Backarc basin inversion and subcontinental mantle emplacement in the crust: Kilometre-scale folding and shearing at the base of the proto-alborn lithospheric mantle (Betic Cordillera, southern Spain)
To constrain the latest evolutionary stages and mechanisms of exhumation and emplacement of subcontinental peridotites in the westernmost Mediterranean, we present here a detailed structural study of the transition from granular spinel peridotite to plagioclase tectonite in the western Ronda Peridotite (Betic Cordillera, southern Spain). We show that the plagioclase tectonite foliation represents an axial surface particularly well developed in the reverse limb of a downward facing moderately...[Show more]
