Resum
Catastrophic failures of volcano flanks represent one of the most hazardous geological phenomena. These immense mass movements originate either by increasing the destabilizing forces (driving forces) or by reducing the strength of the materials involved, or both. The study of large volcanic landslides on Tenerife suggests that the presence of weak residual soils (palaeosols) in combination with the pre-existence of deep, narrow canyons created by fluvial erosion, have played a fundamental role i...
