Active surface deformation and sub-lithospheric processes in the western Mediterranean constrained by numerical models

Perouse, Eugenie; Vernant, P.; Chery, Jean; Reilinger, Robert; McClusky, Simon


We present the results of dynamic modeling of the western Mediterranean that accounts for observed global positioning system (GPS) surface deformation of the Alboran Sea and surrounding Rif and Betic Mountains as the result of the combined effects of relative motion of the Eurasian and Nubian plates, low strength in the Alboran Sea region and sub-lithospheric processes occurring beneath the External Rif domain. Assuming that the lithosphere behaves elastically over the short time period of the...[Show more]
