Tertiary deposits of the north-western Iberian Peninsula
are heterogeneous because they occur in several morpho-structural
positions as isolated and dispersed basins and outerops. The quality
of the palaeontological record is usually very poor and there are
scarce data. Correlation depends on a wide range of criteria which
arc not always equivalent:
mineralogy and petrology,
geomorphology, tectonics and comparison with better-known
and better-dated facies in regions nearby. The results lack
homogeneity and there arc notable discrepancie.
