About this book

Volcanic Evolution of the Canary Islands reviews the geological evolution of the Canary Islands, one of the major volcanic archipelagos in the world. The authors use a very broad approach and treat major general aspects in 7 chapters before treating the geology of individual islands.

Chapters include: age and structure of the oceanic crust around the Canary islands, temporal evolution, volcanic aprons, volcanic structures and rock types, petrological evolution, comparison Canaries-Hawaii, Geology of individual islands and Hazards.

Volcanic Evolution of the Canary Islands is a much more in depth treatment of all subjects and a full coverage of the literature. Many photographs will be omitted and new ones included as well as many new graphs
