Abstract
Recent studies demonstrate that Tenerife has undergone large lateral collapses. This has led to the suggestion that the Las Cañadas caldera, one of the best exposed calderas in the world, is the result of lateral collapse. We have tested this idea using the available structural, stratigraphic, volcanological, and geochronological data. We conclude that the Las Cañadas caldera is the result of a complex sequence of vertical collapse events associated with a long history of phonolitic explosive ...
