Maps are presented for the glacier surface and the bedrock of two areas on Vatnajokull - Tungnarjokull and Sylgjujokull in the W ice cap and Eyjabakkajokull in the NE of Iceland. The ice surface maps are obtained by precision barometric altimeter. The bedrock maps are the results of radio echo soundings. Both maps are used for defining the water drainage basin. -from Author
