The Almer?a Province of SE Spain, a semi-arid, tectonically lively area, is the point of interest of a variety of medical instructing and study within the earth sciences via universities and linked our bodies from all over the world. This box consultant offers an updated and built-in method of the geology and geomorphology of Almer?a Province, compiled by means of energetic medical researchers within the sector. The advisor assumes a simple wisdom of geology and geomorphology and may be of curiosity to earth scientists in any respect degrees from the willing novice via to undergraduate/postgraduate scholars and lecturers traveling the area. The consultant offers normal historical past at the sector, by way of a range of specialised journeys that gradually discover the constitution and improvement of the basins, the shallow marine sedimentation, the continental sedimentation and eventually the uplift, dissection and geomorphic evolution of the sedimentary basins. this can be the 1st broadly released box consultant at the Almer?a Province and it truly is designated in either its assurance and built-in earth technological know-how technique, supplying precious help for either educating and examine within the area. while you are a member of the foreign organization of Sedimentologists, for buying information, please see: http://www.iasnet.org/publications/details.asp?code=FG1

To the SE of the Carboneras Fault Zone is the Neogene volcanic zone of the Cabo de Gata. Between the uplifted zones lie the Neogene sedimentary basins; south of the Filabres are the Tabernas, Sorbas and Vera Basins, and south of the Sierras Alhamilla and Cabrera is the Almería Basin AFGC03 14/01/2009 12:23PM Page 32 32 Chapter 3 truncated in the south by the Carboneras Fault Zone from the Cabo de Gata (Fig. 1). Early stages of basin-filling The Sorbas and Tabernas Basins were created as an east–west-orientated half-graben, resulting from the switch in the Middle Miocene from compressional to local extensional tectonics.

Stop 4: Roadside (610 178; Macael 1 : 50 000) The rocks cropping out above the light mica schists are the Tahal schists, which are the basal formation of the Nevado–Filábride cover. The succession cropping out near Chercos Viejo village (apart from a few carbonate and metabasite intercalations) belongs to the Tahal Schist Formation. Although this stop is a good place to see the relationships between basement and cover, the best section to make structural and mineralogical observations in the Tahal schists is along the road from Cóbdar (Stop 7) to Uleila del Campo.

1989). The Maláguide basement consists of lower unfossiliferous, fine-grained, graphite-bearing mica schists (Mon, 1969) and overlying fossiliferous sediments ranging from the Silurian to the Carboniferous (Soediono, 1971; Geel, 1973; Herbig, 1983, 1984). The Maláguide cover comprises PermoTriassic red sandstones, Jurassic–Cretaceous shallow-water carbonates and pelagic limestones, and Tertiary nummulite limestones and marine siliciclastic deposits (Azema, 1961; Soediono, 1971; Geel, 1973). The Alpujárride complex The Alpujárride complex extends from Estepona (Málaga) to Cartagena (Murcia; Fig.
