AbstractThe South Iberian Margin is located at the convergence of the European and African plates, where large magnitude earthquakes in Western Europe take place. Based on data from Spanish and European programs, we identified several active structures which are potential sources of large magnitude earthquakes and tsunamis (Mw > 6) (1). We plan to undertake a paleoseismological onshore-offshore integrated study of the Carboneras Fault (Almería Margin). This is the best approach to accurately determine the past activity and seismic parameters of active faults (geometry, slip rate, maximum event magnitude, recurrence interval and time elapsed since the last earthquake). These parameters are of paramount importance to assess seismic hazard models in the Iberian Peninsula, especially when considering large magnitude earthquakes and long recurrence intervals (10 3 -10 4 years)
