Researchers study the depths of the Sierra de Atapuerca

Josep M. Parés, coordinator of the Geochronology and Geology Program at the Centro Nacional de Investigación sobre la Evolución Humana (CENIEH), is the co-leader of a geological study published in the journal Marine and Petroleum Geology. The research explores the subsurface of the zone between the Sierra de La Demanda and the Sierra de Ubierna and, more specifically, around the Sierra de Atapuerca, where the fold outcropping on the surface has its roots over 1,000 meters below.
