Multidisciplinary Approach to the Study of Holocene Flank Eruptions in Tenerife (Canarias)
A multidisciplinary approach has been applied in a study of eruptive fissures on the slopes of the main volcanic edifices in Tenerife. Our work concentrated on the youngest portion of these cones, including their ages and distribution. Detailed fieldwork was performed, producing a 1:5000-scale geological map of volcanic deposits and structural features. Thus far, an area of about 10 km2 has been surveyed. Sampling in the field was aimed at obtaining age constraints for the main volcanic record over the last 8000 year by means of the archaeomagnetic method. In addition, petrochemical and rheological analyses are currently underway.
