all data taken from..

i wonder what data would be on the three charts 'not working' at the moment?

in the region of the cliffs has been the greatest uplift, with less and less uplift the further north east you go

now, what we need to find out is what is the failure strength of erupted and cooled basalt, in contact with the material which was on the slope when it was erupted on top of it.

we know the slope below those cliffs is 25 degrees steep and that these cliffs are one of three in the Canaries KNOWN to be at risk of collapse.

how much more uplift will it take, or will it go when DEFLATION begins? there are some incredible forces at work here

i would think it's pretty much certain that should the eruption actually come up through those cliffs it will dislodge them?

Earlier this year we read in the other thread about how the Canaries have sometimes changed what type of volcano they are. In fact, some of the lava that erupted from Hierro last year was decidely NOT basaltic material but instead, a hybrid of at least two types of magma. This is also probably the reason there were so many underground explosions going for a month or two...the magmas weren't getting along down there :)
