The present-day relief shows a polygenic nature, combining fluvial erosion with other prior erosive processes. The analysis of slopes and watersheds suggests the existence of an active instability process during the Quaternary. However, the anomalies of the drainage system are related with the differential strength which shows basic dykes against erosion. Some geomorphologic features suggest the occurrence of an old great landslide affecting the slopes of Taganana village. This instability will be a stage of the retreatment of the slopes which occurs in a volcanic island along time, in both emerged and submerged flanks.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/71956||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-319-53498-5_55||Source:||Advancing Culture Of Living With Landslides, Vol 2: Advances In Landslide Science, p. 481-487|
