Mallorca Literature

of Ballearic Islands - Papers

 

This page lists some of the literature (some with attached .pdf files) written about the Upper Miocene of the Islands of Mallorca and Menorca, its carbonate sedimentary record and sequence stratigraphic character in response to base level change. These papers were used to build the section on the the SEPM sequence Stratigraphic web site introducing students and others working with the high frequency sequence stratigraphic signal of carbonates from outcrops and to help solve the problems presented in the associated exercises.
