EirÃksjÃ¶kull (Icelandic for "EirÃk's glacier") is a glacier north-west of LangjÃ¶kull in Iceland, with an area of 22Â km2 (8.5Â sqÂ mi) reaching a height of 1,675Â m (5,495Â ft), making it the largest table mountain in Iceland. Rising over 1,000Â m (3,300Â ft) above its surrounding, the lowest 350Â m (1,150Â ft) of a hyaloclastite (mÃ³berg) tuya formed presumably by a single subglacial volcanic activity is capped by a 750Â m (2,460Â ft) thick lava shield. It is currently dormant or extinct in terms of volcanic activity.
