The rocks of Guadeloupe. A studied treasure: the geologist’s kingdom
Geologist Erwan BOURDON introduces us to the geological treasures of Basse Terre, before heading with students and researchers to the marvellous island of La Désirade.
« We can see that La Désirade has almost the same characteristics as the volcanic rocks, but there is also some limestone, sediments. We can also see that there is a different history to what we see in Guadeloupe. It’s interesting! (…) For us, La Désirade is a fascinating place, a place that attracts a lot of research. Several teams are working here: Swiss, Dutch, British. We will soon be publishing a paper presenting all the new information we have about how La Désirade formed.”
