Palaeogeography and crustal evolution of the Ossa–Morena Zone, southwest Iberia, and the North Gondwana margin during the Cambro-Ordovician: a review of isotopic evidence
ABSTRACT Cambro-Ordovician palaeogeography and fragmentation of the North Gondwana margin is still not very well understood. Here we address this question using isotopic data to consider the crustal
The Ediacaran–Early Cambrian detrital zircon record of NW Iberia: possible sources and paleogeographic constraints
AbstractEdiacaran and Early Cambrian sedimentary rocks from NW Iberia have been investigated for detrital zircon U–Pb ages. A total of 1,161 concordant U–Pb ages were obtained in zircons separated
Geochemistry and Sm–Nd isotopic sources of Late Ediacaran siliciclastic series in the Ossa–Morena Complex: Iberian–Bohemian correlations
The Cadomian basement in central and southern Europe is composed by Ediacaran–Early Cambrian sequences that appear dismembered along the Variscan Orogen. These ancient series contain geochemical and
Tectonic setting and isotopic sources (Sm–Nd) of the SW Iberian Autochthon (Variscan Orogen)
Metasedimentary rock successions in Sierra Albarrana Group (SW Iberia Autochthonous Domain) were deposited during the Early Paleozoic influenced by the evolution of a peri-Gondwanan active margin.
Early Cambrian granitoids of North Gondwana margin in the transition from a convergent setting to intra-continental rifting (Ossa-Morena Zone, SW Iberia)
AbstractTwo distinct Cambrian magmatic pulses are recognized in the Ossa-Morena Zone (SW Iberia): an early rift-(ER) and a main rift-related event. This Cambrian magmatism is related to


Geochronological constraints on the evolution of a suture: the Ossa-Morena/Central Iberian contact (Variscan Belt, south-west Iberian Peninsula)
One of the main tectonic boundaries of the Variscan Belt in the Iberian Peninsula is the Ossa-Morena/Central Iberian contact. This contact is marked by a highly deformed unit (Central Unit) which
The northern Ossa-Morena Cadomian batholith (Iberian Massif): magmatic arc origin and early evolution
Diorites and related rocks in the Mérida area of northern Ossa-Morena (SW Iberia) are intrusive into Precambrian metavolcanic and metasedimentary sequences. Cumulate products from the H2O-rich magmas
Neoproterozoic-early Palaeozoic tectonostratigraphy and palaeogeography of the peri-Gondwanan terranes: Amazonian v. West African connections
Abstract Within the Appalachian–Variscan orogen of North America and southern Europe lie a collection of terranes that were distributed along the northern margin of West Gondwana in the late
