Fieldwork in Physical Geography, Vera basin, southeast Spain

Figure 1: Fieldwork in Physical Geography, Vera basin, southeast Spain. Fieldwork is basic for Bachelor and Master studies in Geography. In April 2006 fieldwork focused palaeoecological natural archives as fluvial sediments, soils and travertines. The exposed section shows an Early Pleistocene aggradation sequence of palaeosoils, alluvial and eolian deposits in the Antas river catchment
