A study shows that the continents grow after the collision of two continental plates

The study, in which the National Museum of Natural Sciences (MNCN-CSIC) and the Andalusian Institute of Earth Sciences (IACT-CSIC-UGR) participate, changes the scientific model that explained how new continental crust is created

 The work indicates that large granite formations such as the Sierra de Gredos come from the Earth's mantle
