dc.description.abstractDetailed mapping of the Los Mansuetos area, located northeast of the town of Teruel, allows a better lithostratigraphical definition of the Upper Miocene to Pliocene continental sediments exposed in the area. Six main stratigraphic units are distinguished and correlated from E to W of Los Mansuetos. In addition, the complex structure of the area is analyzed: four main fault systems trending NE-SW, NNW-SSE, E-W and NW-SE have been recognized. The NE-SW trending faults and an associated flexure are the youngest structures formed as a result of pervasive dissolution of underlying Triassic evaporite formations cropping out to the north of Los Mansuetos. The other fault systems are probably related to the reactivation of the Teruel and Concud fault systems. The study is relevant in furnishing a more precise geological framework for the stratotype of the Turolianen_US
