dc.description.abstract Shield volcanoes such as Hawaii, the Canary Islands, and the Galapagos are known to erode rapidly after they become extinct. This erosion can lead to massive landslides both on land and in the water. Volcan Ecuador is a volcano that is located on the northwestern tip of Isabela Island has experienced a collapse sometime in the last 100000 yBP that caused the volcano to lose it westernmost half. The goal of this project was to determine the volume of material that was transported to the sea during the collapse of this volcano, and from that information, further characterize the type of collapse that occurred. en
