ResumenThe Iberian Atlantic Margins (1AM) project was a multinational research programme, coordinated by the Institute of Earth Sciences of Barcelona, CSIC (Spain) involving different academic institutions of Britain (University of Oxford and University of Durham), France (IFREMER), Portugal (University of Lisbon and Institute of Meteorology of Lisbon) and Spain (Institute of Earth Sciences of Barcelona, CSIC) and more than 40 associated scientists of European institutions attached to the main contractors. The project, financed by the European Community within its JOULE-Programme, aimed to explore the deep continental and oceanic Atlantic margins of Iberia for a better understanding of the formation and evolution of Atlantic type margins, outstanding structural features and potential location of hydrocarbons and other natural resources. The project was designed to acquire deep seismic multichannel data and onshore recording of wide angle and refraction data along the North Iberian margin; the West Iberia margin, including the Galicia margin, the Iberia and Tagus abyssal plain, and the continental shelf off Portugal; and the Gorringe Bank region and Gulf of Cadiz. The experimental part of the study consisted of the acquisition of over 3700 km of near vertical incidence deep seismic multichannel reflection data. This together with wide angle reflection and refraction data recorded by land stations and OBS (Ocean Bottom Seismometers) has resulted in a full coverage in terms of crustal structure and velocity information of the study region.
DescripciónThe IAM project was part of an effort to study the deep geology of Europe. In particular the project aimed at exploring the nature of the deep continental and oceanic crust of the Earth in selected areas of the Atlantic margins of Iberia for a better understanding of the processes governing the formation of basins, outstanding structural features and the location of hydrocarbons and other natural resources.
