Un estudio multidisciplinar liderado por el Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) y la Universidad de Barcelona propone reimpulsar el desarrollo en España de los procesos de captura y almacenamiento de dióxido de carbono (CO2) mediante una estrategia denominada en inglés de hubs & clusters. Un hub estaría formado por un grupo de emisores de CO2 cercanos, mientras que un cluster estaría constituido por ese grupo de fuentes más un almacén subterráneo apropiado para sus emisiones. Los autores del trabajo, que ha sido publicado en la revista Applied Energy, estiman que con la adopción de esta estrategia se podrían dejar de emitir a la atmósfera hasta 69 millones de toneladas de CO2 al año, lo que equivale a un 21% de las emisiones anuales de España.

María José Jurado, researcher from GEO3BCN-CSIC, has been appointed by the European Commission as a new member of the Operational expert group of the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials. Jurado will be a member of this working group on behalf of the CSIC until next 2023.

The Cadi-Moixeró Natural Park has edited the new field guide entitled "El Vulcanisme al Parc Natural del Cadí-Moixeró". Joan Martí, researcher at GEO3BCN-CSIc is one of the authors of the book, along with Llorenç Planagumà, geologist and environmental specialist, and Joan Casòliva, geologist and technician at the natural park.

By studying the signals of a dozen of marsquakes registered by the SEIS broadband seismometer deployed by the NASA's InSight mission, an international team of scientists has been able to determine the inner structure of Mars. The results of this research are published in three papers in the journal "Science" offering new details of the size of the planet's core and the structure and thickness of its crust and mantle by analyzing seismic signals. Martin Schimmel, a researcher at GEO3BCN-CSIC and collaborator of the team of the Institute du Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP) coordinated by Philippe Lognonné, has co-authored two of the three released papers.

GEO3BCN-CSIC researcher, María-Gema Llorens, has been recently appointed as a new member of the Cryospheric Sciences section of the Spanish Commission of Geodesy and Geophysics (CEGG), a section that was recently created and which is headed by Francisco Navarro, professor at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

It is essential to quit using traditional fossil fuels and start implementing sustainable methods to reduce pollution. To achieve this goal, subsoil provides us with opportunities. Using geothermal energy and underground hydrogen storage are two options located inside the Earth that can decarbonize the energy industry and mitigate climate change.

La Agencia Estatal de Investigación (AEI) ha seleccionado tres proyectos de investigación liderados por personal investigador de Geociencias Barcelona (GEO3BCN-CSIC) para ser financiados con los fondos de la convocatoria 2020 del Plan Nacional que concede el Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación.

María José Jurado, researcher at GEO3BCN-CSIC, was one of the invited speakers of the 2-days event "CSIC: get ready for Horizon Europe!" organized by the CSIC Deputy Vice-Presidency for International Relationships between June 29th and 30th. This thematic event, which was held both online and in-person, was aimed at showing the main novelties and new opportunities brought by "Horizon Europe", the new research and innovation funding program launched by the European Union (2021-2027). Jurado offered the talk entitled "How to bring your research results to the market" on 3rd June.

El investigador de Geociencias Barcelona (GEO3BCN-CSIC) Joan Martí Molist y las investigadoras Olaya Dorado García y Marta López Saavedra realizaron un trabajo de campo en la isla de Tenerife a principios de junio en el que recogieron muestras de depósitos volcánicos. Durante 10 días, el equipo investigador visitó distintos lugares de interés geológico como la caldera de Las Cañadas, con los estratovolcanes Teide y Pico Viejo, y diversos afloramientos del sur de la isla, como las Bandas del Sur.

Cada junio la ONU celebra el mes del Medio Ambiente como una llamada de atención para cuidar los ecosistemas, reducir las emisiones contaminantes y hacer un uso responsable de los recursos naturales. En este contexto, la geología ambiental, que aplica el conocimiento geológico a la investigación del medio ambiente, ayuda a diagnosticar y reducir los problemas de contaminación, minimizar la degradación ambiental y ofrecer alternativas sostenibles.

The 10th edition of the Spanish Geological Congress will be held in Vitoria from July 5-7 2021. The congress is fostered by the Spanish Geological Society and organized by the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EH). The meeting should have been held in 2020 but it was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The current edition will be organized as an hybrid meeting, allowing in person and online participation. There are 20 scheduled sessions and symposiums, apart from several plenary sessions, short workshops, and field trips.
