It is exactly a month since the ground began to tremble on La Palma ahead of the volcanic eruption that, just a week later, would wreak destruction on a large part of the island.

On 11 September, a team of scientists from Spain’s National Geographic Institute (IGN) travelled to the Canary Island to monitor the volcano and there they remain, at the forefront of the action.

There is still no sign that indicates that the end of the eruption is near. While the advance of the original lava flow from the Cumbre Vieja volcano slows down, the new lava flow generated by the partial collapse of the cone at the weekend is more fluid and is advancing more rapidly towards the Perdido beach area, where a new delta of volcanic material could be formed in the sea.
