Journal of the Geological Society (2012) 169 (6): 667-679.
...Ana Crespo-Blanc; J. C. Balanyá; I. Expósito; M. Luján; E. Suades Abstract The external wedge of the Gibraltar Arc orogenic system (western Mediterranean) is a natural case of a fold-and-thrust salient. Although at the scale of the arc a swing of the structural trend can be observed, the presence...

...Ana Crespo-Blanc; Dominique Frizon de Lamotte Abstract The Betics and Rif cordillera constitute the northern and southern segments of the Gibraltar arc. Two different fold-and-thrust belts, deriving from the South Iberian and Maghrebian paleomargins respectively, developed in front of this orogenic...

... of the Gibraltar Arc. The Plio-Pleistocene succession located in the Atlantic margin offshore of northern Morocco represents a well-developed Neogene progradational succession. Flexural loading in response to thrusting and extensional collapse of the Gibraltar Arc accretionary wedge, followed by widespread late...

...ANDREW I. KIRKER; JOHN P. PLATT Abstract We have investigated the kinematics of deformation in a sector of the Gibraltar arc in SW Spain, by synthesizing lineation data from major faults, the variation in structural trends, and palaeomagnetically determined vertical-axis rotations. The kinematic...

...E. S. Platzman Abstract Paleomagnetic investigations of a Mesozoic limestone sequence around the Gibraltar arc show that there have been large systematic rotations about a vertical axis and imply that there must have been a significant component of westward motion within the Betic-Rif orogenic belt...
