espanolEn la evolucion reciente de los margenes continentales ibericos se han registrado numerosos, y cada vez mas frecuentes, ejemplos de procesos sedimentarios generados por la interaccion de las corrientes con el fondo. Los productos de la circulacion de las corrientes de fondo comprenden tanto rasgos contorniticos erosivos como deposicionales, de dimensiones variables dependiendo de los diferentes contextos geologicos y oceanograficos. En Iberia las masas de agua mas relevantes interactuan… 

Contourites along the Iberian continental margins: conceptual and economic implications

Abstract This work uses seismic records to document and classify contourite features around the Iberian continental margin to determine their implications for depositional systems and petroleum

Transient hydrodynamic effects influence organic carbon signatures in marine sediments

Radiocarbon signatures measured for organic carbon in differing grain-size sediment fractions and foraminifera in a sediment core retrieved from the southwest Iberian margin spanning the last ~25,000 yr underscore an important link between regional hydrodynamics and interpretations of down-core sedimentary proxies.

Sleeping with the enemy: unravelling the symbiotic relationships between the scale worm Neopolynoe chondrocladiae (Annelida: Polynoidae) and its carnivorous sponge hosts

It is proposed that the worm might use bioluminescence as a lure for prey (increasing the food available for both the sponge and the polynoid) and thus fuelling a mutualistic relationship.

Geomorphology of the Iberian Continental Margin

An overview of the post‐Messinian paleoenvironmental history of the western Mediterranean

A review of the Pliocene-Pleistocene paleoenvironmental history of the western Mediterranean is presented based on micropaleontological and geochemical studies of Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) leg 107

The Ebro margin study, northwestern Mediterranean Sea — an introduction

A dynamic explanation for the origin of the western Mediterranean organic‐rich layers

The eastern Mediterranean sapropels are among the most intensively investigated phenomena in the paleoceanographic record, but relatively little has been written regarding the origin of the
