Thank you for attending V RCANS Congress



The last 20 years have been an exciting period in the Neogene research on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. During this time, the Regional Committee on Atlantic Neogene Stratigraphy (RCANS) has made intense efforts to organize international meetings and interim-colloquiums that help to establish bonds of cooperation and friendship between researchers from both sides of the Atlantic. This long road has gone through Portugal (1992), France (1994), Spain (1997), Morocco (2003) and Argentina (2008).

In 2013, RCANS commemorates its 20th anniversary by celebrating the V RCANS Congress in Huelva, Spain. The main topics include sea-level and climatic changes, the record of high-energy events (tsunamis and storms), high-resolution biostratigraphy, climate change and human population or the Neogene geological heritage.

Huelva is located in southwestern Spain where the Mediterranean climate and the Atlantic influence combine in a geological and geographic space of unique beauty and color. This natural harmony has its maximum expression in the Doñana National Park, a Biosphere Reserve to be visited during this event.

Looking forward to seeing you at the V RCANS Congress in Huelva.
