DURHAM, United Kingdom — A secret, sunken continent may be hiding under Iceland and the surrounding ocean, according to an international team of geologists who are calling it “Icelandia.”
Researchers say this sub-aquatic land could stretch from Greenland all the way to Europe. Their findings show it may cover an area of around 230,000 square miles, but when the team includes adjoining areas west of Britain in a “Greater Icelandia,” the entire area could be in the region of nearly 400,000 square miles in size. That’s an area bigger than Australia.
