A new book about the Geology of the Canary Islands


Valentin Troll, professor in petrology at the Department of Earth Sciences, has just co-authored the book The Geology of the Canary Islands. Here, you can read the publishers interview with the authors and also access a free chapter of the book! 

The book is written by Valentin Troll together with his long-time colleague professor emeritus Juan-Carlos Carracedo from Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The authors provide an excellent overview of the geology of the Canary Islands, but it also serves as a nice travel guide for the keen tourist who wants to experience the islands beyond the beaches. 

Here's a link to the publishers interview with the authors, and here's the free chapter, available until October 31.
