Description of the Institute:

The Instituto Geológico y Minero de España (IGME) is a Public Research Institution specialized in Earth Sciences, assuming the role of Geological Survey of Spain. It belongs to the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities.

IGME’s activity is focused in Geology and Geophysics, Hydrogeology, Geological Resources and Mining, Geoenvironmental Sciences and related Technologies. Interdisciplinary institutional relations are kept with other areas of knowledge, contributing to the best understanding of the territory and of the processes that form and modify it, to the sustainable use of its resources and the conservation of the geological and hydrogeological heritage.

Its major research lines include, between others: Geological Hazards, Groundwater sustainable management, Soil contamination, Mineral Resources and Environmental impact of Mining, Global Change effects reduction, 3D Geological modelling.

The Central Office is located in Madrid, but there are 12 Territorial Units in different regions. There is also a delegation in Luanda (Angola).

Description of the project:

Hazards of historical mafic eruptions in the Canary Islands.

Volcanic eruptions occurred every 25-30 years in the Canary Islands, one of the main touristic destinies for European citizens. The goal of this project is to reconstruct the historical eruptions occurred in this archipelago and inferred their hazards. Thus, it is necessary to establish the eruptive sequences and the affected area for each hazard. This work will be based in field work and the analysis of the historical chronicles. The results will help to define probable scenarios during volcanic unrest and decision making.

The project will be conducted in Canarias Headquarters (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) where the staff has a proven experience in conducting research on different Earth Science topics at international level, and will offer all necessary elements to ensure a successful development of the project in a friendly and stimulating environment.
