Tenerife geology 2009 day 2

Tenerife geology fieldwork December 2009 - Day 2

The second day of the December 2009 trip was the section from San Miguel de Abona to Cisnera. The rocks are mainly phonolitic, with evidence of Strombolian and major Plinian eruptions, including a scoria cone with volcanic bombs, lava flows, a lava dome, pumice fall, pyroclastic flow and block and ash flow deposits. The photographs can be found on Picasa and the map for the day on Google Maps. Both can be found from links on my Google site.
