Description

From Imaggeo.egu.eu: Basaltic cinders blanket the landscape, forming aeolian dunes and ripples,to a back drop of basaltic lava flows and cones. The area is unspoilt by human activity apart from limited roads that allows bus tours around the Timanfaya National Park, Lanzarote, protecting the delicate ecosystem as it re-establishes itself after the eruption. http://imaggeo.egu.eu/view/1497/
