. Several other islands in the archipelago formed in the same way over the last few centuries.
mount surtsey is a an active volcano

Surtsey is an active volcano, it is likely that it will erupt at any time.
I believe that surtesy is a volcano.

it just does erupt
Surtsey (part of an island group off SW Iceland) is on constructive plate boundaries, which means the two plates move away from each other and magma rises to the surface. This is how a volcano like Surtsey is formed.
Because there was a volcano eruption in Heimaey (in Iceland) and the ash and thing from it made an island from it, and that's Surtsey
1000 people died in the eruption of surtsey,iceland volcano because i was there
none its a new breed
The Surtsy volcano is located just off the coast of Iceland. Please see the related link.
It is 32Kms south of Iceland, a new island formed in 1963
Surtsey is an island that was formed by an undersea volcano in 1963. Some plants that live there are rockets, sea lyme grass, oyster plant and sea sandwort.
the magma and lava in Surtsey are of alkali olivine basalt, which is the type of basalt found in Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands)
Because two plates collided and pushed up creating the volcano.
Surtsey is formed on the convergent boundary between the North American and Eurasian plates. At this location this is oceanic crust.
Mount Surtsey is not extinct. In fact, it is not even dormant. A volcano is classified as "dormant" after 200 years of inactivity. Surstey erupted in 1963, and that was less than 200 years ago.
It have a massive eruption in the ocean.And it spread about 220 million cubic metres & about 7.7 billion cubic feet.And it an active volcano in Iceland.
