Just what is occurring inside Mount Teide?

IT sits there so serenely, overseeing our lives here in Tenerife. But have you ever wondered what on earth is going on inside Mount Teide?

Well, we will soon know because a group of scientists are working on an incredible project to unravel the facts.

The boffins, from the Canaries Institute of Vulcanology (Involcan), Tokyo University's Earthquake Research Institute (ERI) and Italy's National Nuclear Physics Institute (INFN), are putting their heads together to find out.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
