Urban green spaces (UGS) are patches of nature that, when located in the vicinity of schools, can be used to encourage active learning. But when educators plan on using these spaces in their daily routine, they have to face numerous difficulties. This paper analyses the uses of UGS by primary education teachers and the influence that the distance b...

Climate Change is the most important threat to our society and all species on Earth. Large alterations in the climate are affecting every aspect of our society and in order to limit this impact we must decarbonize the economy before 2050. Although science presents solid evidence on the magnitude of the problem and outlines precisely the consequence...

High school and university students' misconceptions about tides were analysed by means of an open drawing questionnaire. Although two thirds of students favoured the Moon's attraction as the main cause of tides, many students had difficulties to represent the phenomena on a global scale. Only 24 of them (7.5% of the whole sample) illustrated the tw...

The Pennsylvanian phylloid algal mounds exposed in the Cervatina Limestone of the Cantabrian Zone (NW Spain) developed during the highstands of high-frequency shallowing-upward cycles and lack evidence of subaerial exposure at their tops. Mound core facies are composed of massive bafflestones with variable amounts of calcite cements and anchicodiac...
Article
The cortical structure of the green anchicodiacean alga Anchicodium in the Pennsylvanian Dueñas Formation of the Cantabrian Zone (northwestern Spain) is described and illustrated. Anchicodium is characterized by a broad phylloid or leaflike calcified thallus, consisting of a bilateral cortex and a poorly calcified central medulla. The organization...

Oroclines are the largest scale folds on Earth, and the process of oroclinal formation is a key topic in tectonics. However, most studies of oroclines have focused on the hinge areas, where the changes in strike, and therefore the orocline shape, are most obvious. In this paper, we investigate the deformation mechanisms, the timing, and the structu...
