In this paper, we present a combined magnetic anisotropy (AMS), structural, palaeo- and rock-magnetic study of Eocene marine mudrocks from the western sector of the Jaca-Pamplona Basin (southwestern Pyrenees, north Spain). Comparison of structural, AMS and palaeomagnetic data reveals a subtle, but evident tectonic overprint affecting the phyllosilicate matrix of the mudrocks and the remanence carriers. The particular structural setting of the studied rocks has allowed us to combine palaeomagnetic and structural data with the AMS results in order to establish a relative chronology between sedimentation, blocking of magnetic fabrics, acquisition of magnetic remanence and deformation. Our data suggest...
