"The largest Jökulhlaups (glacial floods) in Iceland are known to have occurred along Jökulsá á Fjöllum between 7100 and 2000 yr BP. The source of these floods were likely an eruption of Bárðarbunga, the central volcano under the Vatnajökull glacier, in the late Holocene. The peak volume of this flood is estimated to have been 900,000m3/s of water discharge. This compares to the Amazon river, which has an average discharge of 209,000m3/s of water." (en.wikipedia.org)
