Abstract

To investigate the continuity of sediment drifting through geological time, the stratigraphic section drilled at DSDP Site 398 was reinterpreted and, using seismic-reflection profiles, was traced throughout the northern Iberian margin. Together, the lithostratigraphic and seismic data indicate that sediment drifting developed along this margin in the Eocene. A second period of sediment drifting commenced during the Pliocene once the Mediterranean basin filled and the flow out of the Strait of Gibraltar resumed. -from Authors
