Webcam description

Jan Mayen Island is a volcanic island in the Arctic Ocean, 55 km (34 miles) long (southwest-northeast) and 373 km2 (144 mi2) in area, partly covered by glaciers (an area of 114.2 km2 around the Beerenberg). It has two parts: larger northeast Nord-Jan and smaller Sør-Jan, linked by an isthmus 2.5 km (1.6 mi) wide. It lies 600 km (about 400 mi) northeast of Iceland, 500 km (about 300 mi) east of central Greenland and 1,000 km (about 600 mi) west of the North Cape, Norway. The island is mountainous, the highest summit being the Beerenberg volcano in the north. The isthmus is the location of the two largest lakes of the island, Sørlaguna (South Lagoon), and Nordlaguna (North Lagoon). A third lake is called Ullerenglaguna (Ullereng Lagoon). Jan Mayen was formed by the Jan Mayen hotspot. It is part of the Kingdom of Norway. (Wikipedia)

In the native language of the webcam owner
L'île Jan Mayen est un territoire de la Norvège constitué d'une île située à la limite entre l'océan Atlantique et l'océan Arctique et dont l'administration est confiée au comté de Nordland[1]. Après sa découverte au début du XVIIe siècle par des baleiniers, l'île n'est revendiquée par aucune nation et sert seulement de base pour la chasse à la baleine ou la chasse au renard polaire. Elle devient un lieu d'études scientifiques lors de la première année polaire internationale durant l'hiver 1882–1883. Ce n'est qu'en 1929 que la Norvège en prend la possession exclusive et l'utilise comme base météorologique dans un premier temps, puis de radionavigation à partir de 1959.
