Virtual Field Trip from

Virtual Field Trip to Tenerife, Canary Islands - Volcanology

It is important that you access this field trip on a laptop or desktop PC.

Context: These virtual field locations were written for 2nd year Geology students at the University of Derby. They replace parts of our usual 7-day winter field trip toTenerife during the 2020-21 Covid pandemic. The remainder of the virtual field trip is being delivered through our Blackboard virtual learning environment in March 2021, including sessions delivered live from the field by GeoTenerife.
