About this item

Spain's Almeria exhibits superb structural geology (especially the fault system). It also includes a complete Neogene sedimentary sequence (itself rare), involving an enormous range of sedimentary environments and classic dry land geomorphology. Exposure of the sedimentary sequences is excellent. The area is spectacular and the landform assemblage includes a wide range of erosional and depositional landscapes. Furthermore, the region enables linkages to be made between the several disciplines of geodynamics. The Neogene sequence cannot be interpreted without considering the evolving tectonics, nor the contemporaneous geomorphology. Neither may the geomorphology be understood without considering the modern landscape as a development from the Neogene tectonic and sedimentary sequences. This guide is an essential companion for geologists and physical geographers visiting this province in southeast Spain, to view its range of unique features, made famous as a spectacular location for a host of popular films. GPS coordinates are provided for the locations discussed. (Series: Classic Geology in Europe - Vol. 12) [Subject: Geology, Geomorphology, Earth Science]
