It was founded in 1950 by Icelandic meteorologist Jón Eyþórsson, who served as its editor until his death in 1968, publishing regular measurements of glacial margins and drift ice in Jökull.[2] These reports have continued, creating a valuable resource for climate scientists.[3]

Jökull has been a victim of journal hijacking.[4]
