Despite the aforementioned limitations, integration of brittle microtectonic and seismicity data in several key sectors of the western Betic Cordillera provide valuable information to clarify their heterogeneous behaviour.
Paleostress analysis of microtectonic structures affecting several outcrops of Upper Miocene to Quaternary sediments were also analyzed by Camacho et al.
Brittle microtectonic data measured on Upper Miocene to Quaternary rocks cropping out in localized sections constitute the available long-term stress indicators in this area (Camacho et al., 1999; Silva et al., 2009; Pedrera et al., 2011).
More than 60 thin sections of the meta-detrital formation have also been studied in order to elucidate the microtectonics. This study reveals a common sequence of deformational episodes recognised in both the Orihuela and the Callosa Mountains.
