Imagery and Remote Sensing

ESRI Udemy

September 2017 to October 2017
Training in Imagery and Remote Sensing “Earth Imagery at Work, MOOC”

Voluntary Field Training

Universidad de Salamanca

July 2017
Voluntary training in the field of metamorphic petrology in the south-east of Salamanca province (Map Sheet MAGNA 1.50000 Nº529), especially in the vicinities of Bercimuelle, Puente del Congosto, Gallegos de Solmirón and El Mirón. This training was realised in rocks that belong to the Esquisto-Grauvaquico Complex, dated Pre-Ordovicien, who suffered metamorphic procceses associated to Variscan Orogeny and Pre, Sin or Post-Variscan igneous intrusions.
