    1. Multistage collapse of eight western Canary Island landslides in the last 1.5 Ma: Sedimentological and geochemical evidence from subunits in submarine flow deposits (pages 2159–2181)

      J. E. Hunt, R. B. Wynn, P. J. Talling and D. G. Masson

      Article first published online: 15 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ggge.20138

      Key Points

      • Multiple fining-upwards sequences in deposits signify multistage landslides
      • Subunits in El Golfo and Icod landslide deposits are correlated between basins
      • Last eight flank collapses in the Canary Islands have been multistage failures
    2. Turbidite record of frequency and source of large volume (>100 km3) Canary Island landslides in the last 1.5 Ma: Implications for landslide triggers and geohazards (pages 2100–2123)

      J. E. Hunt, R. B. Wynn, P. J. Talling and D. G. Masson

      Article first published online: 8 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ggge.20139

      Key Points

      • Madeira Abyssal Plain volcaniclastic deposits represent Canary Island landslides
      • Turbidite composition and age correlate deposits to known landslides
      • Landslides correlate to periods of volcanism and warmer climate conditions

    1. Long-term (17 Ma) turbidite record of the timing and frequency of large flank collapses of the Canary Islands (pages 3322–3345)

      J. E. Hunt, P. J. Talling, M. A. Clare, I. Jarvis and R. B. Wynn

      Article first published online: 20 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2014GC005232

      Key Points

      • A 17.0 Ma record of Canary Island landslides exists in the Madeira Abyssal Plain
      • This landslide record provides information on island provenance, age and volume
      • There is no statistical correlation between landslide occurrence and climate
    2. The morphology of insular shelves as a key for understanding the geological evolution of volcanic islands: Insights from Terceira Island (Azores) (pages 1801–1826)

      R. Quartau, A. Hipólito, C. Romagnoli, D. Casalbore, J. Madeira, F. Tempera, C. Roque and F. L. Chiocci

      Article first published online: 22 MAY 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2014GC005248

      Key Points

      • Shelf morphologies are good proxies for late Quaternary's island evolution
      • Guidelines to interpret island evolution based on shelf morphology are provided
      • Improved understanding of Terceira geological evolution is achieved
