About the Authors
  • This is the first book to deal comprehensively with Spain's tectonic and sedimentary history over the past sixty or so million years. During Tertiary times, Spain had suffered compressional collision between France and Africa, and its Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts had been further modified by extensional rifting. This study will therefore be of interest to earth scientists generally because of the insights it provides into continental crustal deformation. Spain contains some of the best exposed outcrop geology in Europe. Because it includes sectors of two separate foreland basins, and an intervening craton with basins that have been influenced by extensional and strike-slip deformation, it provides excellent material for the development and testing of theories on the study of sedimentary basin formation and filling.

    • Unique exposition of the sedimentation of Spain
    • Renowned panel of contributors
    • No books in English on the geology of Spain

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This is undoubtedly a mature source book, which provides a wealth of information, clearly expressed in an annotated text with beautiful diagrams. The references are timely. Another nice feature is the nicely interpreted seismic lines. … This professional book should be on the shelves of those interested in Spanish geology, and in the libraries of geology departments and exploration companies.' Christopher Kendall, The Leading Edge

    'It undoubtedly provides the most extensive coverage of the Tertiary geology of Spain ... and is therefore essential reference material for anyone interested in the sedimentology, stratigraphy and tectonics of the region … This book is a 'must'.' Gary Nichols, Geological Magazine
