Throughout the Tertiary, Spain suffered compressional collision among France and Africa, and its Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts were extra changed through extensional rifting. since it contains sectors of 2 separate foreland basins, and an intervening craton with basins which have been encouraged by way of extensional and strikeSHslip deformation, Spain presents first-class fabric for the improvement and checking out of theories at the examine of sedimentary basin formation and filling. This ebook is likely one of the few reports on hand in English of the $64000 Tertiary geology of Spain.

Example text

Trapped between the EuroAsiatic and African plates, Iberia underwent very important deformation throughout the Tertiary. The opening of the Atlantic caused general displacement towards the east, but also led to N-S convergence. During the Eocene, compression produced important deformation in the Pyrenees and the Bay of Biscay. This deformation continued in the Oligocene, but the opening of new basins in the Mediterranean led to compression and formation of the Iberian Cordillera. The BeticRiffian Internal Zones, which had been deformed throughout the Palaeocene, were expelled westward towards the end of the Oligocene and particularly in the Neogene, when they reached their present position.
