Tectonic Geomorphology (2nd Edition)

Tectonic geomorphology is the examine of the interaction among tectonic and floor approaches that form the panorama in areas of lively deformation and at time scales starting from days to thousands of years. during the last decade, fresh advances within the quantification of either premiums and the actual foundation of tectonic and floor tactics have underpinned an explosion of recent examine within the box of tectonic geomorphology.

1986). A pronounced crustal thinning is observed from the Betics to the Alboran Sea. Different seismic profiles acquired near the shoreline (Banda & Ansorge 1980; Medialdea et al. 1986; Barranco et al. 1990) show a crustal thickness of 23-24 km. The crustal structure in the Alboran Sea is poorly constrained, since the only available data come from seismic experiments shot in 1974 (Hatzfeld 1976; Boloix & Hatzfeld 1977) and in 1979 (Surifiach & Vegas 1993) which show that the Moho lies at about 15 km depth in the central part of the basin.
