The situation of the Iberian Peninsula in the extreme south west of Europe and only 14 kilometres away from the African continent, endows Spain with a great strategic value: projecting into the Mediterranean on one side and acting as an intersection on the path to Africa and America on the other.

It is bordered by the Adriatic Sea on the east coast, the Tyrrhenian Sea on the west or Mediterranean coast, and the Ionian Sea to the the north, Italy is bordered by the countries of France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia. Geologic maps: a practical guide to preparation and interpretation by Edgar W. Spencer Geologic maps supply a wealth of information about the surface and shallow subsurface of the earth. The types of materials that are present in a location and the three-dimensional structure of the bedrock both can be gleaned from a clearly prepared geologic map.

Mediterranean Sea, an intercontinental sea that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean on the west to Asia on the east and separates Europe from Africa. It has often been called the incubator of Western civilization. This ancient “sea between the lands” occupies a deep, elongated, and almost landlocked irregular depression lying between latitudes 30° and 46° N and longitudes 5°50′ W and Black Sea, large inland sea situated at the southeastern extremity of Europe.

The roughly oval-shaped sea is connected to the distant waters of the Atlantic Ocean by the Bosporus, the Sea of Marmara, the Dardanelles, the Aegean Sea, and the Mediterranean Sea.

Europe is traditionally defined as one of seven continents. Physiographically, it is the northwestern peninsula of the larger landmass known as Eurasia (or the larger Afro-Eurasia); Asia occupies the eastern bulk of this continuous landmass and all share a common continental 's eastern frontier is delineated by the Ural Mountains in southeast boundary with Asia is not Countries: 50 sovereign states, 5 with limited recognition.

Among the geological features in the Mediterranean region that continue to capture Earth scientists' attention are the arcuate mountain belts of the Betics, the Maghrebides, the Apennines, the Alps, the Carpathians, and the Dinarides-Hellenides ().In particular, in view of the evidence for collision in the Alps, the geodynamical evolution of the region has generally been considered in the.

In the latter, Europe and Asia are parts of the Eurasian plate, which excludes the Arabian and Indian tectonic plates.

Regional view. In human geography, there are several schools of thought. As a result, about one half of the island now is covered by new geological maps with ,–, accuracy and geological maps at thescale whose explanatory notes are available.

The white line represents the present-day Mediterranean coastline, blue regions show the submarine area in case of a 2km Mediterranean sea level lowering as it was proposed during the Messinian salinity crisis and red circles show the location of volcanic provinces whose activity was enhanced during the Messinian (the size of the circle is proportional the activity augmentation).

Subcommission for Hydrological Maps Date:   Today’s interactive map, by Martin Jan Månsson, is a comprehensive snapshot of the world’s trade networks through the 11th and 12th centuries, which helped to connect kingdoms and merchants throughout Asia, Africa, and Europe.

A confluence of interesting factors helped bring these markets together to encourage commercial activity.

The geologic time scale (GTS) is a system of chronological dating that classifies geological strata (stratigraphy) in is used by geologists, paleontologists, and other Earth scientists to describe the timing and relationships of events that once occurred, which also allows them to accurately file the times when different creatures were fossilised and may lives in, after carbon dating.

The risk of flooding is the main natural hazard that affects the European Mediterranean region. This hazard has worsened in recent decades due to the occupation of flood areas and the effects of climate change.

Therefore, understanding and gaining a more in-depth knowledge of social representations of flooding is important.

In addition, interest in this subject is accentuated in the case of. As you zoom into the map the scale changes from scale (small scale) to scale (medium scale).

Our raised relief maps offer accurate three-dimensional representation of nature and the landscape, showing all the features of the particular geographical area.The Zagros Fold and Thrust Belt shown in Iran is too complex to be contoured at the Cretaceous level at this map scale (Académie des Sciences de L’U.R.S.S., UNESCO, ; Berberian and King, ); but major (super-giant) oil and gas fields are indicated, with outcrop structure based on Ion et al.

(), Slinger and Crichton (), U.N.Geology (from the Ancient Greek γῆ, gē ("earth") and -λoγία, -logia, ("study of", "discourse")) is an earth science concerned with the solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change over time.

Geology can also include the study of the solid features of any terrestrial planet or natural satellite such as Mars or the Moon.
