Abstract

In this paper, a detailed study of the submarine geomorphology surrounding the Balearic Promontory, a northeast prolongation of the Neogene Betic Range in southern Spain, is presented from a series of high-resolution tools including swath bathymetry and seismic reflection profiling. The study identifies the main features of the continental shelf, slope and basins surrounding the Balearic Islands. The swath data show that tectonics plays an important role in shaping the submarine slopes of Eivissa and Formentera islands, as well as its interplay with sedimentary processes, especially mass wasting
