From the reviews:

"It offers the present state of the art at the geodynamic structure and heritage of the Mediterranean area … . The TRANSMED Atlas is a truly attention-grabbing paintings in the event you are operating within the Mediterranean and are short of a concise review of the present principles at the geodynamic evolution of this actual zone. … a superb asset of this atlas is the huge, up to date reference record. The atlas is particularly good illustrated. The CD-ROM is, additionally, very person friendly." (Manuel Sintubin, Geologica Belgica, Vol. eight (3), 2005)

Oceanic domains are likely to isolate distinct benthic faunas on their conjugate continental margins, whereas they can help homogenizing pelagic fossils across wide areas. Fossil contents and sedimentologic trends, together with carbonate vs. silica contents of sedimentary layers are also used to obtain paleobathymetric estimates, which in turn provide information on tectonic subsidence history, all processes relevant to rifting, continental crustal stretching and oceanic accretion. 1993, 2000; Roure 1994; Yilmaz et al.

E. west of Corsica and Sardinia) the depth of the top of the layer responsible for the magnetic anomalies is at 8-9 km (Le Borgne et al. 1971), which is the depth of the top of oceanic layer 2 as indicated by deep seismic soundings (Zanolla et al. 1998). This confirms that the crustal structure in the deep basinal area is typical of an oceanic crust. The nature of the crust in rifted areas such as the Alboran Sea (thinned continental crust, widespread yet areally discrete volcanism) and the Valencia trough (large volcanic body) makes the magnetic signatures of these areas much different from those of the deep basinal areas.

In the eastern portion of the Algerian basin the magnetic anomalies follow a clear-cut N-S trend which is the southward continuation of the magnetic anomalies following the western Corsica-Sardinia margin . As elsewhere in the Mediterranean, they can be interpreted as the result of magmatic intrusions nT < 100 Fig. 6. Magnetic anomalies (after Zanolla et al. 4 .
