about

This book contains the results of a 9 year (1995-2004) investigation of the Canary Islands Exclusive Economic Zone, using state of the art technology. The coverage includes a multibeam survey demonstrating the magnitude of catastrophic failures of the Canary Islands; a comparison of the morphology of the Canary Islands with Hawaii; evaluation of hydrothermal activity associated with Mesozoic salt diapirs; and many more articles.

Juan Acosta is the main researcher for the project of which the results are presented in this book.   Peter Clift has done his research and teaching at MIT, WHOI, and is currently affiliated with the University of Aberdeen. He has served and is currently Editor for several journals, amongst others Marine Geophysical Researches.
