Neogene Lacustrine Systems of the Southern Teruel Graben (Spain)
Published:January 01, 2000
The Teruel graben, up to 15 km wide, extends more than 100 km and cuts across the central part of the northwest-southeast compressional Alpine IberianChain (Figure 1). A detachment level within this chain is formed by thick Upper Triassic evaporitic andlutitic formations that separate two different structurallevels:the Hercynian basement (with a Permian-Lower Triassic thin covering) and a thickJurassic-Paleogene carbonate-dominated cover. The Teruel graben displays en echelon north-northeast south-southwest oriented faults and a half-grabenstructure with hanging-wall subsidence westward of each fault and footwall uplift eastward of each fault(Moissenet, 1980; Anad6n and Moissenet, 1990). This graben is the result of the...

Lake Basins Through Space and Time
The geology of lake basins was a popular subject in the 19th century, fired by interest in the discoveries during the exploration of the American west. This book builds on the experience of an international group of limnogeology enthusiasts. The science of limnogeology is of importance to petroleum geology. Although not every limnic deposit is an exploration target, a comprehensive understanding of diverse lacustrine environments of deposition can help exploration strategies. The volume presents 60 new basin summaries, a few of which are Mongolia, southeastern Kazakhstan, southern Scotland, northwest China, the U.S. southwest, southern France, northeastern Spain, central Italy, and northwestern Mexico.
