About the Authors
  • During the Tertiary, Spain suffered compressional collision between France and Africa, and its Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts have been further modified by extensional rifting. Because it includes sectors of two separate foreland basins, and an intervening craton with basins that have been influenced by extensional and strikeSHslip deformation, Spain provides excellent material for the development and testing of theories on the study of sedimentary basin formation and filling. This book is one of the few studies available in English of the important Tertiary geology of Spain.

    • 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 beautifully 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

    "Most of the papers are filled with current concepts, new information, and tidy reviews. You come away feeling that you have a fair handle in both the structural development and the associated sedimentation....One of the truly important aspects of this volume is that it provides the reader with a window into the literature of the different areas of Spain." Charlotte Schreiber, AAPG Bulletin

    "This book is a 'must' for anybody requiring an introduction to the Tertiary basins of Spain..." Gary Nichols, Geological Magazine
