The most northwestern of the Canary Islands, Spain, is La Palma (Spanish pronunciation:[la ?palma]), also San Miguel de La Palma. With an area of 706 square kilometres, La Palma is the fifth biggest of the seven Canaries. It has a global headcount of approximately 86,000, of which 18,000 (2003 data) are in the capitol Santa Cruz de la Palma and approximately 20,000 (2004 data) in Los Llanos de Aridane.

The Palma has the state of a "sister city" with El Dorado Hills, California. The highest peak is the Roque de los Muchachos at 2,426 meters, which overlooks only the summits of the Teide Massiv on Tenerife among the summits of the Canary Islands. 1815 the famous Geologue Léopold von Buch came to the Canary Islands.

By visiting Tenerife, where he attended the Las Cañadas calderas, and later in La Palma, where he attended the Taburiente calderas, the spanisch term for kettle or large saucepan - "caldera" - was added to the geologic world. At the centre of the islands is the Taburiente Valley Park, one of four Canary Islands nature reserves.

Like the other Canaries, La Palma is a vulcanic isle of the seas. It is almost 7 km above the Atlantic coast. The geographical situation of La Palma is a consequence of the evolution of the island. Its highest summits are over 2,400 meters (7,874 ft) above sealevel, and its basis is almost 4,000 meters (13,123 ft) below sail.

North of La Palma is the Taburiente cave, 9 km wide and 1,500 metres high. It is only the Barranco de las Angustias ("Gorge of Fear") gorge that runs into the inner area of the calendar, which is a protected area.

The Cumbre Nueva crest stretches from the Caldera de Taburiente to the southward direction - the New Crest, which despite its name is older than the Cumbre Vieja - Old Crest. Cumbre Vieja, a vulcanic crest made up of a large number of volcanoes of volcanoes called Cumbre Vieja and Sciori.

Cumbre Vieja is still alive, with the last breakout in 1971 at the Teneguía chimney, situated at the south end of Cumbre Vieja - Punta de Fuencaliente (the point of the hot well). Behind Punta de Fuencaliente, Cumbre Vieja extends to the south as a U-boat-Vulcano.

La Palma, like all Canary Islands, was initially created as a sea mount by subsea vulcanic activities. At the moment La Palma is next to Tenerife the most actively vulcanic of the Canary Islands and was founded three to four million years ago. Approximately half a million years ago the Taburiente vulcano crumbled with a huge landslip and became the Caldera de Taburiente.

Since then, a part of the Seeberg in the north of the caldera has been uncovered by soil degradation. There have been seven outbreaks since the Cumbre Vieja - all on the Cumbre Vieja: The 1949 outbreak, which began on June 24, 1949 on Duraznero and July 8, 1949 on Cumbre Vieja, was accompanied by an epicenter seismic event near Jedy.

3 ] There is no evidence that the rift has entered the building of the lava and due to the lack of Minas Galerias (water tunnels) within the Cumbre Vieja there is no way to examine the inner structures of the flanks. On 12 October 2000, two British Broadcasting Corporation BBC Horizon surveyors (Day and McGuire) quoted this rift as evidence that half of Cumbre Vieja had been moving towards the Atlantic (Day et al.; 1999,[5] and Ward and Day, 2001,[6]).

The postulates that this was due to the pressures created by the ascending magma heat in the structures of the isle. You suspected that in a possible outbreak in the near distant past, the west face of Cumbre Vieja could slip into the sea with a weight of about 1.5x1015kg.

It is possible that this could then produce a huge surge, which they called a "mega tsunami" around 650 meters (2,133 feet )-900 meters (2,953 feet) high in the island area. It would flood much of the east coast of North America about seven inches later, many of the West Indies in the Carribean and the north coast of South America between six and eight inches later.

It is estimated that the tidal wave of maybe 50 meters (164 feet) or higher will cause severe damage along the coastline. The modelling indicates that the tidal wave could flood up to 25 km upstream, according to the terrain. You explain that you have modeled the worst-case scenarios, and as a conclusion you say: "A prospective breakdown has the power to cause a tidal wave that could destroy the US eastern seaboard and other places....".

The Tsunami Society (Pararas-Carayannis, 2002[7]) issued a declaration in 2002 stating: ".... We want to stop the panic-mongering from these unsubstantiated reports....". Cumbre Vieja's allegation that half of Cumbre Vieja fell 4 metres during the 1949 outbreak is false and is refuted by hard-cover. There was no search for proof or it was shown that there is a line of fracture that separates one "block" of La Palma from the other half.

However, the 2011 tohuko-tohunami spread to Hawaii and the California coastline, a much greater range than a transatlantic overpass. A submarine outbreak that began in September 2011 on the southern side of the El Hierro Isles led to further speculations about the potential for a megatunami. 12 ][13] Since each islet of the arcipelago is a separate building, often several dozen kilometers from the neighbouring islet, it is geographically unacceptable for one islet to be affected by the other.

Situated about 100 km southwest of La Palma, over 100 km southwest of Tenerife. The Palma has a temperate and persistent temperate subarid temperate climatic zone, known as the SSH in the Köppen climatic rating, which has a significant influence on the marine climat.

It is part of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife area. There are 14 communities on the island: Plantanos (or bananas) are cultivated all over the islands with many handfarms on the west side of the islands in the Los Llanos de Aridane area. The Strelitzia (bird of paradise) produces blossoms, orange, avocados and grape (which grows well in vulcanic soil).

Fishers from Santa Cruz, Tazacorte and Puerto Naos are catching seafood for the locals' market. The Palma has a rich flora, among them several endemics. Despite the deforestation of large areas, some of the deciduous, moderately wooded cloudforests or laurels (Laurisilva) have been preserved in the highlands of La Palma, where Lauraceae varieties such as Laurus àzorica and Ocotea Foetens are a typical feature.

It is a relict of the Pliocene sub-tropical woods that once covered the isle. Canary pines (Pinus canariensis) are found in all the Canary Islands in the west, but are particularly common in La Palma. Situated in the pinewoods are two recently found and highly infrequent La Palma endemics:

Savarycytisus superranubius, a white-flowered gorse known as Retama del Teide, comes from La Palma and Tenerife and is limited to the alpine/subalpine habitat found only on these two isles. Just like Tenerife, La Palma has its own cyclamen, Viola Palmenis. It is endemically located in La Palma and the highest variety of the genera, which is over 4 m high. It is related to its relatives the" tower of jewels" which is found with its own sub-types in the subalpsic area of Tenerife and La Palma.

A branching bush with several smaller, deep bluish inflorescences, is another Tenerife isle. Asteraceae is a small genus of daisies that includes several La Palma endemites such as Sonchus Palmenis, Argyranthemum hairarytheum pericallis and Cheirolophus Svenii. There are several indigenous or indigenous species in La Palma, the::

Coturnix gomerae, now deserted. During the period of colonisation in Europe, the Canaries were populated by indigenous Canarians, together known as Guanches, although the inhabitants of La Palma are more known as Auaritas (see Canaries in the pre-colonial period). Her name for La Palma was Benahoare.

The Canary Islands disappeared after the invasion of La Palma by either being slaughtered, selling into servitude or being accepted into the Hispanic people. The Canary Islands are thought to have been known to the Phoenicians and Greeks, but the first testimonies come from the ancient author Pliny the Elder, who cited Juba II of Numidia, but Juba's works were later destroyed.

1404 the Spanish began the invasion of the isles. Although the first landings on La Palma took place in 1405, it took until 1493 and several bloodshed fights until the last local opposition was over. Alonso Fernández de Lugo, the conquerer of La Palma, was the last to defeat Tanausu, the last ruler of the isle.

The area known as Acero (Caldera de Taburiente) was under his rule. The attack on Tanausu took place after he agreed to a ceasefire organised by Fernández de Lugo and Juan de Palma, a Guanche who was a Christian convert and a Tanausu family. During the next two hundred years the villages on La Palma became wealthy, as the islands were used as trade posts on the way to the New World.

The Palma has welcomed migrants from Castile, Mallorca, Andalusia, Portugal and Catalonia. It is mainly Latin-Catholic and has been known since 1676 for the feast of the Lustrales de la Bajada de la Virgen de las Nieves, which has had a long tradition since the times of the Bishop of the Canary Islands, Bartolomé García Ximénez.

From her Shrine (in a rolling area on the edge of Santa Cruz de La Palma), the picture of the Virgin is taken and guided through the town of Santa Cruz, and the celebration lasts almost two week before she is brought back. Virgen des Schnees is the protectress of La Palma.

A lot of ladies on the islands are called "Nieves". There is a good asphalt track, about 180 km (112 mi) around the isle.

There are several buses connecting the most important places on the islands. There' s a street leading from Los Llanos de Aridane to the capitol of the Santa Cruz de La Palma archipelago (simply called Santa Cruz by the locals). The airport of La Palma operates the airport and several carriers serve the islands.

In the town of Sta. Cruz there is also a boat connection to and from the isle. La Palma's most well-known buildings are the Galeria mines ( "water tunnels"), which transport its waters from the springs in the mountain to towns, hamlets and farmhouses (mainly botanical gardens). The Palma is supplied almost entirely by the stratocumulus at 1,200 metres (3,937 feet )-1,600 metres (5,249 feet) height by the predominant northeastern tradewind, the stratocumulus clove.

Because of the position of the isle and the altitude of its peaks, about 2,400 meters above sealevel, several overseas observation stations have been established on the Roque de los Muchachos. Often the top vantage point of the vulcano is a cloudy ocean that covers the east part of the isle.
