Abstract

This paper describes a complex suite of Plio-Pleistocene calcretes which developed in alluvial fan and fluvial gravels in the Tabernas Basin, Almería Province. The geochemistry, macro- and micromorphological properties and geomorphological positions of the different calcrete units are discussed, and, on the basis of this information, their mode of origin suggested. Calcrete genesis is subsequently considered in the context of the reconstruction of the early phases of landscape development within the Tabernas basin
