[1] The Sierra de las Estancias is a metamorphic core complex that developed during the late Oligocene to early Miocene extensional collapse of the Betic Cordillera. Structural and paleomagnetic analysis shows that the northern half of the complex has been strongly modified by rotation about an inclined axis, requiring reassessment of the kinematics of the extensional phase of deformation. The extensional tectonic event produced two major detachment faults, associated mylonitic foliation and… CONTINUE READING
