Part III - Spain

© H.Wood

The final field trip of the Earth Sciences degree, during the Easter holidays of Part III is to the Betic mountain range in southern Spain (Almeria), a region with exceptionally varied geology in an active plate-boundary setting. There is something spectacular for all tastes: metamorphic basements, overlying reefs, evaporites and turbidite basins, volcanic centres, and major fault zones.  The area provides excellent geological revision in a memorable environment.
