From field data to 3D models

Tremp, Southern Pyrenees

17th - 19th June 2015, Post-Congress

This fieldtrip offers an overview on the tectonic structure of two of the main Southern Pyrenean Thrust sheets in the Tremp area, a world class natural laboratory for Geology.

Most of the stops consist of panoramic views along which the integration of outcrop data into their general, regional 3D geology context will be discussed. The hope is that everyone comes away with a “Pyrenean” way to read and interpret thrust and fold geometries and related stratigraphic features.

  • Montsec Thrust and Montsec Thrust Sheet: Mesozoic carbonates and Paleogene clastics and carbonates, including Ager and Tremp – Graus piggy back, syncline basins.
  • Boixols Thrust, Boixols – Sant Corneli related anticlines, and Boixols Thrust Sheet (Mesozoic and Paleogene carbonates and clastics).
  • Morreres Backthrust.
