Geophysical evidence for lithospheric delamination beneath the Alboran Sea and Rif–Betic mountains

Abstract

Geophysical evidence is presented for an episode of active delamination of a piece of continental lithosphere. Observations of earthquake hypocentre locations, seismic wave velocities and attenuation, Bouguer gravity, seismic reflection and drill hole data are combined with surface geology to infer the presence of a high-velocity, seismically active, rigid… (More)
