[1] Using a combination of body wave and surface wave data sets to reveal the mantle
plume and plume head, this study presents a tomographic image of the mantle structure
beneath Iceland to 400 km depth. Data comes primarily from the PASSCAL-HOTSPOT
deployment of 30 broadband instruments over a period of 2 years, and is supplemented by
data from the SIL and ICEMELT networks. Three sets of relative teleseismic body wave
