THE GEOLOGY OF THE CANARY ISLANDS

636 pages, Elsevier, 2016.

Preview, e-Book and paperback available from Elsevier.


"The Geology of the Canary Islands" provides a concise overview of the geology and volcanology of the Canary Islands, along with 27 carefully planned day excursions comprising trips on all of the islands. Each stop includes a description on how to approach a site and where to park with GPS locations provided.

 

The book covers all the spectacular features of the islands, including active ocean island volcanoes whose origins are linked to a hot spot or plume causing anomalously hot mantle material to intrude the African plate, submarine volcanic sequences uplifted inside the islands, sub- aerial shield volcanoes, and the remains of giant lateral collapses.

Geology and Eruptions of a Highly Differentiated Oceanic Stratovolcano

279 pages, Springer, 2013.


Reviews:

“This book – the first in English summarising Teide’s geology and associated hazards – is particularly welcome for me. I’m sure it will be equally welcome to other geologists, amateur and professional, who visit Tenerife. The book is well illustrated with numerous colour images and is comprehensive in nature … . There is a full reference list for each chapter, a comprehensive index and biographies of the chapter authors.”

(Linda Fowler, Open University Geological Society Journal, Vol. 34 (2), 2014)


“Teide Volcano, is an excellent work that is detailed enough to be a reference book on the shelf of any volcanologist. The easy to understand style of the book means that it could equally be a general guidebook for a geotourist wishing to plan a trip to Teide. I can recommend this book to anyone with a reasonably good earth science background and a general interest in volcanic geology.”

(Károly Németh, Bulletin of Volcanology, Vol. 75, 2013)
