The lower Tertiary outcrops along the coast of Guipúzcoa, northern Spain, consist exclusively of deep-marine sediments, deposited in a narrow, elongated (east-southeast to west-northwest) basin. The early Tertiary sedimentary history of this basin can be described in terms of three phases: 1) predominantly (hemi)pelagic deposition (almost the entire Paleocene), 2) deposition from axially flowing, carbonate-rich turbidity currents (latest Paleocene to earliest Eocene), and 3) lateral input of predominantly terrigenous clastics via submarine fans (most of the early Eocene). During the latter two phases, the contribution of (hemi)pelagic sedimentation became progressively less important due to increasing rates of turbidite sedimentation....
