Marine observation at the XII International School of Astrobiology


The search for environments with astrobiological interest can be done in many ways and in different places. One of the practices of the students of the XII International School of Astrobiology has consisted of a marine observation with that objective.

On the Camel Beach, in Santander, very close to the Palacio de la Magdalena, has taken place one of the practices of the XII International School of Astrobiology «Josep Comas i Solà». Accompanied by the speakers speakers, the students of the School have had the opportunity to enjoy one of the most fascinating environments of the Cantabrian coast from the geological point of view. The intention of the practice has been to put in context the theme of the School and try to define the habitability zones on the beach based on their geological environment. The zones with different geothermodynamic contribution have been drawn up to understand the complexity of a dynamic living system. Finally, the soil stratification structures have been shown and the fossil remains identified in the rocks.

This activity is a way to get the School out of the classrooms and to make it dynamic so that both the theoretical learning and the practical coexist and provide a much more complete and versatile training to students.

Tomorrow, on the beach of Zumaya, another of the activities outside the classrooms of the School will take place with the contemplation of the KT limit and the complex geological formations of the area.
