Mallorca, Illes Balears (Islas Baleares), España


The island of Majorca (Mallorca), which covers an area of 3640 km2, is the largest and the most central in the Balearic Archipelago.

The island constitutes the most important emerged segment of the so-called Balearic Promontory. The overall structure of the island comprises a set of NE-SW trending basins and ranges developed during a period of tectonic extension active since at least the Late Miocene. Three main ranges can be distinguished from NW to SE: Tramuntana Range (Serra de Tramuntana), Central Ranges (Serres Centrals), and Llevant Ranges (Serres de Llevant). These ranges are Neogene horsts structures, composed mainly of carbonate deposits varying in age from Carboniferous to Middle Miocene (but mainly Mesozoic materials), that have an Alpine internal compressional structure. The so-called Marines de Migjorn i de Llevant unit, build up of post-orogenic Upper Miocene tabular limestones and calcarenites deposits, fringes the Serres along the southern and eastern lowlands of the island. In contrast, the basins responds to half-grabens developed along the detached horizons of ancient NE-SW thrust planes, driven by a nearly radial extensional stress field active until Quaternary times. The most important set of basins are developed at the toe of the Tramuntana Range, generating a Neogene-Quaternary sedimentary through of more than 80 km length, 10-6 km wide and more than 0.7 km deep, limited to the SE by the main NE-SW normal fault of the island, the Sencelles Fault. Within this through are actually assembled the Quaternary sedimentary basins of Palma, Inca, and Alcudia.

Due to the mainly carbonatic nature of almost all the Majorca materials, karstic landforms are characteristic all around the island. Littoral caves, uplifted notches, and partially inundated karstic canyons (named "calas"), are common features in the eastern and southern parts of this island.
