The facies distribution in the sedimentary units infilling a series of Neogene basins has been used to reconstruct the relief generation and uplift across the Internal Zone of the Betic Cordillera in southern Spain. Uplift amounts and average rates can be estimated using the current elevation of the outcrops of well-dated deposits indicative of ancient sea-level positions. Coral reefs and coastal conglomerates record the initial development of emergent Betic relief during the Langhian… CONTINUE READING
