Como estamos tan apasionados por los volcanes y el mundo de la volcanología, hoy os proponemos un viaje por los volcanes peninsulares, sí has oído bien.
¿Pero qué locura es esta?
¿Qué te parece si te cuento que tenemos volcanes en Girona, Valencia, Castellón, Murcia, Ciudad Real y Almería? Afortunadamente este volcanismo ocurrió ya hace un tiempo. Concretamente entre unos 22 millones de años durante el Mioceno hasta hace tan solo 10.000años! Image
Cada día vamos a hacer un recorrido por la Península desde el volcanismo más antiguo hasta el más moderno, donde podremos observar los diferentes tipos de erupciones, edificios, depósitos y lo que es más significativo, su variedad composicional.

#Hydronym and #hydronomastics both derive from Ancient #Greek ὕδωρ / húdōr (water) + ὄνομα / ónoma (name). The Greek island of Skiatho...
#Hydronyms tend to outlast other #toponyms, even when new #languages and cultures displace earlier ones.

#England, #EastAnglia, #Essex, and #Sussex are named for the #Angles and #Saxons; but #Trent, #Ouse, #Thames, #Severn, and #Avon are older #Celtic and #RomanoBritish names. A map showing the main rive...

‼️ Our new #AlarmPhone Western #Med Regional Analysis is out, 1.11.19 to 29.02.20 ‼️ It documents developments & dynamics affecting the possibility of transit via #Morocco to #EU. Read about our experiences, news from the region & political dynamics.…
Recent setbacks & successes: an #ECtHR ruling legitimised a push-back at the #Melilla border fence but on 6 Feb we held a large protest at the #Morocco - #Algeria border to commemorate dead & missing travellers. In late Feb, 8000 people marched in #Ceuta against racism.
Most of the distress calls #AlarmPhone received came from the #westernsahara route where our collaboration with the #Spanish Salvamento Marítimo was good. In the Strait of #Gibraltar or the #Alborán Sea it was more difficult: often cases were referred to the #Moroccan Navy.
