Comments:
Boulder clay moraine deposits in Emmen, The Netherlands. You can see that the boulder clay deposit is very poorly sorted. This is because boulder clay is formed by glaciation.

Beautiful layered formation along the road from Villajoyosa to Alcoy, left of the village of Sella. The ligt on the flanks of the Sierra d, Aitana and consists mainly of Cretaceous limestone. The colors were probably formed by minerals. The direction of pressure which tilted the layers was North-South.

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).

Orcheta is located on the Rio Amadoro (Costa Blanca). Here you will find a reservoir. On the west side there is the tilted deposit of alternating marl and limestone (Albian-Senonian). The material also contains microfossils, these can be found on the waterfront (beaches). There are also teeth from mainly small lizard species. Many foraminifera. The site is located on the Amadoro Fault Line. Excursion from Benidorm is possible.

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).
