International Workshop 50th Anniversary Teneguía Eruption

Fuencaliente de La Palma (Canary Islands)
22-26 october 2021

This International Workshop will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Teneguia eruption (26th Oct. – 18th Nov. 1971): the last subaerial volcanic eruption in the Canary Islands. It is a timely opportunity to participate in a discussion between a range of stakeholders about how we can better manage living with volcanism toward the goals of reducing risk and maximising opportunities. Delivered both in-person and online, topical sessions will focus upon research related to

  • Volcano observation and monitoring from ground
  • The dynamics of magmatic-volcanic processes
  • Social sciences applied to Volcanology
  • Volcanic hazard and risk assessment
  • Education and outreach for reducing volcanic risk
  • Communication strategies for reducing volcanic risk
  • Geotourism in volcanic areas
  • Volcanoes and geothermal energy
  • Volcanic crisis management in active volcanic islands

For those wishing to attend in person, we must stress that it is essential to reserve your place by first contacting us here: as capacity for the venue and fieldtrips is limited. No limitations for those who are planning virtual participation. All the talks will be broadcast by streaming through Facebook Live.
