Magnetostratigraphic dating is one of the several paleomagnetism tools, being a field that was essential to develop the tectonic plate’s theory.

The European Geosciences Union General Assembly is back. The 2021 EGU edition will be held again online from 19 to 30 April.

Agustín Lobo took part in the second edition of the workshop " Hyperspectral Sensing meets Machine Learning and Pattern Analysis (HyperMLPA)" which was held online during March 24-26 as a part of the scheduled scientific program of the Spectro Expo 2021. Lobo gave the talk entitled "Machine-Learning Classification Of Proximal Conventional And Hyper-Spectral Imagery" in which the researcher explained the work developed in collaboration with the company Lithica for the iTarg3T project.

Seismic data might be used, under certain conditions, as a useful proxy to monitor the level of human activity in urban environments, providing similar details to those offered by other common mobility indicators, according to a new study made by researchers from Geosciences Barcelona - CSIC (GEO3BCN-CSIC). Seismologist Jordi Díaz is the leading author of the study that has been published recently in the journal “Solid Earth”. Mario Ruiz (GEO3BCN-CSIC) and José Antonio Jara, from the from Institut Cartográfic i Geologic de Catalunya (ICGC) are the other authors of the study.

After nearly one month and a half of intense seismic activity caused by the moving magma beneath the surface, Galdungaladur volcano erupted last 19th march. The new eruptive fissure emitting lava and gases was formed in the southernmost part of the Reyjkjanes peninsula, 40km away from Reykjavic. Researchers from the University of Iceland, who are also members of the EVE project (European Volcanoes Early Warning System), led by Geosciences Barcelona (GEO3BCN_CSIC), have been closely monitoring the pre-eruption process of Galdungaladur volcano and its unrest phase. This eruption has provided a perfect scenario for testing in real-time the different forecasting tools that are being developed by the EVE project.

SeisDARE (Seismic Data Repository) is the name of the new repository that includes seismic datasets acquired over the last four decades in the Iberian Peninsula and Morocco. These datasets have been compiled and identified in a detailed and systematic way. The features of this new repository, which hosts more than twenty seismic projects, are presented and described in a new article published in the journal Earth System Science Data first-authored by Irene DeFelipe, researcher of GEO3BCN-CSIC.

‘Antropoceno, reproducción de capital y comunismo’ es el título del nuevo libro publicado por el investigador de Geociencias Barcelona (GEO3BCN-CSIC), Carles Soriano, en el que realiza un análisis crítico del concepto acuñado en el año 2000 por Paul J. Crutzen y Eugene Stoermer. El nuevo trabajo de Soriano sostiene la tesis de que el Antropoceno o “crisis del Antropoceno” tiene su origen y desarrollo en el modo de producción capitalista basado en la reproducción del capital.

Paricutin eruption started unexpectedly on the 20th of February 1943. Pyroclastic material emerged for the first time through a fissure that appeared in the middle of a cornfield near the villages of San Juan Parangaricutiro and Angahuan. The eruption of this monogenetic volcano lasted 9 years and 11 days. The eruption built a cone of 240 meters in height and formed a lava field of 25 km2. Although there were no human casualties, lava flows occurred during each different eruptive phase buried two villages: Paricutin and San Juan Parangaricutiro.

Geosciences Barcelona (GEO3BCN-CSIC) offers four research proposals within the JAE Intro 2021 call. JAE Intro programme offers grants at CSIC centres (CSIC-owned, mixed or partner units) aimed at university students interested in starting a research career.

Juan Alcalde, researcher at GEOBCN-CSIC, gave the first lecture in a series of lectures scheduled in the XXXth Industry and Minig Week, a annual event organized by Escuela de Ingeniería Minera e Industrial de Almadén (Universidad de Castilla-la Mancha). The lecture was held online last 9th of March. Alcalde introduced the Carbon capture and storage (CCS) and underground Hydrogen storage for energetic usage, both techniques are likely to be important tools in fighting against climate change.
