Project description

The 'Analysis of Basins and Environmental Geology' research group carries out its activity in the field of stratigraphy, sedimentology, chemostratigraphy, biostratigraphy and basin analysis. Recently, this research group is developed a topic related with the valuing and assessing the geodiversity and geological heritage and their applications to natural protected areas management and the sustainable land use. The results of its research are widely applicable in fields as important as groundwater, energy resources, oil, gas, coal or industrial minerals, land use, or management of natural resources.

Within the framework of the present Expression of Interest, two main research lines are offered by Prof. Nieto to prospective MSCA-IF candidates:

  1. Analysis of geochemical and sedimentological proxies that denote environmental changes of different magnitude from Jurassic and / or Cretaceous materials. 
  2. Study of the geodiversity of a territory, its assessment, its usefulness as an indicator of environmental change and the applicability of its knowledge in the sustainable management of the territory.
