Lusitanian Basin Salt Tectonics Field Trip | 3 Days

Study the Salt Tectonics in the onshore Lusitanian Basin, Portugal.

Examined in this course:

  • Deformation of the adjacent rocks produced by passive diapirism- J hook, low-angle wedge and high-angle flap-onlap unconformities. Onlap of beds onto growing salt diapirs.
  • Erosion and reworking of diapiric crest and flanks with carbonates locally deposited adjacent to the salt diapir.
  • Geometry and trapping mechanism of a relict oil field.
  • Internal deformation in evaporite diapirs.
  • Dissolution processes and its effects on sedimentation above diapirs.
