What is a Tornillo?
Tornillo Scientific is named after a type of low-frequency volcanic earthquake. Tornillo, which means ‘screw’ in Spanish, was first used to describe seismic events with a screw-like shape observed at Geleras Volcano, Colombia. Tornillo events are likely caused by the movement of magma. Tornillo is also a small town in Texas, and the name of several species of Prosopis trees.
