  4. Revealing The Secrets Of The Western Mediterranean - A Deep Earthquake And The Overturned Slab

    “The Rif–Betics–Alboran region has been vital in the tectonic evolution of the western Mediterranean. Seismic images support the idea of continuous slab rollback being a prominent force in this region. However, the detailed slab structure and the physical mechanisms generating lo
