Hotspot volcanism close to a passive continental margin: the Canary Islands
The Canarian Archipelago is a group of volcanic islands on a slow-moving oceanic plate, close to a continental margin. The origins of the archipelago are controversial: a hotspot or mantle plume, aExpand

Cumbre Vieja Volcano -- Potential collapse and tsunami at La Palma, Canary Islands
Geological evidence suggests that during a future eruption, Cumbre Vieja Volcano on the Island of La Palma may experience a catastrophic failure of its west flank, dropping 150 to 500 km³ of rockExpand

Giant Quaternary landslides in the evolution of La Palma and El Hierro, Canary Islands
In the past, large morphological escarpments in the Canaries have been generally related to explosive and/or erosive processes. Recent onshore and offshore investigations drastically changed thisExpand

Linking continental-slope failures and climate change: Testing the clathrate gun hypothesis
It has been suggested that the release of clathrates rather than expansion of wetlands is the primary cause of the rapid increases observed in the ice-core atmospheric methane record during theExpand

A past giant lateral collapse and present-day flank instability of Fogo, Cape Verde Islands
Fogo island is a large and extremely steepsided oceanic island volcano in the Cape Verde archipelago. It has a large (ca. 9 km across) east facing summit collapse structure, the Monte AmareloExpand

Late Pleistocene submarine mass movements: occurrence and causes
Abstract An extensive study of Late Pleistocene continental slope submarine mass movements was undertaken. Twenty-six well-dated mass movements occurred during the last 45 ka BP in the North AtlanticExpand

Cosmogenic 3He exposure dating of the Quaternary basalts from Fogo, Cape Verdes: Implications for rift zone and magmatic reorganisation
We have used cosmogenic 3He to date pre- and post-collapse lava flows from southwestern Fogo, Cape Verdes, in order to date rift zone magmatic reorganisation following the lateral collapse of theExpand

Gas hydrates: past and future geohazard?
Gas hydrates are ice-like deposits containing a mixture of water and gas; the most common gas is methane. Gas hydrates are stable under high pressures and relatively low temperatures and are foundExpand

Dating of the Upper Pleistocene–Holocene volcanic activity of La Palma using the unspiked K–Ar technique
Abstract Combined unspiked K–Ar dating and detailed mapping have established the eruptive chronology of the Cumbre Vieja volcano in the Canary islands. The CV volcano is a large polygenetic volcanoExpand
