  1. This is a link to the national Radio & TV for the Canarias. Handy for those who speak spanish and would rather listen that have to read first think in the morning to find out whats happening.

    This is a link to the Water and Air analysis reports

    Feel free to include or bin as you wish!

  2. @ Carl
    Haven’t forgotten the booklist – just got to find some of them!!
    @ All
    The books I’ll list date from my college days, so most are quite old but can be obtained 2nd hand etc from such as Abe Books
    I’ll also attempt a ‘basic/intermediate/advanced’ categorisation to guide!!!

  3. good combined webcam mirror with 4 webcams

    you can save images…
    And post live ones:

    If dont see, press F5 to refresh.
    (sure any can save it each any seconds and create a timelapse..)

  4. Wow! This can be one particular of the most helpful blogs We’ve ever arrive across on this subject. Basically Fantastic. I’m also a specialist in this topic so I can understand your effort.

  5. Access of seismic and spectral charts of IGN El Hierro seismic stations:

    No direct links have been found yet, but the information can be obtained starting at the IGN page http://www.01.ign.es/ign/resources/volcanologia/HIERRO.html

    Click the link “Forma de onda CHIE” and you get the seismic chart of CHIE station with the URL http://www.ign.es/ign/head/volcaSenalesAnterioresDia.do?nombreFichero=CHIE_2012-07-08&ver=s&estacion=CHIE&Anio=2012&Mes=07&Dia=08&tipo=1

    By manually changing this URL you can access the other stations.
    Replacing CHIE with Corc (twice!) gives the URL leading to CORC station (Orchilla).
    NB all names are case sensitive!

    CORC – Corc
    CTAB – Ctab
    CJUL – Cjul
    CTAN – Ctan
    CCUM – Ccum
    CMCL – Cmcl
    CRST – Crst
    CTIG – Ctig

    Changing tipo=1 into tipo=2 gives the URL to the associated spectral chart.
    Changing the date (twice!) in the URL leads you to older data.

    (This is the map you get when clicking the Info link [+] in the list of recent quakes.)
