Meandering river in Kerlingarfjöll, Iceland. The river cut into the relatively soft volcanic deposits.

Fjallsárlón in southern Iceland. Ice sheets like this shaped the landscape is a large area in the northern hemisphere. In the Saalian glaciation the ice came even come The Netherlands and Germany in Europe, and covered a large part of North America.

Comments:
Under the waving yellow crops on this photo at Cap Blanc Nez up to 133 meters of fossil-rich Cretaceous sediments (Turonian / Cenomanian) are hidden beneath the surface. Microscopic algae (coccoliths) formed a hundreds of meters thick layer of lime, in a shallow and relatively warm sea, about 70 million years ago. The lime was later converted into limestone. In the Oligocene, the area was uplifted and erosion began to occur. The hard sandstone from the Jurassic (Cap Gris Nez) primarily offered much resistance. Therefore it is still visible in the landscape. Due to the rise in sea level (after the melting of the ice sheet) and river erosion there was finally an open connection between the North Sea and ocean. At the beach waves constantly erodes the rocks and a coastal cliff was formed. The English Channel widens annually by about 130 centimeters.

Comments:
This is the top Higuera top, approximately 305m. above sea level. The lime-sandstone from the Cenozoic was formed in a shallow sea about 70 million years ago during the per-Betic tectonic phase. It was uplifted during the formation of the Iberian Peninsula. The landscape is located on the road to Manilva Casares (N340).

Comments:
The extinct volcanoes in the background are from the Pliocene. They are located in a lagoon called Mar Menor. This lagoon is now closed by a sand ridge with dunes. Previously the volcanoes in the open sea. The islands are called Islas Mayor have an altitude of 104 meters. They are not freely accessible. At the beaches at Los Alcazares many foraminifera can be found consisting of Calcite in the most beautiful colors.

Comments:
One of the most southern points of Spain. The rocks are Jurassic limestone. At this point, the formation extends from the peak of Gibraltar rock (421 meters) down into the strait. Likely, the same rock typology can be found one the other side. About 5.5 million years ago, the Atlantic breached into to Medditeranean basin (Alboran sea).
