The current eruption of La Palma has no name has no name and the Canary Islands Volcanological Institute (Involcan) believes that they should be the palm trees that choose and name this eruption. Since the Institute dare to suggest the name of Tajoogaite for this eruption taking into account the aboriginal legacy and the place where this eruptive process began, but insists that the last word have the inhabitants of the island.
Through your Facebook account, the Involcan recalls that today October 12 is celebrated the tenth anniversary of Tagoro's eruption (2011-2012), one of the 17 historical eruptions of Canary Islands. For some the submarine eruption of iron began on October 10, 2011, but a strong and clear discoloration of sea water detected on October 12, 2011 was the clearest observation of the start of this underwater eruption as a result of a strong interaction Among the acidic volcanic gases and the sea water of the alkaline nature responsible for generating a palette of colored in sea without paraling.
The eruption of Tagoro (2011-2012) lasted 145 days, the second largest of the historical eruptions of the Canary Islands, and the total volume of material thrown by this underwater eruption amounted to 329 million cubic meters.
Some people ask the involcan why celebrating the ephemeride of a volcanic eruption that occurred in Canarias, especially when many people associate volcanic activity as a source of destruction. As explained from the Institute, thanks to the existing magmatic activity at this point on the planet and the innumerable amount of eruptions that occurred in these islands over the world, Canada has been built.
On the other hand, scientists are aware that volcanic activity can be a source of destruction, especially for the communities that live in the vicinity of an eruptive process, but clarify that the time intervals in which volcanic activity could be a source destruction is much less than the time intervals in which volcanic activity acts as a source of construction, contributing to the socio-economic development of the communities that inhabit volcanic territories.
