Research

The Basque Coast Geopark has collaboration agreements with various scientific bodies. Right now, the Geopark is participating in the following research projects:


  • QUATERNARY ENVIRONMENTAL EVOLUTION IN THE DEBA AND ZUMAIA ESTUARIES.  

Project led by Prof Alejandro Cearreta (UPV-EHU-University of the Basque Country) and co-funded by the Geopark, the Government of the Basque Autonomous Community and the UPV-EHU and which is seeking to get to know the quaternary evolution of the estuaries on the basis of the micropalaeontological and sedimentological study of their sedimentary filling.

Duration of the project 2013-2015. 

  • KARSTIC PROCESSES AND MODELLING OF THE BASQUE COAST GEOPARK

Project led by Prof Arantza Aramburu (UPV-EHU-University of the Basque Country / Aranzadi Society of Sciences) and co-funded by the Geopark, the Government of the Basque Autonomous Community and the UPV-EHU to produce a geomorphological map of the Geopark, describe the main Karstic processes and locate a cave that can be visited.

Duration of the project 2013-2015.

  • RESEARCH INTO THE GEOPARK’s HAIZEOLAS (mountain ironworks). 

Project led by Prof Xabier Orue-Etxebarria (UPV-EHU-University of the Basque Country) and co-funded by the Geopark, the Government of the Basque Autonomous Community, and the Chartered Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa. The project includes the excavation of one Haizeola and opens up a new line of work allowing work to be conducted on the more cultural implications of the geological resource.

Duration of the project 2011-2015.

Laginketak egiteko baimena

Ikerketa ezinbesteko jarduera da Geoparkearen garapenerako. Horregatik, laguntza eskaniko dizugu. Ondare geologikoaren harrapaketa eta kalteak ekiditeko helburuarekin, laginketa zientifiko guztiek organu kudeatzailearen baimena eduki beharko dute.
