Urra stands centrally within the Sorbas Basin, which has received much attention world wide. Despite almost continuous research since the mid sixties by English, Dutch, French, German and Spanish geologists, we are assured that "there are still a lot of doctorates waiting to be picked up" in the basin, some within walking distance of the house.
Urra already features in the acknowledgements of many dissertations, doctoral theses and papers in scientific journals.
For first degree mapping projects or dissertations in Geography, Geology, Geomorphology, Sedimentology or Environmental Studies, we can provide sufficient diversity for large numbers of students to follow their separate interests.
We are still building up our library whic already holds several hundred papers pertinent to study here. It also contains books to help with the identification of plants, reptiles, etc.
