By Anne E. Mather, Jose M. Martin, Adrian M. Harvey, Juan C. Braga

The Almer?a Province of SE Spain, a semi-arid, tectonically lively area, is the point of interest of a variety of clinical instructing and study within the earth sciences via universities and linked our bodies from all over the world. This box advisor offers an updated and built-in method of the geology and geomorphology of Almer?a Province, compiled via energetic clinical researchers within the sector. The consultant assumes a uncomplicated wisdom of geology and geomorphology and should be of curiosity to earth scientists in any respect degrees from the prepared beginner via to undergraduate/postgraduate scholars and lecturers traveling the area. The advisor offers common historical past at the sector, by way of a range of specialised journeys that gradually discover the constitution and improvement of the basins, the shallow marine sedimentation, the continental sedimentation and at last the uplift, dissection and geomorphic evolution of the sedimentary basins. this is often the 1st broadly released box advisor at the Almer?a Province and it really is detailed in either its assurance and built-in earth technological know-how method, delivering worthwhile aid for either educating and learn within the quarter. while you are a member of the foreign organization of Sedimentologists, for getting information, please see: http://www.iasnet.org/publications/details.asp?code=FG1

Example text

During this stage, eclogites and blueschists formed from the metabasites and kyanite–talc–phengite assemblages in the evaporitic sediments (Gómez-Pugnaire et al. 1994). This metamorphic stage presumably developed syn- to post the S1 deformational phase during a continent–continent collision event (see below). 2 The second metamorphic stage implies a continuous, nearly isothermal, decrease in pressure with respect to the first metamorphic event, probably related to the decompression produced by uplift (see references above).

At this stage of basin evolution the Sierra Alhamilla was largely submerged, as is indicated by the presence of turbidites in the Huebro graben, in the heart of the Sierra de Alhamilla. The Tortonian sediments are best represented in the Tabernas Basin, where they include thick muds, turbidites and debris-flows, with deposition dominated by several Nevado– Filábride-fed submarine fan systems. 4. Continued deformation of the basin margins led to the development of spectacular slump structures, and basin-wide megabeds, interpreted as seismites (Kleverlaan, 1987, 1989a,b).

This is a rather monotonous sequence of light psammitic schist with many intercalations of quartzites from millimetres to several metres in thickness.
