You can touch it!

We successfully completed the fieldtrip associated with the 2nd Postcruise Meeting IODP Exp. 378 held in Zumaia (Basque Country) on the 20-21st July, 2023.
We visited several Eocene stratigraphic sections guided by the expert Dr. Aitor Payros (UPV/EHU) and enjoyed the geological jewels of the Basque Coast Geopark, which is part of the UNESCO Global Geopark Network.
