Abstract: When a volcano that has been dormant for many centuries begins to show possible signs of reawakening, scientists and civil authorities rightly should be concerned about the possibility that the volcanic unrest might culminate in renewed eruptive activity. Such was the situation for Teide volcano, located on Tenerife in the Canary Islands, when a mild seismic swarm during April-July 2004 garnered much attention and caused public concern. However, that attention completely ignored the fact that the seismic recordings of the swarm were due to a much improved monitoring system rather than due to an actual event of alarming magnitude or extent.
Description: Insightful reviews by Robert I. Tilling and Chris Stillman greatly improved this contri-bution and are gratefully acknowledged.
