From strike-slip to reverse reactivation: The Crevillente Fault System and seismicity in the Bullas-Mula area (Betic Cordillera, SE Spain)



From strike-slip to reverse reactivation: The Crevillente Fault System and seismicity in the Bullas-Mula area (Betic Cordillera, SE Spain)



Geologica Acta 3(3): 241-250



Several major N80 degrees E faults occur in the Bullas-Mula area (SE Spain). These faults and the numerous thrust slices of the Sierra de Ricote can be related to the movements of the Crevillente (or Cadiz-Alicante) fault system, which causes the westward displacement of the Betic Internal Zone and part of the External Zone. These faults moved with dextral strike-slip from Late Burdigalian to Early Tortonian.
