Del planeta Tierra a las galaxias: fronteras de la búsqueda de la vida en astrobiogeología

¿Es potencialmente habitable el exoplaneta Kepler-452b localizado a 1400 años luz de la Tierra? ¿En qué otros puntos del Universo se ha podido desarrollar el fenómeno de la vida? ¿Cuál sería la bioquímica más plausible para la vida extraterrestre? Todas estas incógnitas sobre la búsqueda de vida dentro y fuera del Sistema Solar son el hilo conductor del viaje narrativo del libro `(In)habitabilidad planetaria. Fundamentos de astrobiogeología’ (Ed. Marcombo), una obra coordinada por el profesor Andrea Butturini, de la Facultad de Biología de la Universidad de Barcelona y en el que ha colaborado también el investigador del Instituto de Ciencias de la Tierra Jaume Almera del CSIC, Daniel García-Castellanos.

Así registran las campanadas los sismómetros

Un nuevo estudio ha comparado las diferentes formas de dar la hora de campanarios de varios países europeos a partir de los datos registrados por sismómetros instalados en las cercanías de edificios religiosos. El trabajo, realizado por el investigador Jordi Díaz  y publicado en la revista ‘Journal of Seismology’, describe las características de los registros sísmicos provocados por las campanadas horarias de cuatro iglesias de Grecia, Francia, Italia y España y muestra las diferencias que existen entre ellos.

How seismometers record church bells ringing

A new study has compared the different types of bell ringing to indicate the passage of time used in several European countries using recordings of seismometers installed near bell towers. The study, made by ICTJA-CSIC researcher Jordi Díaz and recently published in “Journal of Seismology”, describes the characteristics of the seismic signal recorded by stations installed close to four churches from Greece, France, Italy and Spain. The work reflects the existing differences traditions still active in Europe to mark the hours with bell ringing.

New PhD thesis sheds light on the dynamics and evolution of double subduction systems with opposite polarity

Mireia Peral defended her PhD Thesis entitled “Dynamics of subduction systems with opposite polarity in adjacent segments: application to the westernmost Mediterranean” on June On 3rd June. The main purpose of the work, which has been supervised by Manel Fernández, researcher at ICTJA-CSIC, and Sergio Zlotnikm from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), was to study and to better understand the evolution and dynamics of double subduction systems characterized by opposite dip polarity determining the relevant physical parameters that characterize a process that, according to Mireia Peral, is “still poorly understood”.

Una nueva tesis doctoral arroja luz sobre la dinámica de los procesos de doble subducción con polaridad opuesta

Mireia Peral defendió el pasado 3 de junio su tesis doctoral titulada “Dynamics of subduction systems with opposite polarity in adjacent segments: application to the Westernmost Mediterranean”. El trabajo de Peral, que ha sido codirigido por el Dr. Manel Fernández, investigador del ICTJA-CSIC, y el Dr. Sergio Zlotnik, de la Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (UPC), tenía como principal objetivo estudiar el comportamiento dinámico de los sistemas de doble subducción con polaridad opuesta en segmentos adyacentes, un proceso que, según la investigadora, es “muy poco conocido hasta el momento”.
