This book provides a brief summary of the volcanic evolution of the Canary Islands with emphasis on Gran Canaria.

The Canary Islands are one of the major and geologically most diverse and fascinating chains of oceanic islands. Towering Pico de Teide (3718 m asl) is the third highest volcano in the oceans. Major highlights include the impressive sector collapses that have left huge scars in the flanks especially of the younger islands Tenerife, El Hierro and La Palma.
