The Geology of the Canary Islands Book Review:

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. Through its clearly written and richly color-illustrated introduction and field guide, this book is essential reading for geologists who visit the Canary Islands, one of the largest and most fascinating active volcanic systems in Europe. Includes a forward by Prof. C. J. Stillman (Trinity College Dublin), a leading expert on the volcanology and geology of the Canary Islands Features 500 full color images, coupled with in-depth introductory text and a chapter on each island, followed by 27 guided excursions that include all of the seven islands of the archipelago Familiarizes the reader with the variety of volcanic landforms and eruptive products in the Canary Islands and provides practical support in recognition, recording, and interpretation Develops understanding of growth, evolution, and destruction of ocean island volcanoes, promoting temporal and spatial thinking within a given geological framework

Canary Islands Book Review:

Rising from the floor of the Atlantic the seven Canary Islands are related to a mantle plume or hotspot. The islands' geology is characterized by a wide range of volcanic and intrusive rocks, exposed in spectacular scenery and easily reached by road and on foot. These rocks include all the stage characteristics of oceanic island volcanoes. This clearly written and fully illustrated introductory guide is an essential accompaniment for earth scientists visiting the islands. (Series: Classic Geology in Europe)

The Geology of the Canary Islands Book Review:

The Canary Islands display all the features of active ocean island volcanoes. Their origin is linked to a hot spot or plume that causes anomalously hot mantle material to intrude the African plate. The islands are dominated by basaltic rocks, which include submarine volcanic sequences uplifted inside the islands, sub-aerial shield volcanoes, and the remains of giant lateral collapses. Tenerife and Gran Canaria also display extensive pyroclastic deposits. Active volcanoes comprise shield-stage volcanism in the west of the archipelago (El Hierro and La Palma), and post-erosional volcanic cinter cones and lava fields in the East (Lanzarote and Gran Canaria). Teide on Tenerife, in the center of the island chain, is the emblematic volcano of the Canaries, towering over the archipelago at over 3,700 meters. For these reasons, the islands make a spectacular destination for volcanological field trips and geological excursions, and they offer a deep and thorough insight into volcanic processes and ocean island evolution. This clearly written and richly color-illustrated introduction and field guide provides a concise overview of the geology and volcanology of the Canary Islands, and it offers 22 carefully planned day excursions comprising trips on all of the islands. Each stop includes a description of how to approach a site, and where to park, with GPS locations provided. The book will be essential reading for geologists who visit the Canary Islands, one of the largest and most fascinating active volcanic systems in Europe.

The Canary Islands Book Review:

The seven volcanic Canary Islands that bask in the Atlantic off shore from the north-west African coast have long had legendary connotations. To the Greeks they were the Gardens of the Hesperides, blessed with a perennial spring-like climate, while the Carthaginians christened them the Purple Isles on account of the rich dye material they obtained there. Inhabitants have ranged from the early Berber-descended Guanches, of whom cultural traces still remain, to the rich blend of European and Latin peoples that evolved after the Spanish conquest in the fifteenth-century. Famous visitors have included Columbus, Humboldt and General Franco, who famously flew from Gran Canaria in a (British-piloted) Dragon Rapide in 1936 to launch Spains Civil War. In todays cosmopolitan capitals of Las Palmas and Santa Cruz de Tenerife Spanish colonial-era buildings merge with modern centers equipped with sophisticated amenities. For vacationers tiny ecologically-oriented havens like Gomera vie with big brash tourist resorts like Playa del Ingls and Playa de las Americas, todays major money-makers after the brief trade boom of yesteryear. Peter Stone explores the fascinating history and culture of this archipelago, where nature and geology provide a spectacular setting for todays tourism industry.

Volcanic Evolution of the Canary Islands Book Review:

This book 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. Hazards.. The new book 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

Biogeography and Ecology in the Canary Islands Book Review:

When asked by the General Editor to prepare a book-length treatment concerning the nature of the Canary Islands, our aims were rather ambitious. A general monograph was to be written, embracing all the disciplines of natural history applicable to these islands, and over twenty scientists were approached for contributions. However scientists are 'time machines' ; our proposed list of contents has changed a good many times. Cooporation of other authors was gained and, finally, a fairly rounded project appeared revealing different and lesser known aspects of Canary Island Nature. Since Centuries the Canary Islands have attracted the attention of travellers. Earliest reports may be traced back some two thousand years but real scientific investigation began about 1800, the time of Alexander von Humboldt and his visit to the islands; older reports are scarce, sometimes rather confusing because of geographic inaccuracies. But the 19th Century will remain as the century of fundamental explorations, connected with names such as Leopold von Buch, F. C. MacGregor, Sabin Berthelot, Philip Barker Webb, J. Viera y Clavijo, F. von Fritsch, C. Bolle, D. H. Christ, O. Simony, G. Hartung, H. Mayer etc. , all familiar and intimately connected with our knowledge of the natural history of the archipelago. Even the much criticised Ernst Haeckel has provided us with lively descriptions of his visit to one of the 'Fortunate Islands'. The 20th Century brought new interest, new fields to be explored, and new expeditions to the islands.
