Scientists from the Icelandic Meteorological Office and University of Iceland took a number of flights over the region  to observe these features that have come to two main preliminary conclusions: (1) these depressions are likely caused by melting of the ice from below and (2) these depressions lie along the water divide Jökulsá á Fjöllum River, which flows beneath 400-600 meters of ice.
