Spanish term or phrase: fases comprensivas
Good evening. The original phrase is:
"...proceso que fue interrumpido por el Ciclo Orogénico Brasileño, caracterizado por FASES COMPRENSIVAS que ocasionaron micropliegues y esquistosidad."

The term is widely used in Spanish (I found several references in Google).

But I have no clue... I'd appreciate all your help
