The origin and tectonic history of the Alboran Basin: Insights from Leg 161 results

Abstract:

The Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Leg 161 drilled in the Western Mediterranean Sea (May-June, 1995) to investigate outstanding processes in the origin and structural evolution of the Alboran Basin. Studies at the Site 976 basement high, in the West Alboran Basin, demonstrate that the basin is floored with metamorphic rocks of continental origin (high-grade schist, migmatic gneiss, marble, and calc-silicate rock, cross-cut by granite dikes) from the Alpujarride Complex of the Alboran Crustal Do...
