Preprint
The U-series dating of young and dirty speleothems is challenging due to difficulties in assessing the isotopic composition of contaminating detrital fractions and the low- abundance of the in situ-generated ²³⁰ Th. Here we propose a new dating approach based on the comparison of magnetic directions recorded by speleothems with reference curves fro...

The interfolding remagnetizations are those acquired between two deformational stages, and they are common in inverted sedimentary basins. They can be used as a tool to restore the structure at the remagnetization time (Villalaín et al., 2016). This technique is used in the Central High Atlas (Morocco) in the frame of the CGL2016-77560-C2-P researc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
To deal with magnetic modelling, remanent magnetization as well as susceptibility of the rocks that generate an induced magnetic field by the interaction with the Earth Magnetic field has to be addressed. In presence of primary and/or secondary fields, it is essential to consider the total magnetization as the sum of induced and remanent components...

We report paleointensity results obtained with the multispecimen method (MSP) over the Pliocene sequence of Apnia (Georgia) which records a polarity reversal. Paleointensity determinations with the multispecimen technique were performed on 12 flows with the original (MSP‐DB) and the domain‐state corrected (MSP‐DSC) protocol. Eight MSP‐DSC determina...

We introduce a field trip to the southwestern termination of the Pyrenean sole thrust: the Santo Domingo anticline. The field trip is articulated in three main stops with panoramic views. We pursue to emphasize some outstanding characteristics of this structure: (A) the large-scale progressive (laterally angular) unconformity that crops out in its...

The Santo Domingo-Salinas ranges represent a unique Natural Area in the south-central Pyrenees, and they were declarationas a Protected Landscape in 2015. Available biological and geological knowledge is extensive but lacks of information on groundwater quality. In this work we provide new hydrogeological results and integrate them with previously...
Article
Lightning impacts on forests and trees are still understudied from a tree-ring perspective. Lighting causes direct and indirect damages on forests and trees. Trees struck by lightning can show a growth reduction and lightning storms also trigger wildfires in seasonally dry areas such as Mediterranean mountains. Here we combined dendroecological and...

The Jurassic carbonates of the Central High Atlas (CHA) are affected by a widespread and homogeneous chemical remagnetization. This is an interfolding remagnetization (dated in ca. 100 Ma by comparison with the GAPWP of the African plate) that separates two deformational events; the first one is related to the basinal period in the Atlas (Triassic...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The Atlas system, an ENE-WSW intracontinental chain in the NW of Africa, grew because of the inversion of Mesozoic extensional basins during the Cenozoic convergence between the African and European plates. The Central High Atlas (CHA) is located in the mid-western sector of the chain and is characterized by (i) the presence of an Upper Triassic dé...

Full-text available
New residual magnetic map is presented to help decipher the magnetic imprints in the Central High Atlas (CHA) fold-and-thrust belt. The total intensity map shows a main direction mimicking the N070 trend which features the Atlas range. Detailed structural and paleomagnetic studies performed in the selected area demonstrate that similar shortening f...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Multiple constraints, including poorly known parameters, determine along-strike changes of frontal thrust structures in fold-and-thrust belts. Along the 400 km long, continuous Central Moroccan Atlas belt, structural style shows significant changes, preserving similar figures of shortening. This implies the absence of large-scale vertical-axes rota...
Article
Full-text available
A paleointensity study has been carried out on a Pliocene sequence of 20 consecutive lava flows where previous directional results seem to reflect anomalous behavior of the Earth’s magnetic field (EMF), which can be explained by a polarity transition record or non-averaged paleosecular variation or both. Here, we perform a total of 55 paleointensit...

In this work the analysis of the anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) has been applied to decipher the Mesozoic and Cenozoic evolution of the Central High Atlas. The Atlas is the most important intraplate mountain range in North Africa, resulting from a complex evolution during the Mesozoic and the Cenozoic. Its evolution during the Mesozoic...
