Aptian— Albian tectonic pattern of the Basque— Cantabrian Basin (Northern Spain)
During the Aptian and Albian thick terrigenous and carbonate successions of sediments up to 5000 m thick, including shallow water rudist limestones (Urgonian facies), were deposited in the Basque–Expand

Impact of Early Aptian carbon cycle perturbations on evolution of a marine shelf system in the Basque-Cantabrian Basin (Aralar, N Spain)
Abstract The Aptian Oceanic Anoxic Event 1a (OAE1a, ca.120 Ma ago) is one of the most prominent of a series of geologically brief intervals in the Cretaceous reflecting a major perturbation in theExpand

Strike-Slip Subsidence of the Basque-Cantabrian Basin of Northern Spain and Its Relationship to Aptian-Albian Opening of Bay of Biscay: Chapter 25: European-African Margins
The Basque-Cantabrian basin of northern Spain was formed by Mesozoic extension of the North Atlantic margins and opening of the Bay of Biscay. The preorogenic history of the basin included two phasesExpand

Comparative stratigraphy and subsidence history of Mesozoic rift basins of North Atlantic
Mesozoic rift basins around the North Atlantic all possess many of the following Upper Jurassic to Lower Cretaceous (Oxfordian to Albian) stratigraphic elements: (1) an early Oxfordian hiatus, (2)Expand

The Early Aptian of Aralar (northern Spain): stratigraphy, sedimentology, ammonite biozonation, and OAE1
The stratigraphy, sedimentology, ammonite faunas, and geochemistry of the early Aptian of the Aralar Mountains in northern Spain are described. This area contains a 983-m-thick succession ofExpand

Carbonate depositional sequence development on active fault blocks: the Albian in the Castro Urdiales area, northern Spain
The Aptian to lowermost Albian carbonate platform of Castro Urdiales (Cantabria, northern Spain) was broken up by extensional tectonic movements shortly after the beginning of the Albian. BlockExpand

Depositional architecture of a rimmed carbonate platform (Albian, Gorbea, western Pyrenees)
A Lower Cretaceous carbonate platform depositional system with a rimmed margin and an adjacent oversteepened slope was analysed in order to determine its depositional architecture and majorExpand

Plate reconstruction of the Bay of Biscay
A plate reconstruction of the Bay of Biscay to a predrift stage is proposed on the basis of (1) an Aptian-Albian tectonic pattern of the Basque-Cantabrian region in northern Spain, which suggestsExpand

Sequence Stratigraphy and Systems Tracts of a Mixed Carbonate and Siliciclastic Platform-Basin Setting: The Albian of Lunada and Soba, Northern Spain
In the Lunada-Soba carbonate platform-basin setting (Albian of Basque-Cantabrian region, northern Spain), nine type 1 depositional sequences have been identified. Their boundaries represent times ofExpand
