Role of tectonics on the sedimentary evolution in the western sector of the Guadix Basin (Betic Cordillera, Spain)

By Sila Pla Pueyo, César Viseras Alarcón, Jesús Miguel Soria Mingorance and Alfonso Arribas Herrera


In this work we develop an up-to-date stratigraphical scheme of a determinate zone within the western sector of the Guadix Basin (Betic Cordillera, South of Spain), where most of the main large-mammal sites are concentrated. The stratigraphical architecture is highly influenced in this sector by the tectonic evolution of the basin. The boundary between the two main genetic units represents a change in the rate of creation of new accommodation space. This change can be assumed as a consequence of the slowdown of the tectonic subsidence in the area through the Pliocene and the Pleistocene.Proyectos del IGME 2001016 y 2005009, y Proyecto General de Investigación de la Dirección General de Bienes Culturales de la Junta de Andalucía.
