Weekend for geological Alos de Balaguer
Delve into the world of Geology!
The activities around the geological phenomena that are proposed to spend the weekend are:
Activity 1: Tectonic
We describe in general the formation of the Pyrenees, with support panels and blocks diagram. While you can describe the various existing geological structures, materials conflicting specifications. I can incorporate an explanation of the general layout of the materials.
Activity 2: Paleontology
In the area there are outcrops diversosos different fossils, principally: alveolines, belemnites and ictiosaure. By topic ictiosaure can realize at the end of the stop to visit the Museum of the City of Alos.
We describe the general morphology of each of these beings. Explain the theory of fossilization, along with a block diagram. And a light comment on the position in which they are related to the folding undergone by materials containing them, establishing the chronology of fossilization. Observed in field samples from different fossil accompanied magnification.
Activity 3: Quaternary and geological hazards
Will describe the geology of the current flow of the river and the relation of Quaternary materials outcropping of ancient terraces of the River Segre. While you can describe outcrops derrubis slope, another type of materials and the difference between them. While the end of the stop can describe the different geological risks observed in the area and security measures.
Activity 4: Geomorofologia and travertine.
We describe the main geomorphological structures can be described related to the type of material, focusing particularly on the river Segre. The difference in the area where the gorge and the flat area at the entrance of the town. Finally in the area of Barranco del Prado will be observed, travertine and may explain its formation very slightly and their uses.
