Abstract

The study area (Algarve) is located near the Eurasia-Africa plate boundary, experiencing significant tectonic and seismic activities. Regional geology is characterised by the presence of Mesozoic and Miocene carbonate rocks which are affected by karst phenomena. The AA. describe the structures observed in the sedimentary cover that may result from the progressive solution of underlying limestones, and then discuss the possible tectonic meaning of at least some of these structures
