The last 20 years have been an exciting period in the Neogene research on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. During this stage, the Regional Committee on Atlantic Neogene Stratigraphy (RCANS) has made intense efforts to organize international meetings and interim-colloquiums that help to establish bonds of cooperation and friendship between researchers from both sides of the Atlantic. This long road has gone through Portugal (1992), France (1994), Spain (1997), Morocco (2003) and Argentina (2008).

In 2012, RCANS commemorates its 20th anniversary by celebrating the V RCANS Congress in Huelva, Spain. The main topics include sea-level and climatic changes, the record of high-energy events (tsunamis, storms), high-resolution biostratigraphy, the last frontier of Neanderthals or the Neogene geological heritage.

Huelva is a paradise located in southwestern Spain where the Mediterranean climate and the Atlantic influence join in a geological and geographic space of unique beauty and color. This natural harmony has its maximum expression in the Doñana National Park, a Biosphere Reserve to be visited during this event.

Looking forward to seeing you in Huelva in 2013.

http://www.turismohuelva.org/guiaprofesional/web/ TOURIST INFORMATION Doñana is located in Andalusia, in the provinces of Huelva and Seville, and covers 543 km² of which 135 km² are a protected area. The park is an area of marsh, shallow streams, and sand dunes in Las Marismas, the Guadalquivir River Delta region where it flows into the Atlantic Ocean. The original area was established in 1963 when the World Wildlife Fund joined with the Spanish government and purchased a section of marshes to protect it. There has been a constant threat to the eco-system, that of drainage of the marshes, the use of river water to boost agricultural production by irrigating land along the coast, and the expansion of tourist facilities.

In 1994 UNESCO designated the park a World Heritage Site. UNESCO has also recognised the park as a Biosphere reserve. It is a wetland of international importance on the list of the Ramsar Convention.

The park has a biodiversity that is unique in Europe, although there are some similarities to the Camargue, with which Doñana is twinned. Doñana contains a great variety of ecosystems and shelters wildlife including thousands of European and African migratory birds, fallow deer, Spanish red deer, wild boar, European badger, Egyptian mongoose, and endangered species such as the Spanish Imperial Eagle and Iberian Lynx. Huelva is a city in southwestern Spain, the capital of the province of Huelva in the autonomous region of Andalusia. It is located along the Gulf of Cadiz coast, at the confluence of the Odiel and Tinto rivers. According to the 2010 census, the city has a population of 149,410 inhabitants. The city has been inhabited since 3000 BC. From Guadiana on the border of Portugal to the Guadalquivir, the border of Cadiz, Seville there are 150 kms for fine sand beaches on the coastline of Huelva in Andalusia, Spain. The Atlantic Ocean of the Costa de la luz has wild beaches and crystal clear waters Geoturist in Doñana National Park LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN HUELVA!!! http://www.uhu.es/fexp/ th Call for abstracts Early registration Late registration V RCANS CONGRESS Expanded abstract

The geological events that shaped the Guadalquivir basin: A review of the basin history through eight snapshots The upper Neogene sedimentary history of the Guadalquivir Basin is characterized by the sedimentation of a wide variety of lithostratigraphic units in a foreland basin located between a passive margin (the Iberian Massif) to the North, and the active Betic Ranges to the South. In the western sector of the Guadalquivir Basin (Huelva and Seville provinces), the Neogene succession has been subdivided into four litostratigraphic units recording the progressive infilling of the basin. In this units are represented the complete history of this sector of the Iberian Peninsula during the last 8 Millions of year, from a marine seagate connecting the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, to the present configuration, with a big extension of salt marsh and dune fileds in the mouth of the river .
