The Mediterranean Coast of Spain and the Alboran Sea

  • J. M. Ríos

Abstract

The Mediterranean is a nearly landlocked sea, communicating with the world’s oceans only by way of the narrow Straits of Gibraltar (Fig. 1). The western Mediterranean is bounded on the south by the northern coast of Africa. On the north and west it is bounded by the Iberian Peninsula. Consideration of the Geology and evolution of the Iberian Peninsula requires first that we take note of its principal features to provide a framework for discussion.
