A LIBRARY JOURNAL BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR When Berta Isla was a schoolgirl, she decided she would marry Tomás Nevinson--the dashing half-Spanish, half-English boy in her class with an extraordinary gift for languages. But when Tomás returns to Madrid from his studies at Oxford, he is a changed man. Unbeknownst to her, he has been approached by an agent from the British intelligence services, and he has unwittingly set in motion events that will derail forever the life they had planned. With peerless insight into the most shadowed corners of the human soul, Marías plunges the reader into the growing chasm between Berta and Tomás and the decisions that irreversibly change the course of the couple's fate. Berta Isla is a novel of love and truth, fear and secrecy, buried identities, and the destinies we bring upon ourselves.

This book is the result of ten years’ of scientific research carried out by the authors on Isla de los Estados. The research includes their doctoral thesis and many published scientific papers related to the island. The book is divided into two principal parts. The first part covers different social and natural aspects of this remote island and includes chapters on the scientific and historical background, physiography with topographical and hydrographical descriptions, climate and oceanographic circulation, vegetation and geology (including stratigraphy, structural geology and geological history). The second part comprises a reconstruction of the paleoenvironmental, paleoclimatic and paleogeographic history of the island from the Last Glacial Maximum to the present, correlating with other paleoecological records from the southern part of Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia. This second part also includes a geomorphological chapter with a characterization of the principal erosive glacial landforms on Isla de los Estados constructed by means of morphometric analysis, inventories, maps, paleogeographic and glacial models, and a paleoecological chapter evaluating the palaeoenvironment and palaeoclimatic conditions that prevailed during the Late Pleistocene-Holocene times based on pollen and diatom analysis from three 14C-dated peat bogs and lakes. Finally, the book concludes with a review of the island’s archaeology and the relationship between the palaeoenvironmental history and human occupation of this island.

ISLA Land and Water Management in Mediterranean Islands Using Earth Observation Data

In the Mediterranean islands, limited water supplies combined with highly developed tourism and irrigation agriculture lead to extreme pressures on water resources. ISLA project has produced an application to support water managers in their decision-making activities, providing them with specific and up to date information obtained from Earth Observation data. Resulting of this project, water managers will be able to address their most typical and urgent problems in land and water management; to plan viable solutions for water use reduction; to know how much water is potentially available; to exploit alternative sources of water; and to have an overview of the total water supply. ISLA project is geographically focused on the islands of Mallorca (Spain) and Crete (Greece), and the target users of ISLA system are river basin organisms, regional authorities, local development agencies and hydroelectric companies.

Southwestern Isla Tiburon (SWIT), Gulf of California, Mexico, is an area approximately 30 square kilometers, containing sedimentary and volcanic strata which are predominantly Early and Middle Miocene in age. A fossiliferous marine conglomerate on SWIT is believed the oldest marine deposit in the Gulf of California region, and supports the conclusion that a marine protogulf existed 15 to 8 Ma. K-Ar ages from this and previous studies provide a time constraint on the deposition of the marine conglomerate and the overall volcanic history of SWIT. Dips of beds suggest listric faulting occurred throughout much of the Miocene: Redbeds dip 40-50°N, basalt flows 23oN, conglomerates 20oN, and an ignimbrite 5oNW. A fault along Arroyo II displays right-lateral, strike slip and may be related to the La Cruz Fault which trends NW-SE along the southwest end of the island. In the late Cretaceous-early Tertiary, SWIT was part of the arc system along the western margin of the North American Plate. At this time, SWIT was adjacent to northeastern Baja California. In the Early Miocene Basin and Range extension led to the formation of small trough-shaped basins, and fluvio-lacustrine deposition resulted. Volcanic and roof pendant debris was shed into small basins on SWIT from the north. At 21-19 Ma andesitic volcanism occurred and a volcanic collapse structure formed which was later filled with andesitic lahar. The andesitic magma apparently formed out of a primary melt of the lower crust. From 19-16 Ma basaltic volcanism was dominant on SWIT and both tabular flows and ring dikes developed. The basalt of SWIT is alkalic olivine-augite, is high in incompatible elements and is similar to Early and Middle Miocene basalts of the Imperial Valley-northeastern Baja California region. Dacitic pyroclastic volcanism followed basaltic volcanism on SWIT, and between 14 and 11 Ma a protogulf developed which was filled with pyroclastic and conglomerate debris. At 11 Ma volcanism on SWIT became predominantly rhyolitic. First, rhyolite ignimbrite extruded, and, in the late Miocene, rhyolite pods, coulees, and crystal dikes developed. In the early Pliocene a dacitic ignimbrite with a tholeiitic character extruded reflecting conditions associated with modern Gulf of California rifting and seafloor spreading.
