Idek about Iceland but destructive = ⏩🔽 plates subduction = slab pull ridge push old crust subducts new crust and friction builds this causes earthquake bcoz of the immense of the epi centre
Constructive = two crusts coming up together and hen they meet and cause magma to rise build and then blow ⬆️⬆️ 🌋
Collisional= two parrallel plates crash 🔜
🔜. Causes earthquake
There is more but yh

Iceland lies on the mid Atlantic ridge, where the two plates are moving apart. To fill this gap magma rises to the surface to fill the gap. The magma being close to the surface meant it is able to burst through in places as volcanoes (mainly shield in Iceland) causing damage due lo lave flows and ash clouds which lead to stunted plant growth due to the lack of sunlight available for photosynthesis. The plate movement not smooth, meaning the plates jolt away from each other which causes earthquakes which destabilise buildings leading to collapse and a risk of life.
